Broadband Update Dec 2018

Post in Utilities by Steve Jones
We have great news. BT OpenReach have commissioned all premises from Lochluichart to Achanalt. Everyone here can now order a fibre service.

Everyone can order fibre now

All 133 premises in Phases 1 and 2 of our project, from Gorstan to Achnasheen, and from Little Garve to Aultguish, except the most remote premises, are now enabled for a fibre service. BT Openreach has completed the job on time.

The next update will give you details of what's happening for the remote properties, Strathgarve, and Garve to Gorstan, and what we are looking at in Garve itself.

So get ordering that new broadband service - you may get it in time for Christmas.

Self Diggers

There are still a couple of self digs still to be done.

But there are around 15 self-digs which have been done and for which we have not yet had a grant application.

This self-dig grant scheme closes on 31 December.

We have to draw a line under this and bring it to a close. We can't let it hang on indefinitely.

So please, if you want a grant, then give us your apllication before the end of December.

Grant application after this date will not be paid.

So you know why only part of Garve is connected to “the box” and when the rest will be done?

Hi Robert

We will provide a full udpate on Phases 3 and 4 of the project in the next few days. This will cover off what we know about what is in planning for Garve by HIE and BT OpenReach .

Hope it's ok to mention this here (I'm not advertising or anything!) but if you're taking out a new broadband contract you should really consider going through a cashback site - I've seen some deals today worth well over £100!


Kerrie Doswell said:

And a huge thank you to everyone who's been involved in making this happen - so excited!!!
