Goose, if that information about Watercress Way is accurate you will be my hero!!
I live on that road, and about 6 weeks ago had a couple of BT guys turn up at the door to sell my infinity (which I signed up for)
The next day I thought I better check with BT and got told we are not getting it - and havent been able to get a straight answer since!
I am DESPERATE to get off the 2.5Mb I currently get - and if this is true and we are getting it I will be dancing around the lounge!
If anyone sees any OR/BT people on Watercress, could they ask and post? I know I will!
i spoke to an engineer re broughton area and he reckoned live by mid April. And that might be up to 100 mb sppeds. Man I could download the a song in a few seconds literally.
Wingman_1 - Where abouts in Broughton was the engineer working?
Apart from the fibre fleet in Tongwell (a few weeks back) and Milton Road last week, I have not seen or heard anything.
I did get some information from MKC and they said that BT/OR had not ruled out putting PTTP in Broughton Gate, but it was still unclear eactly which parts of Broughton are getting FTTP.
Well they've been in Broughton Square for a good few days now but more than that I don't know.
