Our newsletter now provides fortnightly project updates including completed cabinet lists - please sign up here


CAPACITY - We are aware that some cabinets have reached capacity. This is because BT build in the availability of a new service for a proportion of the businesses and residents when a cabinet is first enabled. This will increase dependent upon demand. We are pushing BT to clear these issues as a matter of urgency, conscious that some cabinets are unavailable for an unacceptably long period. Please bear with us and additional capacity will be added as soon as possible
