Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete the survey Alex Chalk created. We’re still waiting to hear back from BT, Fastershire and Virgin to see if the results of the survey have made any difference. In terms of the difference it may have:
- BT – They may decide there’s enough interest from the community and the cabinet is now considered commercially viable, or enough interest to reducing the amount quoted to us to part fund the cabinet.
- Virgin – Increased potential to be included in their “project lightening” roll-out. Springbank in Cheltenham has recently been included in Virgin’s plans. From what Virgin have said before, i think the block paving in our area will make it prohibitively expensive for them.
- Fastershire – Help ensure we’re included in Stage 3 of their roll-outs (Superfast Extension Programme)
