Eleven more areas gain ADSL via partnerships
Monday 20 October 2003 16:12:00 by Andrew Ferguson

Over the weekend the demand tracker picked up seven exchanges that had been given a Ready for Service (RFS) date, and no-one appeared to know why. This has now been clarified and these RFS dates are the result of five partnerships between RDAs and BT Wholesale. The exchanges involved are:

Exchange name

RFS Date

Partnership

Abercynon 4th February 2004 Wales - The Valleys
Aylestone 14th January 2004 Leicestershire Partnership
Chirk 18th February 2004 Wales -Wrexham Partnership
Gowerton 28th January 2004 Wales - Swansea Partnership
Hirwaun 4th February 2004 Wales - The Valleys
Kegworth 14th January 2004 Leicestershire Partnership
Llanidloes 18th February 2004 Wales - Wrexham Partnership
Mayals 28th January 2004 Wales - Swansea Partnership
Ruabon 18th February 2004 Wales - Wrexham Partnership
Shepshed 14th January 2004 Leicestershire Partnership
Woodhouse Eaves 14th January 2004 Leicestershire Partnership

As with many other partnership schemes the exchanges concerned are often well on their way to being enabled via BTs demand led scheme, the involvement of an RDA can shave many months or maybe years off that wait For people in the relevant areas it can only be good news, for those areas that did not even have a trigger it is even more of a surprise.

Lets hope these partnerships will see the success that ActNow in Cornwall has. The level of take-up in the ActNow areas has shown that demand is there, and with local input it can be stimulated.
