As can be seen from Ian Sneap’s comment on a previous post here, W3Z are extending their wireless broadband service to Parwich village. They are installing an additional relay on a private house in Creamery Lane which means over 85% of Parwich will be able to utilise their service. Click here to visit the W3Z website.
(With BT having resolved the capacity issues in the Parwich exchange, their plans to provide later this year a super fast fibre optic connection, and with the W3Z super fast wireless option open to more in the next week, hopefully things can only get better.)

BT have resolved the capacity issues at the Parwich exchange and are now connecting new customers to broadband. (I was connected this lunch time.) Also for those not wanting to rely on phone lines W3Z are currently extending their coverage of our area so more people will be able to get a signal.

Apologies for hijacking the blog for a personal rant about BT’s appalling customer service.

I made my arrangements for my recent move on the basis of BT’s advice and commitments on ensuring no gap in my broadband provision. Some 15+ hours of phone calls later, after some eight assured connection dates between the 30th of March and the 17th of April, some five agents and managers failing to ring back when they promised, never speaking to the same person twice, conflicting and inconsistent explanations of what the problem is, repeatedly being cut off when placed on hold and over two weeks of no broadband, I was told yesterday that because of capacity problems in the exchange BT are unable to connect any new Broadband customers in the Parwich exchange before 31st of July 2015.
