Connecting Cheshire Update
The roll-out of super fast broadband continues to make progress. Download the file for all the latest.
Our Superfast Champion, Mike Grundy, has been in touch with Connecting Cheshire for further clarification of the state of play for Chelford.
Their response was "no work complete yet on the Chelford exchange, work is due to be complete there from October this year onward."
Looking for further clarification, Mike received this further response from Connecting Cheshire regarding forecast dates.
"Forecast dates are based on whole exchange areas, not individual towns/villages . These dates can move back as well as forwards, due to the nature of an engineering build of this complexity and scale. The forecast dates on the postcode checker are reviewed every quarter, based on predictions of the work due to be completed over each quarter. The dates are adjusted each time a phase is completed, so this may not mean your area has been 'put back', it's just another part of the exchange area has been completed. However, as far as we are aware, we are having some infrastructure issues with Chelford".
We look forward to the day when spooling is a thing of the past.
