Nothing too exciting to report as yet as not seen any build activity, but received the 'standard' email about progress...
I’m writing to give you an update on your community funded FTTP Project in Monkton and I am pleased to say that we are making good progress and the survey and planning work is complete. We are now in the build stage of our deployment where we can actually start to install the fibre network and associated infrastructure. You might see our engineers working nearby but they could also be working anywhere on the route from your community back to the local telephone exchange.
We will be in touch with you again in the next few months as we get nearer to the go live date, however I just wanted to let you know that as it stands, we are on track for your go live date in January 2022.
Separate to this, some of the 'poorly served' part of the village has had the FTTP infrastructure installed and is now live. We also have Orbital/VFast rolling out their AltNet FTTP service in parts of the village (not to my postcode however but not too fussed).
Slightly off topic but potentially relevant - has anyone any DIRECT experience of OR (or DCMS) pursuing people who have pledged a voucher in a Demand Led CFP but then changing their mind when FTTP actually arrives and not taking a service ? (and is this why the target on a DLCFP is 50% higher than the actual cost ?)
