Go on, eat your fibre, new build contractors. It's free! OpenReach lowers limit for free FTTP connections

An example of that would be the Devon village of Templeton, where speeds hover well below 1 megabit. In 2017, villagers burned an effigy of an OpenReach van in protest about the business failing to deliver superfast broadband.

Openreach said they couldn't do what DCC wanted for the price DCC was able to pay. A competitor stepped in saying they could do it. It now turns out that the competitor had misjudged the work required and it can no longer do what it promised either.

I note that the villagers haven't burnt an effigy of a Gigaclear van yet. They probably still blame openreach :-/

But never mind, DCC are soldiering bravely on.
