Good news for Fibre GarDen
We covered the worries over Fibre GarDen the other day and an update from ITS Technology has confirmed that the plans for an alternative backhaul solution connecting in Sedbergh has led to the project area now being de-scoped from the much larger Connecting Cumbria project.
"It has been a challenging time, but the commitment of the investors and the fact that ITS Technology Group has found an alternative means to provide superfast backhaul means that we finally have all the pieces of the project in place, and in our control, which is very reassuring for all concerned."Tony Roberts, Financial Director and Secretary of Fibre GarDen
The 64km fibre network will hopefully now start construction with the new plan being to start at the two extreme ends of the network and meet in the middle, which we suspect will mean the obligatory final fibre fuse being celebrated with tea and cakes as the five year journey completes.
