Next Generation Broadband Delayed

You may remember that earlier in the year we posted that the Whitwell (SLWHT) telephone exchange would be upgraded by OpenReach (The arm of BT that deals with such things) in 2011 to cope with the next generation of higher speed broadband dubbed FTTC and FTTP (Fiber To The Cabinet and Fiber To The Premises). Unfortunately it looks like this has now been pushed back to 1st March 2012 – although this date may still not be set in stone, as Whitwell (and Hodthorpe and Creswell as they use the same telephone exchange) was due to have up to 24Mbit/s services by March of 2011 but this did not happen.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the situation and the RFS (Ready For Service) dates for the next generation of broadband for Whitwell and will let you know if anything changes.
