Thanks to land owners in the Coln St Aldwyn area we've been able to access power cables on private land that we can use to connect the last cabinet that we're upgrading in the area. This has helped us to avoid causing disruption in the area by digging up roads. Thanks to all members of the public who are helping us in this way. 

4 days ago:

We've now finished surveying and planning in the Clifford, Crucorney, Gladestry, Hay-on-Wye, Longtown Castle and Tintern exchange areas. Our engineers have started initial engineering work in these areas. Find out the latest for your exchange area on our Exchange Informtion page.

We've been working closely with the National Grid for gas in the Harewood End area. We've had to replace a few telegraph poles that are close to a high pressured gas supply, so obviously needed to make sure that this was done safely. We've now finished and are carrying on to rollout fibre in the area.

This week our engineers are working in and around Bridge Sollars, Carey, Harewood End, Moreton in Marsh, Ross on Wye, Stonehouse and Symonds Yat. 

1 week ago: Notice for residents of Symonds Yat

We'll be closing part of the B4164 between Monday 13th April and Friday 18th April so that we can connect a new fibre broadband cabinet in the area. We need to dig up the road and route electric cables to the cabinet. This will be in the Ferrie Lane / Meeks Well Lane area

We're sorry this may cause some disruption, but we need to do this work so we can bring fibre broadband to the local area. An emergency contact number is available for any enquiries related to these works which is 0800 526015.

Once we've delivered fibre to an area you won’t automatically be upgraded, you'll need to contact a broadband provider to upgrade your broadband package. Fastershire Buzz shows you how to upgrade to fibre broadband. 

2 weeks ago:

The majority of work in area 5 was finished by 31st December 2014. We've finished the rollout of fibre broadband in the Andoversford, Cirencester, Cricklade, Fairford, Guiting Power, Kemble, Lechlade, North Cerney, Northleach, South Cerney and Southrop exchange areas. Work is likely to carry into June in the Coln St Aldwyn and Bourton on the Water areas.

7,922 properties can now upgrade to faster broadband speeds in Area 1, including Carey, Gorsley, Lea, Llangarron, Much Marcle, Ross on Wye, Symonds Yat and Upton Bishop. The rollout in Area 1 has been extremely challenging and we’re still working across the area. We now expect the fibre roll out of fibre broadband in  Area 1 to be completed by the end of September 2015.

Fed up with your inbox being filled with spam. Fastershire Buzz has a quick and easy tip that could help you.  

3 weeks ago:

We've been dealing with significant challenges getting some of the new cabinets in the Lea area connected to power. We're working with  Western Power to get them connected, but to do this we're having to close roads to lay underground duct for the power cable to run through. We're working to do this with as little disruption as possible.  

3 weeks ago:

We're dealing with major blockages in the underground duct running from Hereford exchange out to the Burley Gate area. As well as impacting work in and around Burley Gate, this is going to have a knock on effect to the delivery of fibre to the Bromyard and Sutton St Nicholas areas, as they are connected to the same fibre route.  

How are we doing?
44,089 faster homes and businesses
385.47 Kms fibre laid
45 exchange areas live
206 cabinets live

What's next for Fastershire...

Our current rollout aims to deliver 90% fibre coverage and ends at the end of 2015 in Gloucestershire and 2016 in Herefordshire. But future phases will extend that coverage even further...
