Be on you guard for phone calls purporting to be from 'BT Security Department' claiming that your router is reporting high number of errors. These are SCAM calls by criminals and are a variant of the previous Microsoft or Windows Security scam. If you receive one of these calls, terminate the call immediately or alternatively just say SCAM in a loud voice and ring off - they will soon get the message!
Better Broadband for Suffolk - Roll out in our area
UPDATE: The following message was received from the BB4S Programme Manager on 10 August 2016;
'We are currently awaiting a re-model of the deployment plan from BT, having now completed all the necessary State Aid process to permit ourselves to spend the clawed back funding from BT, which we received due to high take up in Suffolk.
We expect this plan to be dramatically different to the one which is currently contracted, both due to the incremental funding envelope, and also due to improvements within Openreach in terms of technology and deployment / engineering techniques.
This plan should be with us in the early Autumn, and I suggest we meet shortly afterwards when we can share the “new” plan.'
