Over 600 cabinet areas now live in time for Christmas

Connecting Cheshire has now reached over 92,000 premises with fibre and installed over 600 new cabinets in the 3 years since switching on its first cabinet in 2013. Amongst the latest cabinets to go live in time for Christmas was Pickmere 3 in Wincham which brings coverage off the Pickmere exchange to 1,300 premises. Former Chancellor George Osborne MP for Tatton cut the ribbon at the switch-on ceremony. He said: “I’ve been a huge supporter of getting high-speed broadband for my constituents. It allows people to work where they want and brings entertainment and knowledge to people and families at home. It’s no exaggeration to say that it is an essential part of modern life. This project is vital for the local, and indeed national, economy.”

Other cabinets to have gone live recently include Bollington 4 & 12, Bunbury 1 & 2, Chelford 7, Great Mollington 4, Ellesmere Port 41, 54 & 57, Marton Heath 5, Mickle Trafford 3, Middlewich 20, Mobberley 3, North Rode 4 & 5, Northwich 12, Pickmere 3, Warrington 11, 87 & 97, Widnes 80.
