From the latest conversation i had with the council it seems like that may be out of date, as the cabinet was originally in the roll out plans but has now been "put on hold".
The fact it was in the original BT plans is actually the reason it was almost missed from both upgrade programs. It apeears that BT "changed their plans" putting this cabinet "on hold" after the development of the councils BB4S plans. Therefore when the council drew up their plans this cabinet was alrady being upgraded and did not need their funds.
It was only the fact that i contacted the council asking for clarification on if they were including it in their plans, that they identified the changes. Had i not done it cabinet 35 would not be getting added to the council plans.
Have to wonder how many other cabinets BT have now put "on hold" and not informed the relevant councils. I'm surprised they are able to change plans like this without informing other relevant agencies, especially when council plans have been developed based around them
Seems that way doesn't it.
But hey, at least it has been identified now and the council have agreed it needs to be upgraded as part of their BB4S program.
Just have to get BT to confirm they are not going to upgrade it.
Just hope they don't mess around saying they do plan to upgrade it and then keep it on a permanent "hold"
It seems Openreach are unwilling to spend their own money on cabs they deem unviable but have no problem spending the councils money.
Is that not what all the BDUK schemes are about ?
All customers will be connected by a point to multi-point 5ghz connection. We would aim to not have more than 10 people per trunk to aboid conjestion.
We currently have 4 FTTC connections at different locations, load-balanced together to provide reduancy and fast video streaming as well as fast concurrent file downloads.
All end users are connected using a PPPOE server, which username and password authentication. The backbone of the network is WPA protected with only endpoint stations being allowed to connect via their MAC code.
Once we reach enough people we will be adding a FTTP connection, allowing for more bandwidth and also allowing faster speeds.
If you have any suggestions, id be happy to hear them. Feel free to message me directly to not spam the forum.
Website coming soon...
Are you able to say who the provider is yet please ?
