October 2020 – We are very excited to announce that Ofcom has granted us power under section 106(3) of the Communications Act 2003 to apply the electronic communications code to our network expansion. This will enable faster deployments that can operate throughout the tightest of lockdowns to facilitate better broadband services and faster fault resolution. We have discovered throughout the lockdown, the ability to deploy new sites have been adversely affected and efforts to resolve issues made harder.

We are now able to plan and build a network combining fixed wireless access and full fibre throughout the communities we have been asked to serve. We will target all the areas on our pre-registration and will public updates through WestWiFi and WestFibre. The future now has some definitive clarity and we look forward to reveal our plans shortly.
