More Fibre Connections in the Parish

I’ve not got a map for this one – only a notification that fibre broadband is available in my area. Putting two and two together, it looks as if the Spark Bridge cabinet is now enabled and this seems correct when I test a few phone numbers on the BT Openreach site – which you can reach via the Connecting Cumbria site (link on the previous blog).
So, if you live in the Sparkbridge area or in the LA12 8HE or 8HF postcode areas, it’s likely that you can now get a much better connection. Check it out and then contact your ISP. Please let me know what speeds are available to you and how you get on with your new fibre connection when you get it.
I use the word ‘likely’ as there are exceptions within a postcode – unfortunately I’m one of them!!
