Ultra-Fast Broadband for Michaelston-y-Fedw is GO!
Michaelston y Fedw Internet CIC, a not for profit Community Interest Company, was incorporated in October 2017 wholly for the purpose of installing 1Gbs Fibre To The Premises ‘FTTP’ to residents and businesses in and around Michaelston y Fedw.
Meetings, discussions and debates started back in August 2017, the real work began on this community broadband scheme on 21st February 2018 with the objective of achieving first connections in early May and completion of all 160+ connections by late autumn.
As a community project, contractors will be employed for some of the work. Teams of volunteers from the community will be utilised in activities such as digging chambers, laying out of ducting, fitting out The Hub, fusion and splicing of fibres, router installations, and as many tasks as possible in a bid to keep overall costs to a minimum. This will enable every connection to be provided with the aid of ABC and UVC Broadband Grants from The Welsh Government with no additional cost to the residents.
Below is a map showing the planned routing for the cables.
