Full fibre from Openreach small village trials appearing
Of the 13 villages forming part of a 50,000 rural full fibre build funded commercially we can report that we have found two areas where full fibre is now ready to order, and of course is in our package searches.
The two villages where FTTP is appearing already are West Calder and Kentford. More areas do have some FTTP available but was pre-existing to the announcement and likely to have been via the local authority BDUK project.
- Cranfield - build appears to have started
- West Calder - first bits of FTTP have gone live
- Flockton - build appears to have started
- Hesketh Bank
- Kentford - first bits of FTTP have gone live
- Lingfield - surveys are showing up
- Lundin Links - build appears to have started
- Mickle Trafford - build appears to have started
- Okehampton - build appears to have started
- Ottery St Mary
- Seal - build appears to have started
- Tarporley - build appears to have started
Of course people living locally will have a much better idea of what is happening, so if you have any updates on this let everyone know in the comments or email us.
50,000 premises of FTTP is of course just a small part of the UK wide picture, but it all adds up, on Saturday morning as part of our weekly updates the labs.thinkbroadband.com/local stats site was showing full fibre coverage at 10.14% and as we write this news item our internal figure is running at 10.17%.
