CAPACITY - We are aware that some cabinets are at capacity, which will mean that you cannot order an upgrade at this point in time. BT is aware of this issue and is working to upgrade your cabinet. Unfortunately, BT do not provide information to us regarding when individual cabinets will be updated. They have launched a new 'waiting list' facility. Please ensure that you are put on this waiting list by your ISP.

Delayed cabinets

Burgh on Bain 4 - This is going to suffer significant delays - powerwork now underway

Dowsby 602 - Shifted again - Issue with steel duct is causing further delay. Estimated completion mid-May

Fulbeck 606 - Planning delay due to requirement to re-site the PCP. Delivery expected mid-May.

Gosberton 5 – Unable to duct bridge - looking now for a pole solution

Holbeach St Johns 1 - Moleploughing required on new planned route. ECD Late May.

Kirton 5 - Traffic management has delayed this - estimated late April

Kirton 8 - Apologies recieved from BT due to an incorrect update. This build is not complete, but is expected to be in early May

Lincoln 50 - Late April estimation. New duct required.

Metheringham 3/2 (Nocton) - Cabinet is stood and powered. Estimated completion early May

Metheringham 3/1 (Dunston) - Cabinet stood, powered and coppered. Estimated completion early May

Owersby Moor E4 - This cabinet has been removed from the project because of excessive build costs. There is a requirement for a directional drill to be completed and this alone would cost over £150K and on that basis, we cannot justify this level of expenditure. We will of course continue to seek alternative technological solutions for this area

Spalding 16 – Early May estimate completion date. New underground chamber required.
