• Boost for broadband in Ottery, West Hill and Tipton St John

    4th September 2013 | News | Claire
  • The boxes will do not require planning consent, are set to appear at the following locations:

    Near Furzebrook, Ottery St Mary

    Ridgeway, Ottery St Mary

    Canaan Way, Ottery St Mary

    Thorne Farm Way, Ottery St Mary

    West Hill Road, near Eastfield, West Hill

    Near the war memorial, West Hill Road

    Towards the bottom of West Hill Road, West Hill

    Near the Golden Lion pub, Tipton St John

    The proportions of the boxes are – height 1600mm x length 1200mm x depth 450mm

    The letter to EDDC planners from BT Openreach’s contractors, the Harlequin Group, states:  “As part of Openreach’s ongoing proposal to expand broadband accessibility this is a notification of our intention to install fixed-line broadband electronic communications apparatus pursuant to the Electronic Communications Code Regulations (2003)…”

    Timescale of the installation and any resulting improvement in broadband speed is as yet unclear, but I have enquired and hope to confirm this soon.
