  1. is fibre optic really on its way because its taking a long time ,I’ve dumped BT and changed to Vodafone ,still having poor broadband but paying less .

  2. Hi – i’ve just reserved a property in the Parc derwen estate. Right next to the cae hendre marketing suite (address 5a heol straddling). What is the broadband like in this location? Anybody know the download speed? If the broadband is poor i’m thinking it may be a deal breaker for me.

    1. Hello,
      Not sure what the speeds are unfortunately,
      however you can register interest in having fibre optic at your cabinet.
      We have reserved 5C and our cabinet is 162
      I am assuming yours should be the same
      Hope this helps!

  3. Cabinet is full now with only a small amount of people being able to get fibre. Waited all year. Now I’ve been told I’ll have to wait for someone to move do I can get an open slot .
    It’s a complete joke. I feel so wronged by BT .
    Treating us like starving and people throwing us a handful of grain .
    It’s pathetic
