Update from Openreach on the Fibre Broadband installation for Llanwern Village:
I have been awaiting a cost for the installation for the supply of Fibre to Premises for the village (not new development). This has now been received and with the grants available, it is feasibly free. However, there has to be enough households that will subscribe to fibre broadband for a minimum 12mth period. The quote received still needs tweaking, but I estimate that from the 135 households in the village, approx 90 of them would need to subscribe. There is also a bit of legal stuff to cover, where the community would agree a contract with Openreach prior to the work commencing and the installation would take no longer than 12mths.
So there is some slow progress being made and there are still lots of questions. In the meantime I now need to gauge the level of interest and commitment for fibre broadband in the village.
Can I please ask that if you are potentially interested in getting fibre broadband that you email me or text me your name and address to:-
