Superfast broadband roll-out update...

Home » News » Superfast broadband roll-out update...

A new roadside panel has been installed outside the telephone exchange in preparation for a larger cabinet. All the current phones lines need to be connected to this cabinet as the first step. Further survey work will then be completed for this cabinet and the new cabinet will be installed and connected to both superfast fibre and power.

It is good news that some work has started, but roll-out is still some way off unfortunately and this is now likely to be towards spring next year before we are connected to superfast broadband.

In total there will be 3 new cabinets in our area, but these will address Exchange Only lines (EO), and some rearrangement work. Part of Church Minshull falls into this category, particularly to the north of the parish. This is the more complex type of work that BT are undertaking across Cheshire.
EO lines are connected directly to the local telephone exchange, which can be upgraded with a fibre broadband connection, rather than passing through a green roadside cabinet. These lines are generally very close to the telephone exchange, or very remote from it.

Some EO lines may be fibre enabled as part of the Connecting Cheshire roll-out, with fibre direct to premises, or where an additional cabinet is built close to the exchange.

Unfortunately EO lines offer additional levels of complexity and cost. For this reason, many of the EO solutions are being planned for the latter part of the programme, from winter 2014 onwards.

Julian Cobley — Connecting Cheshire, will be attending the Parish Council meeting on 17th November to give a further update on the roll-out to Church Minshull.

Residents around the mini roundabout held a VE Day, 'close to the' STREET PARTY to celebrate the 75th anniversary.Popular songs of the day resounded off the houses as the sun shone, there was even dancing in the street...! Some dressed up, some decorated their driveways with Union Jacks and bunting, which gave a glimpse back to a time when social distancing wasn't an issue.Finger...
