Hemswell Exchange

#1
Hi there,

I was wondering if anybody can help.

I was feeling quite excited yesterdy when I saw carillion laying cable from the main exchange to my village and even more so today when I was travelling through the exchange village to see a nice shiney new cabinet next to an old one there.

My question is relatively simple to those in the know, how long? How long from cable laying can I expect to wait for finalisation and for superfast to go live?

I have seen various different answers around the internet ranging from a few weeks to lots of months... does anybody know for sure when Hemswell and all the surrounding villages will be live?

Thanks

Chris

Thanks for that information,

Do you have a list of the cabinets and in what order they will be going live?

I'm on cabinet 5 so I assume there are a few in the area.

Hi Chris

Hemswell 5 is due in the next phase, between April and September

Please keep an eye on the project updates page where we publish information about completed cabinets

Thanks

Hi Naomi,

Cabinet 7 was enabled a month ago yet no other cabinets in the area have? I dont really understand why they do part work at a site and then disappear for a while before doing another bit.

The time frames are really poor from you guys, between april and september, a 5 month window.

Sorry but I am a tad impatient but really would like a bit more of a secured date as to when they may be looking at returning here and continuing work on the other cabinets.

Thanks

Hi Chris

Thanks for writing in.

Unfortuantly with over 800 structures in the project it is impossible for us to provide updates for cabinets which are not yet delayed. We have tried to keep residents informed by providing them with a 'time slot'. We understand that this is frustrating for you but we cannot provide any further timescales for these cabinets.

Kind regards
Naomi

sooo I went to uswitch and popped in my postcode (just out of curiousity) and yey, I can have fibre optic.

Figured I had just missed an update here, or you hadn't sent the list out yet.

Shot off to BT and started clicking packages... went to buy to be told NO.. not ready.

It was a sad sad moment.

Hi,

Several people have ordered fibre optic on cabinet 5, one of which I know has a start date of tomorrow.

I, to, have ordered and am due to go live on the 24th. Still nothing has changed here and the cabinet still hasnt got the fibre is here sticker on it?

are they due to complete this tomorrow?

Good Morning Chris,

Cabinet No. 5 went live on 13th May, so everyone fed from that cabinet can now order upgraded services.

Steve
