Phase One Progress
By the end of February, over 160 new roadside cabinets were installed across Cheshire with many expected to be ready for service from the end of March, out of almost 500 expected during the life of the project. These new cabinets are the essential building blocks of the new 'root and branch' fibre networks and house the necessary fibre broadband equipment required for each locality. Combined with the 900 miles of fibre-optic cable that will be laid, they constitute a significant engineering challenge for BT, set against a very challenging timescale making the Cheshire roll-out the fastest currently underway in the UK.
Over 100 BT engineers and planners are involved in the Cheshire roll-out, plus a number of additional local sub-contractors. A key success of the project to date has been the partnership working between BT and the council's Planning and Highways departments to facilitate the road works and approvals required to deploy the fibre infrastructure speedily whilst minimising disruption to the road network and communities.
