Re: 1gig Rollout getting faster

They seem to do "releases" of areas on Mondays, so there are 13 mondays left in 2021 if they are to meet their recently restated target....

A load more releases today, including Colchester. Anyone know if Colchester is relevant to Ipswich at all? It's only down the road.

Re: 1gig Rollout getting faster

Had an email yesterday from VM:

"We’re carrying out essential works to modernise and future-proof our network in your area on Mon 11 Oct. This should improve your connection so you can carry on enjoying the things you love most. "

Now while I'd consider 'enjoying the things you love most' to be unlimited Brandy served by naked 20 year old supermodels while I watch re-runs of Kelly's Heroes, I guess it's more likely to be something to do with this roll out

It was just never really designed for public use and might not scale well.
It was working but recently it just gives a bad gateway error. Is it gone for good? I was hoping it was just temporary.

Sorry, I didn't have it on autostart, back now.

However, https://bidb.msh100.uk/ is a newer, better implementation.

Colchester is the main Headend, Ipswich is fed in part from Colchester

Thanks, that's hopeful, maybe soon to come here as it did in WSM a little after Bristol.

You say in part, where else is Ipswich fed from?

Re: 1gig Rollout getting faster

Ipswich has its own hubsite. As sollp says, the main headend is Colchester.

aah ok, well Colchester being upgraded bodes well then, I guess we couldn't possibly be before Colchester.

Where is the hubsite in Ipswich? Is it that big building on Russel Road?
