I saw that and thought it odd, I think they may get a permit quicker by stating customer out of service, so perhaps they are bending the rules a bit to speed things up.

Passing off planned works as urgent/emergency works is frowned upon. This particular permit did raise a question today.

But we are without service from VM  ;D ;) ;)

We'll be teleporting, before you guys get VM !!!  ;)

We'll be travelling at light speed long before BTor are sending light down a fibre to my house  :P Beam me up Scotty...then engage the warp drives.

No, unfortunately nothing. I did send CLOKent  a PM a few weeks ago but have heard nothing. So I'm as much in the dark as you, hopefully it will be soon.

PS. Hub cabinet was installed around 20 January,  which was 8 weeks ago.

You can't, but I drove past it on the 26 January and it was installed then but wasn't a week or two before, now I am presuming the cabinet on the corner of Greenfields Road & Pysons Road will serve Clements Road.

Thanks for the heads up .... been away for 10 days which is why I had not replied.

@Hornet156, be interesting to hear how you get on, might give that a go myself, although it's very easy to get from the path into my house, as long as they are happy using what I've installed.
@Broadstairs, I thought you must off been away, hope you had a nice break.
