Connecting Shropshire broadband update – 174 cabinets now live!
Ever since the first roadside cabinet went live in December 2013, Connecting Shropshire has been working hard to install fibre broadband. To date, 174 new roadside cabinets have been installed and are live in 43 exchange areas putting over 30,000 premises within reach of the new fibre broadband network.
To see whether you have access to fibre broadband, use the checker at: http://connectingshropshire.co.uk/when-and-where/
The map allows you to get up-to-date information about the status of your exchange area. The availability checker enables you to enter their postcode or telephone number to find out your exchange area, whether or not fibre broadband is available and estimated dates for availability. For a list of all our live cabinets, see: http://connectingshropshire.co.uk/live-cabinets/
To connect to fibre broadband, people need to contact their chosen internet service provider to upgrade their broadband package, the broadband speeds won’t increase automatically.
Not all premises in an exchange area will get access to fibre broadband and not all premises served by a fibre cabinet will necessarily get access to faster broadband.
