Hello Julian

 I’ve just seen the news article regarding the funding from BDUK in Cheshrie here: http://www.connectingcheshire.org.uk/?page_id=13

 Is there any information yet on specific plans? In particular will it be possible for me to find out if the overlooked cabinets in Alsager are being included?

Julian:

Hi Tony,

Sorry this information didn’t come out to you directly at the time. I’ll make sure you are on our distribution lists. Specific plans are being drawn up at the moment and BT has started their survey work. It would be remiss of me to categorically confirm the rollout plans at this stage but I should be able to give you a good idea. Can you provide me with the postcodes in question and we’ll go a check.

****

Me:

Thanks, yes – please put me on the distribution list

My postcode is ST7 2LX - and I am connected to cabinet 8 in Alsager. There are, I think, around 6 additional postcodes connected to that cabinet.

Other Cabinets which (as far as I can tell) have been missed are:
Cabinet 25 – associated with ST7 2YR
Cabinet 18 – associated with ST7 2EZ

Thanks for your help

Hi Tony,

On a quick check through the provisional data, and subject to survey, I believe these the postcodes you have mentioned will be part of the project.

Regards

Julian

Hello Julian

That is good news, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the survey. Thanks a lot for looking that up for me. Is there any indication of time-scales at this stage.

Cheers

Tony.

Julian:

Hi Tony,

No additional timescales at this stage. The first live cabinets will be ready just less than 12 months from now. The full programme will be complete 2 years from now. I’ll come back to you when we have more information.

Regards
Julian
