At last the long wait is over! Broadband cabinet 12 in Kingswells has been switched on! This cabinet serves Corse Avenue, Corse Gardens, Corse Wynd, Migvie Gardens, Migvie Lea, Migvie Avenue, Migvie Grove, Midmar Park, Midmar Walk, Midmar Crescent, Midmar View, Bethlin Mews and Cromar Gardens, offering high speed connections to a potential further 277 properties.
Areas served by cabinets 11 and 13 have been live for several months. No information is currently available on cabinets 19, 20, 21 and 22 as to when we can expect them to give live. In fact no indication has been given as to which cabinet will be upgraded next.
Residents living in Kingswood Avenue, Kingswood Path, Kingswood Walk, Kingswood Grove, Fairley Road, Edmond Gardens, Whiterashes and part of Derbeth Grange are directly connected to the Westhill Exchange rather than through street cabinets. It is currently unknown if or when these streets will be connected.
Local councillor Steve Delaney said, “I will continue to update this website with information as I manage to suss it out, but getting reliable information on the Kingswells superfast broadband programme from official channels is absolutely impossible. The whole programme appears to be being guarded with a secrecy rivalling that of North Korea!”
“This failure to communicate with the public is absolutely disgraceful in what is allegedly an open, transparent democracy. Digital Scotland and BT Openreach appear to be needlessly withholding information from us or they simply don’t have a planned programme of works and are making it up as they go. Either way, it’s totally unacceptable as they appear to be accountable to nobody.”
