Happy New Year Stephen,

I trust you had a good Christmas break.

I was wondering whether you are able to release more information about the proposed new fibre cabinet on Main Street (to upgrade Pillar 3/2 outside the Post Office)?

In your last email to me you mentioned that: 'The job is currently with BT's modelling team for the fine detail to be added...'. You also said that: 'BT has given a date of 31st March 2016, but they have said that they will do everything possible to complete before then.'

I am assuming that by now, BT must have this programmed into their work schedule sometime during the next 3 months… and it would be good to know if we now have a firm installation date!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Good Morning Geoff,

A Happy New Year to you too and thanks, yes, Xmas was good and I trust it was for you too.
The job has been signed off and planning completed. There are no obvious issues that will delay installation.

At this point, BT are sticking with a completion date of 31st March, but now it is in their work stack, I am expecting a more concrete date within the next 2 weeks. As soon as I get it, I will let you know.
