Superfast Broadband Project - Progress

The recent roadworks by the Church facilitated the install of the new cabinet required to support the delivery of superfast broadband to the village. Subsequently an engineer who was connecting the existing circuits to the new cabinet confirmed that the necessary power supply had been installed but the fibre cable connection back to the exchange in Tysoe had not yet been provided.

The following advice is included on the CSW Broadband project website. Now is the time to register interest if we are to convince the project to extend the fibre around the village to give us the very speeds available.

So once my new cabinet is in place does that mean I can get superfast broadband?

Not immediately. Standing the cabinet is only a very small part of the process to bring superfast broadband to our communities. Once the cabinet has been stood it needs a power supply, and this entails a different contractor who will probably work to different timescales. It will also require a connection to the existing cabinet. By far the biggest job or at least the one with the highest number of variables and potential pitfalls is the fibre connection back to the exchange. There are often problems with blocked or broken ducting, tree roots and other issues to overcome before the fibre can actually be connected through. Once the fibre is in place it has to be connected to the main spines and tested before the new service is ready to accept orders.

The best thing is to register for more information through our website. We will send you our e-newsletter, which comes out once a month and contains project updates, information about local meetings and events, broadband news, FAQs, competitions and more. By providing us with your landline number and address we can also send specific information as we learn more about what is happening in your area.
