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.

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 – Estimation shifted to mid April.
