Dear Sir, As you may know, I have been campaigning for more than a year to get superfast broadband for the residents of Ryder Court and St Andrews Court. Twice I thought we had won … only to find that there was a problem and there were still months to wait.  BT put in the cabling before Christmas, but until recently there were no spare ports in Cabinet 23 for anybody to connect to it. Last month, however, BT installed a side-cabinet to expand the number of ports, and I have been informed that “the capacity issues at Cabinet 23 have been resolved, and Superfast Broadband is now available for local residents” in the Rope Moor Way area. So thank you to BT, and particularly to Digital Durham, whose mandate is to bring superfast broadband to the whole of County Durham, and who have put up with me phoning them every fortnight with immense patience! Please note that you do not get Superfast Broadband automatically – you have to register for it with your provider, and you may have to pay extra for it.  If you have any questions, contact uk. This is not the end, of course. There are a few residents of Ryder Court – dubbed the ‘Forgotten Fibre Fourteen’ – who still do not have superfast broadband. They will be connected during Digital Durham’s Phase 2. I hope that we will not have to wait a further year-plus to see them connected, but I will be pestering Digital Durham about it on a regular basis. Cllr John D Clare (Aycliffe North & Middridge)
