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 - power booked in on the 12th May; DNO unable to improve date due to network upgrade

Dowsby 602 - Shifted - estimated completion now late April. Issue has arisen with steel duct which will be resolved next week

Fulbeck 606 - replan in progress. Estimated completion late April

Gosberton 5 – Continued issues on bridge have shifted timescales - estimated for late April.

Grantham 16 - build complete. products will be available from this cabinet within 2 weeks

Holbeach St Johns 1 - Planning issue, survey required. ECD end of April

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

Kirton 8 - build complete. products will be available from this cabinet within 2 weeks

Lincoln 50 - late April estimation. New duct required.

Metheringham 3/2 (Nocton) - Minor delay to delivery expected, meeting with sub-contractor held at site; new cabinet location agreed, fast-track documents with highways department. Traffic management beginning moved - agreed start 13th April

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 – late April ECD. New underground chamber required.
