We have some information provided by a Barrowden resident with an update directly from the OpenReach engineers working on the phone lines:
“I’ve been to see the Openreach engineers working at the end of Morcott Road this morning and thought I would share with you what they told me by way of an update.
There is positive news in that they are starting to make connections but it’s a long and painstaking process. They can’t tell which phone numbers are in various core cables but are working through making them all live, consequently phone numbers will start to come on stream from now but completion of the work will take a number of days.
Although they couldn’t give me an end date for the work, they did confirm the job is still considered urgent and they will continue to work on it over the weekend.
It feels as if we are making progress.”
