Are the rumours of BT Infinity by December true?

Well they might be if you live in Woodnewton!

The rumours circulating that Kings Cliffe is going to get BT FTTC (Infinity) in December came from the BT “When and Where?” website where, if you type in a Cliffe postcode, it’ll happily tell you that our exchange is “Coming Soon” and the detailed PDF/XLS says “Kings Cliffe Available December 2014”.

This is not correct for Kings Cliffe or Apethorpe.

Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) have confirmed that this relates only to the single NCC/BDUK funded FTTC (Infinity) cabinet being installed in Woodnewton that happens to be on the Kings Cliffe exchange. The BT website isn’t smart enough to know the difference between Woodnewton and Kings Cliffe :(

NCC have written to the Parish Council to confirm this and squash any false hopes or rumours about BT installing any updated broadband in our village.

Gigaclear remains our only foreseeable chance of lifting Kings Cliffe & Apethorpe from the bottom of the pile to the top.

As the leaflet said: There is (still) no Plan B.
