Four out of five cabinets now live in Sutton Courtenay

The first cabinet went live in Sutton Courtenay back in September and today has seen the Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, Ed Vaizey attended the opening ceremony for the 4th cabinet on the exchange which is in his constituency (there is one cabinet left to enable and it is in the roll-out plans).

The Better Broadband for Oxfordshire project like all the projects draws its critics like almost anything involving a local authority or Government but has declared that some 20,000 premises now have a fibre based service available to them.

The Sutton Courtenay exchange serves over 1,000 homes and businesses and we estimate that around 85% of those will get superfast broadband (30 Mbps or faster) once cabinet 2 goes live.


Interesting signs.

Shame Milton Park industrial estate still has slow ADSL connections . . . .

They probably stole ours back in 2011 when they started to install our fibre and we are still waiting for it now and its near the end of 2014.

And to top that our broadband connection is that bad when it rains we loose our connection, its really sad that people that would benefit the most will never get it and most people that got 10Mb on ADSLx now have fibre.

I'm interested to know how long it will take for LLU based providers to come online. TalkTalk just say "check again later" and don't even say if they have any plans to install eqipment.

I am specifically interested in TalkTalk as they seem to be a viable alternative to Sky. Sutton Courtenay is a Virgin Media black hole, BT TV does not have Sky channels, and Sky themselves keep upping their prices and trying to persuade us to pay even more again to stop blocking low resolution TV (so called HD, which is a resolution I had surpassed on my computers a dozen years ago).
