Update on Project Gigabit

By Parish Clerk Astley Parish Council

Thursday, 2 May 2024


Astley Parish Council Contributor


Today we have received the following update from Freedom Fibre:

"Following your previous communications, we designated Upper Astley as ‘LOC', meaning that we paused all construction work. Regrettably, it has come to our attention that our engineering contractor continued the building process in error, installing two poles. We sincerely apologise for this oversight and any inconvenience it may have caused. Please be assured that we are taking corrective measures: the infrastructure will be removed swiftly, with completion expected within seven days. We are also conducting a thorough review of our project design to prevent such errors in the future.

I would also like to confirm that our discussions with utility providers about the possibility of using existing infrastructure are ongoing."
