Hanley Castle Community Broadband Project (Apr 2020)

Hanley Castle Broadband update.

You may have noticed the Hanley Castle fibre broadband has not actually turned up yet. And you may not be surprised to hear the reason is Covid-19.

We had all our vouchers approved and the funding secured, with Openreach contractors actively installing fibre round the village. I’m reasonably certain this bit is now complete.

Trouble is Openreach, not unreasonably, have instructed their engineers to carry on with outside installation work but not to enter people’s properties for the time being.

The last stage – the connection between the road and the properties – was about to happen when the pandemic hit so it appears that, like so much, the actual arrival of fibre broadband will have to wait for Covid to subside.
