BT Restores Rural Broadband Link
By: MarkJ - 10 December, 2003 (9:32 AM)

BT has finally managed to fix FDM Broadbands hi-speed rural Berkshire link (see news), but only after FDM openly accused the incumbent operator of obstructing its service:

BT took nearly two weeks longer than promised to deliver high-speed backhaul to the village of Kingsclere, was four weeks behind schedule in Hungerford, and managed a delay of six weeks in Kintbury, according to FDM.

While FDM said it welcomes the return of its service in Lambourn, it is continuing with an official complaint about BT's behaviour. This complaint is currently being examined by Oftel.

"The time it took to find and fix the fault in Lambourn was really unacceptable," an FDM spokesman told ZDNet UK .

BT was apparently unavailable to comment on the matter.
