Yanwath in Cumbria has the distinction of being the first community to benefit from a live FTTC cabinet via the BT and Cumbria County Council project with more expected very soon.
We believe the cabinet is located across the road from the Yanwath Gate Inn in the village. We look forward to seeing the first speed tests from the area as people sign up to faster services.
Yanwath and Eamont Bridge form a civil parish with a population around the 450 mark, and therefore we think it is safe to say it is a rural location. The cabinet is fed from Penrith exchange which is some 4km by road away, thus the improvements in speed will be very significant for those in the village.
