Good Morning Christopher,

Thanks for taking time to write to us.

This cabinet is in Phase 6 of this project, so due to complete by 30th September. Looking at the latrest update, I believe we will sometime in August. As we move forward, I will get a clearer view of anticipated completion date.

Regards
Steve

Hi Chris,

I am still looking at an August finish. We will try to pull forward if we can, but that is the indicative timescale I have at the moment.

Good Afternoon David,

They are all due by 30th September, but we are trying to bring them in earlier where possible. At this point, I have nothing more concrete in terms of actual dates, but we will know more as we get to the end of this month.

Hi Stephen
do you have any updates as to when the cabinet will go live as I have just had notice of price increases for my line and broadband and I have 30 day within which I can cancel my contract with no penaltys and switch to fibre if the cabinet is live

Thanks

Hi Christopher,

BT are still sticking with the end of August as the expected date, but should this change, then we will update the website.

Hi again Stephen
I was asking about fibre to Saltfleetby Cabinet 2 on my ISP forum and some one provided this information about the cabinet

from their openreach system:

FTTC is currently not available on this cabinet 2 due to following reasons:- Cabinet to be enabled between Apr-16 and Mar-17. Date to be confirmed once the work is complete..depend on traffic management and final testing from the exchange to the cabinet.

Could you throw any more light on this please,
Thanks
Chris

Hello Chris,

Steve is on annual leave this week so I am responding on his behalf.

As Steve stated earlier, BT Openreach are still stating the end of August as the expected date.

I think the issue here is that there is some level of disconnection between BT Openreach and the Broadband Delivery UK project. The dates on the Openreach website are sometimes vague or inaccurate in areas covered by our project. However the details we receive are specifically from the BT Openreach project manager in charge of the BDUK work in Lincolnshire, so are a much more accurate reflection of what is going on.

I will raise an enquiry to check the latest position regarding Saltfleetby 2 and post an update here as soon as I have any further information.

Kind regards,
Owen

Hi Chris & John,

Please see below latest from BT.

"Saltfleetby 2 is all stood, powered, coppered; just needs light providing. It should be RFS by end August".

Kind regards,
Owen

Thanks for the update , they have been working on the new cabinet again this morning,
What is light providing mean
Thanks Owen

Hello Chris,

In the context 'providing light' means getting the fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, once the fibre is in place and jointed a light reading is taken to prove the fibre is functional.

Owen

Thanks for your explanation

Hi
Is there any update as to whether this cabinet is still likely to be RFS at the end of August or are we looking at around the 15th of September which I have seen on another site
