Phase 1 Project Update
As of 4pm on the 14th March North Skye Broadband was advised by HIE Community Broadband Scotland (CBS) that as a result of recent analysis by BT they are now in a position to clarify and confirm, with certainty, the post code areas in our phase 1 project footprint. These areas are the Glendale, Waternish and Struan exchange areas. We have updated our postcode map which now shows these areas in purple.
CBS can only support projects which operate where the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) project does not plan to deliver a fibre presence. BT, as the supplier to this contract, is currently investigating ways of extending its coverage. Although we have not yet been made aware of exactly where BT will go we know that 100% of the premises will still not be reached and the areas of Glendale, Waternish and Struan will definitely not be reached.
As the exact coverage of DSSB becomes clear any areas (post codes, or partial post codes) not covered can be added to the North Skye Broadband project area and CBS will continue to provide support to facilitate connection of these additional areas to the North Skye Broadband network.
We are keen to accept registration of interest from all areas seeking to benefit from our community led project (even if you are currently outside our initial project area) and we look forward to coming to your communities over the coming weeks to discuss our project.
