We're adding extra capacity in the underground ducts leading from the Llangarron exchange, so that we can continue to lay fibre in the area, and so that we’ve got the capacity to add more in the future if it's needed.
We've now found several points in the underground duct along Haw Street and Old Town in Wotton Under Edge where we need to clear blockages or pump out silt. There's also a couple of sections where we need to replace damaged duct. As the roads are pretty narrow, and there's one way systems in the area, we're looking at the best way to do this work without as little impact on local traffic as possible.
The first cabinet has gone live in the Blakeney area. Find out here if fibre broadband if available on your line.

We've now cleared the blockages in the the underground duct running from Hereford exchange out to the Burley Gate area and have started laying fibre underground.
