Re: Milton Keynes / Bradwell Abbey Exchange / FTTP Trial

Some great news for those in Broughton Gate, and indeed the rest of MK (on the wrong side of the current digital divide). Extract and link below:

 


BT announced on 19-Dec-11 that it is to extend the reach of its super-fast broadband network in Milton Keynes. 


They revealed that 20,000 more homes and businesses in Bradwell Abbey will be able to receive super-fast broadband by the end of 2012. Around 9,600 homes and businesses will be able to receive service over FTTP and 10,700 will be served by BT’s fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) super-fast fibre-based broadband. 

Around 11,000 homes and businesses are already within reach of the FTTP technology and today’s announcement means that about 95 per cent of premises served by the Bradwell Abbey exchange will have access to faster broadband through a mix of FTTP and FTTC technologies.

Re: Milton Keynes / Bradwell Abbey Exchange / FTTP Trial

Good news indeed, but only of academic interest to the large areas of MK that are NOT on the Bradwell Abbey exchange ( including the areas around Bradwell Abbey itself, for reasons explained at the beginning of this thread, lol ! )  Over here in Bradwell Village 1.0 to 1.5 mbps is still the norm.  Still the FTTC cabinets are here, and will one day be RFS or so it is rumoured.....

Re: Milton Keynes / Bradwell Abbey Exchange / FTTP Trial

Nothing solid as yet, are you a new build? There is some discussion in some circles about infrastructure problems in a couple of area over that side. If the area is still in the process of being built then it may be a while before FTTP will become available, SMBA is also being backfilled with FTTC.

I'm sure there has been talk of FTTC in recent months. Have a look at the MK Broadband action Group (MKBAG) at www.bb4mk.org I think you will find it interesting!

Re: Milton Keynes / Bradwell Abbey Exchange / FTTP Trial

I'm in Walnut Tree, just over the road from Walton and I've got FTTP on order, so maybe not too much longer, have you checked lately to see if it's available?
