Broadband Cabinet in Ferry Road has reached capacity!
Following reports of some residents not being able to get broadband, IV pursued this with Openreach as superfast broadband should be available for all Iwade residents. It transpires that the Ferry Road cabinet has reached its capacity of 288 connections and an additional cabinet is now required. Click on the image to go to our Broadband page and scroll down to the broadband map. If you are in the white area and are unable to currently get broadband that probably explains it. IV is on the case as are Openreach who have just been on the phone. Watch this space for more information as it becomes available.
