As previously mentioned earlier this year, BT Openreach have been working at the entrance to Middlemore to bring high speed Fibre to Middlemore, many of you have probably spotted the new green cabinet on the verge between the two roundabouts.
This work has now been completed and many Middlemore residents can now order Fibre broadband from their ISP of choice. This does means you don’t need to use BT, there are many ISP’s available that can offer you a Fibre service, the biggest suppliers appear to be BT, Plus.Net, Sky, Talk Talk, Orange – a google will show you a list of many suppliers.
Unfortunately, as previously highlighted, it seems that the “newer” part of Middlemore is not connected to the green cabinet at the entrance to the estate but to a different one further into the estate and thus, are still unable to receive fibre. We have asked BT for a date when they will be upgrading the rest of Middlemore to fibre however as yet no date has been announced.
To check if you can now order fibre, enter your phone number into the checker if it has a line in the results that says FTTC and a speed somewhere between 20Mb and 80Mb your can order a high speed connection if you so wish.
