Parts of the information below has been superseded and is no longer valid. Please check the most recent updates.

Following on from the April Update, I have received an email from the Welsh Government stating that the fibre Broadband service is estimated to be ready to order from September/October 2017.

I am still awaiting confirmation from the BT Group and Openreach.

You may have noticed that new equipment has been installed on poles throughout the village. These will eventually allow a fibre cable to be installed from this new infrastructure and into your property. Although these works seem to be coming to an end, there are still a few outstanding bits of ground works that need to be done along with the fibre splicing.

Update 25/07/2017: After speaking to the BNE sub contractors, there is still quite a lot of work that needs to be done (approx a month's worth). The current delay was partially due to shortage and issues ordering the blown fibre splitter nodes and fibre distribution points.

Another update will be circulated once more information becomes available.
