Gigaclear Progress in Fastershire area?

Now we have this dedicated forum I wonder whether anyone else would like to comment on any progress being made by Gigaclear in the Fastershire areas? I'm in Lot 3c in the Brookend section, and the current start date is currently given as Q1 2020 (originally it was due to be complete last year).
There is no visible plan now, just a postcode checker. I am aware of work in progress between Chaxhill and Westbury-on-Severn, but I believe that they should have extended out by now if they are to reach other areas on time (my area is among the furthest from their current network, so needs all the intervening areas to be completed before my area can be connected).
Is anyone in an area that is being worked on? Is anyone in an area that isn't being worked on but should be according to the postcode checker?
At present I (still) have no confidence of the current plan providing me with FTTP within 2-3 years.

Hi Aimee,
I have been registered with you website for about three years, but have never received any updates (presumably because there's been no progress). I have also contacted Gigaclear by e-mail or phone each year. The latest information I have since the build dates were removed from Fastershire's website is that the build in my area will start during 2020. It was supposed to be finished in 2018. As my area (Brookend) was due to be one of the last in Lot 3c to be built I am interested in how the other areas in Lot3c are progressing - is there any information you can share? I am aware of some work in the Chaxhill and Westbury areas, but have not heard of any connection being made as yet - can you say when the first Lot3c connections will go live? Are Gigaclear on track with the latest plan (whatever that is)?

Oh well,no news is no news.
Fastershire should publish a quarterly update on their website from Gigaclear's monthly updates to them in the next week or two, so I guess we'll see if there is any progress then.

The latest ThinkBroadband mapping data now shows some Gigaclear connections around Higham, so we now have the first connections in the Gloucestershire part of lot 3c.
