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 […]
