After six years and two collapsed contracts, CDS has connected
30 properties in Northleigh’s surrounds, installed by
Openreach under the GVS scheme. But 91 properties remain
unconnected. CDS has awarded a new contract to Airband, blocking
GVS funding of about £115,000 for Openreach to finish its
work. Airband would install new, unnecessary fibre, paralleling the
new existing 12 km of fibre, with a further delay of three years,
i.e. a waste of both taxpayers’ money and time.
The obvious technical, economic, and low-risk solution is for Openreach to complete its network. The cost of connecting just 91 property owners with maybe 12 km of cable will distract Airband from more productive work elsewhere in its scope.
