Wakefield FTTP
« on: January 13, 2022, 12:10:55 PM »

Remember a post or two on here about Wakefield so here's the latest.

CityFibre break ground in Flanshaw next month, then are making a beeline down Broadway with spurs going down side roads through Lupset to provide FTTP to homes and businesses not on the new ring route.
Virgin Media O2 are overbuilding the cable network with FTTP in Eastmoor.
Openreach are all over having suddenly taking more of an interest in the city itself in the past couple of weeks after Wakefield Council announced a deal with CityFibre in December.

Pure coincidence I'm sure.  ;)

Looks like a bit of competition is working wonders!

I wish it looked like that round here, the jobs are REALLY spread out and seem to be moving further away from me again. :(

Annoyingly my bit of the road has been recently made a bus route and I fear that may have delayed my bit due to the extra logistical challenges.

Though all the properties from the aggregation node along the ducting on that side of the road are also DIG to maisonettes which possibly dropped its priority, even though that duct also junctions across to the houses and my DP on the other side.
