Current Status and Timescales

 

Given the scale of our application and the value of the volume of pledges our community has provided, Openreach have indicated that they will install fibre to every household and business in Upton Grey, Weston Patrick, Corbett and Mark and part of Tunworth – including those that have not pledged. The Little Dean area is not currently included though. To double check that this includes you, go to the festival website above, click on Upton Grey Superfast Broadband and then “details of Openreach offer”. Pages 3 – 11.

 

Our pledging target has now been met and validated by DCMS (Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport) so the next step is for Openreach to install our fibre connections.

 

Work should complete by about next Autumn and Openreach will inform pledgers when this happens. At that point, pledgers should place a Fibre Broadband connection order with their chosen supplier – ideally within about 10 days. When this is supplied DCMS will ask you to confirm this with them.

 

Many thanks again to all those who have submitted their pledges so rapidly and enabled the whole community to have the benefits of Superfast Fibre Broadband
