This is the final version of our response as submitted to the DCMS/BDUK.
Draft response to the DCMS Request For Information that is part of the public review process (19th August 2021 to 20th September 2021) for Project Gigabit - Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
This is a copy of a letter (with recipient identity removed) sent to residents this week (14th June 2021) in Fairview/Shepherds Down, Alresford, notifying them of a forthcoming change from copper lines used to deliver telephone services to VoIP via the BT Smart Bub 2 router.
The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is to be switched off in 2025 and this is good advance indicator of how they are going about the work.
This is the Final Offer from Openreach for the South East Alresford Scheme

‘Project Gigabit’ is the government’s national mission to deliver lightning-fast, reliable broadband for everyone in the UK.
It is a mission championed by the Prime Minister, and one we share with industry, regulators, local councils, consumer groups and fellow citizens. We know the shift to gigabit-capable broadband will deliver a huge leap forward for this country - opening up infinite possibilities for business, technology, healthcare, education and more.
