ARENA has chased up the roll-out of Superfast Broadband to Church Minshull, following Julian Cobley's statement that this would be done by July this year (see previous article).

In his response, Julian Cobley has said,

"Firstly, please let me apologise that there has been a delay to the go live date of your Fibre Broadband implementation. With regard to this delay, we have suffered unforeseen engineering issues in some areas, typically caused by blocked telecommunications ducts. Many of these ducts haven't been serviced in many years, so we're coming across all sorts of challenges, which means a knock-on effect of some areas are being delayed. I will ask the installation team to review what the specific issue is, in Church Minshull and give you a more accurate delivery date."

"That said we have been able to accelerate some areas and are on target to pass 40,000 premises in the next few weeks, marking the half way point of the deployment."

ARENA will give an update of any specific issue in Church Minshull's implementation, once Julian Cobley has responded.
