Here is the latest from Openreach on our phone lines and broadband :
"I've been escalating this case with our contractors who'll be carrying out the pole replacement. Openreach doesn't have any pole teams working in this region at all, so all pole work is done through our partner, Telent.
"There is a national shortage of pole teams at the moment which means all pole jobs are being delayed. I can assure you that this work does have maximum priority, but there are also other pole jobs that too have that highest level of priority, we are working through them as quickly as we possibly can. I have made the permitting team aware of your contact with the local council and that they're looking out for when we get the permit submitted. The pole team does need to carry out their own safety survey first though and it's this we're just waiting on at the moment.

In order to keep disruption down to a minimum, we are looking at being off-site by 2:30pm. I have asked if the streetworks team is able to reflect this in the permit information that is displayed on one.network.
