8 vans and lots of activity up in Beamish outside Peggy's Wicket today, looks like they are still connecting previously installed CBT's to the splitters and adding CBT's where there is a new pole.

I've started to plot where the service is live in the local area, cross checked with postcodes and the wholesale checker and will send the info to Andrew at TB so he can update their map. There seems to be a complete lack of publicity otherwise.

The ThinkBroadband map has been updated with the info I provided.

Almost all properties in No Place and West Pelton can now place an order.

Grange Villa (Stone Row is live), Pelton (lots of live postcodes), High Handenhold (live in 2 streets around the exchange), Beamish (live around Station Cottages) and Newfield (Hares Buildings and Oak Terrace are live) currently have spotty availability but the hardware is largely deployed and being commissioned - lots of properties will go live in large chunks pretty soon I think.

There are outstanding works to finish deployment in Grange Villa and Pelton Lane Ends (Beamish Court is live).

So far there have been no sign of works to reach properties at the top of Beamish near the Shepherd & Shepherdess or Hammer Square Bank, Cranberry Bog Road, Pockerley, Riding Farm, Stoney Lane, High Urpeth and I suspect these will be pushed into 2022 or beyond, maybe even fall under BDUK which we are currently awaiting the findings of the last OMR which are due to be published by the end of Summer (!)

As expected my PON was high costed out of the current rollout due to the potential cost of civils and anticipated road closures. The existing route being down a country lane with silted ducts, closures would be the only safe way to work.

We do have a glimmer of hope, having suggested an alternate route this is going to be resurveyed to see if there is capacity to extend the network from the top of Stoney Lane and get to us from that direction, and as it would be much less disruptive and hopefully cheaper it could still happen.

Keeping everything crossed.

Our PON and the suggested alternate route has been resurveyed by the Chief Engineers team this week and is now with costing to see if the numbers add up.

Elsewhere around the exchange area a few additional poles have been put in and some street works are outstanding in the next few weeks to enable the already deployed CBTís to be lit and commissioned.

Thank you for the update.

Hopefully the result (from the bean-counters) will be positive.  :fingers:

So another surveyor was out yesterday and walked the road, should get an update no later than next Friday.

Also this week, there are OR advanced closure notices for next March on Cranberry Bog Road which is a more difficult deployment than our PON and only has circa 7 properties plus a riding school and small holiday park. Odd decision if the Project Manager has chosen to build this PON ahead of ours, but thatís all part of the mystery.

Oh and the detailed Durham roadworks site is now defunct, just goes to an IIS Windows instance, which is a shame. They are all in on one.network now.

Still living in hope of fttp, will have to take another 12 month contract for 16/0.5 fttc this month or suck up out of contract costs and see what happens.
