Re: Dalkeith Exchange - BT Infinity

Here's the crux of my email:

 

BT has enabled their "Infinity" product at Dalkeith exchange, but as yet, have made plans only to make the service available to EH22 postcode regions. They have a rollout scheduled for Gorebridge exchange, which is also welcome. However, this could potentially leave a vast swathe of Midlothian without access to the FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) product. And that only means more of the current lacklustre broadband provision we experience daily. Even if BT can massage the statistics to show that the entire region is "covered" by super-fast broadband, real experience will be very different.

 

Their potential exclusion of the postcode area would be foolhardy at a time when small businesses, householders and families are all served by a district which already has good provision of education, with new schools being built, healthcare (stories I can compare with other parts of Scotland would make it seem this way) and also a high ratio of internet connections, satellite television, and other on-demand services (3G mobile coverage isn't bad on some networks) etc....

 

I asked that the councillor ensures BT Openreach is acutely aware that demand is here in EH18, not only from current residents, but also strategically from the Council who does all it can to ensure the best available services for the area and continues to ensure Midlothian is amongst the most attractive regions in Scotland to live, work and raise a family (and I've lived elsewhere... apart from the crappy broadband Midlothian has a LOT going for it). 

 

Finally, there is an increasing trend of linking house prices with broadband, I read it in the ESPC, couldn't find it online to quote though.

 

I don't know how much the councillors care about the internet for their residents and super-fast broadband, maybe even less so. Unless we ask them, they might think it's a non-issue, I guess. 

 

So nothing lost, you're right John, other than a bit of time.

Re: Dalkeith Exchange - BT Infinity

Hi IMJolly, ahha, nice glad I can help you with something 😉   I found a list of the councillors covering my postcode via the "in my area" box on the front page of the Midlothian website:

http://www.midlothian.gov.uk/

 

I sent to Bob Constable so far. Will send to others shortly.

Re: Dalkeith Exchange - BT Infinity

I agree with you comment and think it will months and months before we see infinity in EH19 & EH18. even that I consider wishful thinking

Re: Dalkeith Exchange - BT Infinity

Is there any way to get even an indicative date of when Infinity might be available in the EH22 2QH area?


Thanks.
