Service Status 6/8/19

An indirect lightening strike on Monday afternoon caused a loss of power to Daviot, resulting in a service failure for those customers East of Daviot. The power issue was resolved at 9am on 6/8/19.

Whilst we have battery back-ups, they ultimately ran flat before we were able to resolve the power issue.

We apologise for the loss of service to those affected.

Network Live!

We are pleased to confirm that the network is now live, and we’ve connected the first customers!

Due to the intitial volume of orders, we expect to connect people within 28 days of ordering. Once we have cleared the intial  back-log, we would expect installations to be completed within 2 weeks.

Most people should be able to receive a service now, however some properties may require a little extra work. A survey will be completed with each new order.

Thank you for all your patience and support, and we look forward to bringing high-speed broadband to you very soon!

Status Update – 20/3/19

We are pleased to report that the network build is progressing very well, with 12 of 16 masts now erected. The remaining 4 masts will be completed by the end of next week. Final cabling and radio installations will take place in early April. We expect to start taking orders in around 2 weeks time. Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to bring super-fast services to Strathnairn very soon!

Here is an example of the lattice style masts we’re using. This one sits up above Achnabat.
