Ystradowen Village by Richard Skinner


Village Broadband

The latest comment from BT is as follows:

"We have had to revise the plans to cater for the new estate, we will still be deploying FTTP to most of the village and we are still hoping this will be done before Christmas, for the estate and some of the houses in the village we have reached agreement with Bellway to install an FTTC cabinet and the plans have gone through and we are hoping that this will be installed about Feb time."

Further comments from Jane Hutt AM are as follows:

"Please see below, all of the properties will be served by a superfast connection, the black boxes with RED writing will be those served with FTTP. The Purple boxes with BLACK writing will be those served by the new FTTC cabinet which will also feed the properties on the new estate. These are the various connection points that the customer will connect to once they place an order.

The new FTTC cabinet is later in the programme as it is additional work outside the Superfast Cymru programme so it will not potentially be done in the same timeframe as the FTTP installation which is due by February.

Properties will be served by a superfast connection
