Wow this hurts.

Coventry, Derby, Nottingham, Peterborough.  All in plans they surround Leicester but no Leicester.

I'm wondering if the Aberdeen one will cover Aberdeenshire as I'm about 8 miles from the centre.

Well, they're still working through all the bigger areas of the country.

I think all three major cities in Wales have FTTP now though, so I'm waiting for them to start going through the smaller areas. I'm close to Bridgend, but not on the Bridgend exchange, so will need to wait for it to filter out to the outlier exchanges from there.

Wow thats a good site. The roadworks for England now only goes to 2 weeks, unless we pay a fee.

It is good to hear that progress is picking up speed.

That's not the case. You have to register and sign in, but there's no fee to pay.
