Kidsgrove residents this afternoon can in some parts of the area start placing orders for super-fast fibre broadband.
The BT Open Reach website has this afternoon been updated to suggest that the Kidsgrove telephone exchange is now starting to take orders. This is a major change from the previous status which informed Kidsgrove residents that no fixed date had been set. This also coincided with reports that BT was suggesting anything from "end of 2013" to "March 2014".
Kidsgrove residents will need to check if their cabinet has been enabled yet, as it appears that cabinets are brought "live" on an individual basis.
