We have been informed by BT that they have recently upgraded Cabinet 8 on the Woolhampton Exchange which is located within your parish. This increased the capacity by an additional 97 spaces. Some residents/businesses may be registered on the waiting list and presumably be contacted by their ISP. However, others may have been put off / frustrated and be in the dark about the recent upgrade.
If you have any communications channels that will help inform the residents/businesses in the Padworth Parish Council community area (such as social media, parish magazine, parish website, notice boards, community groups/meetings etc.) then this will help raise awareness to anyone who’s property is served by this cabinet and is currently unable to get a access to superfast broadband.
Residents/businesses can check which cabinet their property comes under by using BT’s wholesale checker website https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html and then selecting an Internet Service Provider (ISP) of their choice from the list on the BT Openreach’s website https://www.homeandwork.openreach.co.uk/when-can-i-get-fibre.aspx.
