According to the BT Openreach website, superfast broadband is now also available in Kingsway, South Street, Mill Street, East Street, the western half of North Street (from the junior school to the junction with Duke Street), Hugh Squier Avenue, Deans Park, West Street, and the Artizans Dwellings.
BT contractors had the pavement up in Poltimore Road last week to enable duct to be laid. The duct is there so that a fibre optic cable can be laid from the cabinet in Poltimore Road all the way to the telephone exchange.
Hopefully the cabinet in Poltimore Road will thus go ‘live’ quite quickly. Once it does go live, Poltimore Road, Poltimore Close and Aclands should all be able to order superfast broadband.
