Broadband and Roadworks

City Fibre are currently laying the infrastructure for High Speed Broadband in Grantchester. Here are the key points:

1) The whole village will be connected

2) Their build will be in at least two phases – the first will take 4 weeks, the second will be later this quarter.

3) It will be circa 6 months before customers can order service

4) CityFibre isn’t an ISP, but (like Openreach) builds a network that others use. When we looked randomly elsewhere in Cambridge only Vodafone offered their service, but apparently there are many ISPs that do and they expect Sky to join them over the next few months.
