Fibre broadband in 2018?

The Parish Council has been given May 2018 as the 'probable' date of being able to order fibre broadband for Maisemore.

An email from the contractor says:

"Having investigated our network records the cabinet to which  Maisemore premises are connected (Exchange GLOUCESTER  Cabinet 27) is not 'Fibre to the Cabinet' enabled.

There is, therefore, delay in providing 'Fibre to the Premises' as part of the Broadband UK  project.  We are expecting, all being well, that you should be able to order fibre broadband from the second week of May 2018.

We often find unforeseen challenges and complexities that we simply couldn’t plan for.  These may need either more time to work around or a different solution altogether. Our published dates in most cases are accurate.  However, because of the above, unfortunately they can move. We strive to share as much information as we possibly can to help you to make your choices as much as possible.
We apologise there has been a delay but each cabinet will involve different amounts of work to fully enable and make it ready for orders.

Rest assured we are doing everything we can to deliver service as soon as we can."

No timescale is given from this 'probable' date when fibre broadband can be ordered to its actual implementation.

Would you please clarify what is proposed.

There are three types of fibre broadband:
~ FTTC = fibre to the cabinet
~ FTTP = fibre to the pole
~ FTTH = fibre to the home (i.e. premises)

What service is being proposed for Maisemore?

Since I cannot find a "Contact Us" route could I please point out that the Mobile Library date to the left column needs updating to Thursday 9 February 2017.

... and twice I've had the message "An error occurred while the server was being contacted." though it's worked again after a few seconds
