I actually reached out to YouFibre: -

I've just checked some details with our build team, and at present your address is still in the planning stages. Which means that unfortunately I can't give a clear answer as to whether or not we will be expanding into your address after the work is completed in Bridgend. I'm sure you probably know but there are lots of moving parts in laying the network and while Netomnia are still planning their roll out it could be a variable amount of time before the work is completed.
 
What I would suggest however is if you have registered your interest on the website, we will notify you once we are at the actual building stage in the area. At which point we can give a much clearer idea of when you will be ready to place an order.
 
Sorry as this is probably not what you wanted to hear but rest assured we are certainly interested in getting you ready for service as soon as possible.


Keep on waiting then

So, tracking bidb.uk - Netomnia (YouFibre) have been gradually moving north through Bridgend with roadworks.

On the road behind my house: -

install FW6 chamber in footway, linking ducts to existing BT chamber

And this there are a few of these heading towards the exchange.

I take it this is good news? :)

And this morning whilst out shopping spotted a Netomnia van about half a mile or so from where I live. That would definitely be on the same exchange as me - so yes looks like itís on the way.

An update on FTTP progress on the Maesteg exchange. Lots of digging and duct laying, a couple of contractors fixed a 'pole bend' on the pole outside my house just this afternoon. I've also seen a few CBT's going up on poles.
One strange thing I have noticed, looking at bidb.uk , there is lots of activity planned for Llangynwyd (where I am), Cwmfelin, Garth and Maesteg itself, but nothing north of Maesteg.
This is odd as Nantyffyllon and Caerau are on the Maesteg exchange. Is it possible that the area south of Maesteg will have FTTP available and enabled first or will there be a delay while the area north of the town gets fibred up?

Very rare for them to hold up 1 area going live to wait on another area going live, unless both areas are waiting on something further upstream.

Under normal circumstances the area to the South would go live 1st.

It all depends on capacity of existing spine-fibres, as to how the roll-out plan will be put in place, and what is lit first ?.

OR would normally build from the Exchange outwards, so the PON's closest to the Exchange on (we'll call it 'Spine A') would be lit first, followed by the rest of the PON's on 'Spine A' moving outwards.
Whilst this is occurring, civils and cabling/splicing work would be in play pulling in Spine B, Spine C ... etc etc.

I can see that a large number of PON's have been manually surveyed around the middle of the Maesteg area ... and a large number of surveys created, but yet to be manually surveyed around the outer regions .... including Nantyffyllon and Caerau.
