SUPERFAST BROADBAND UPDATE

Following a meeting on Tuesday evening, we can confirm that the contract has now been signed to upgrade the cabinet that serves Bovis Homes and Taylor Wimpey Homes customers on Kingsmere. This will now be jointly funded by both builders. The upgrade will occur within the next 12 months – hopefully sooner rather then later!

Additionally, David Wilson Homes have agreed to proportionally part fund the cabinet that serves their own and Bellway Homes customers. They are now re-approaching Bellway Homes to try and negotiate joint full funding of the cabinet.

The KRA would like to thank Bovis Homes, Taylor Wimpey Homes, David Wilson Homes, Countryside Properties, BT and Openreach who all sent representatives to the meeting.

The work will continue on this issue – a more detailed update will be provided at the KRA meeting on 29/1/15.
