Chwilog exchange hits BB trigger level! Posted Saturday, April 17, 2004 by penllyn
This afternoon at about 1.30, BT Wholesale Wales site was showing that the Chwilog exchange has hit the trigger levels for ADSL.
This exchange is the final one in Llyn to reach the trigger level, and could now be expecting ADSL no sooner than September. The Chwilog exchange covers the (01766) 810XXX area and includes Llangybi.

Congratulations go to Jim Boys who ran the campaign, and also to all the others involved. Also to the rest of the people over at Llangybi and Chwilog - you know who you are - well done.
This is the only exchange outside of the 01758 area that was involved with the group of campaigners and this triggering can now draw a line under our campaign that has seen us achieve all the targets that BT had set for the area.
Pwllheli exchange is already ADSL enabled, and all the others apart from Aberdaron have been given RFS dates before the end of June. Let's hope for an early RFS date for Chwilog!
The only exchange in the area without a trigger level is Rhiw, and is the only exchange with no local campaigner! According to BT the exchanges without triggers, should still fight to show that there is an interest in order that they be given either mini dslam's under the exchange activate scheme, or wireless coverage. Rhiw does have other more pressing infrastructure issues to address at present though.
Even though we have achieved our objectives in Llyn, neighbouring exchanges -Clynnog (that includes the community of Trefor) and Criccieth will now given whatever assistance we can offer to assist with their campaigns. We are now assisting many campaigners throughout Gwynedd through the focal point web site -

Aberdaron Gets 27/07/2005 RFS date! Posted Friday, April 9, 2004 by penllyn
Thats right..... 2005 (not a typo). Aberdaron exchange has been given a date of over a year away until they get Broadband. This may be bought forward by BT, or it may not, at least a date has been set!
Good things come to those that wait!!!!!!!!

We'll get on to BT to see why they need such a long time, and publish their comments here when we get them (hopefully this year).
