Fibre Update 2
People were wondering why the road closure notice has been extended.
Ben Stone tells me:
“that Gigaclear need to fix some blocked ducts which prevent connection POTs (the black box on the road outside your house) being declared ready for service (RFS) by the contractor. Before this happens, they have to run duct testing and when faults are identified these need to be fixed. In this case it requires a road closure notice to enable the crews to complete the work safely.
This work is likely to run until the end of the notice which is 17 Jan.”
Hopefully, soon after that date those who have registered should get notified their connection POT is RFS and they can then use Gigaclear’s website to order a service. You can register by going to their webpage and entering your details at ‘Can I Get Gigaclear?’
I am trying to find out how long it takes between ordering for service and going ‘live’.
