A fresh look at the FTTP/FTTH progress map on the openreach.com website 
indicates that many areas previously shown as complete are now listed as still 
being connected, and some not expected to be completed until over a year after 
the analogue copper telephone system was due to be switched off. Is there a 
shortage of manpower, fibre, or hardware? Perhaps just over optimistic 
politicians? My house is in a small line of terrace blocks sandwiched between 
a major road and a cemetery within one of the areas not listed at all, while 
communityfibre.co.uk tell me that they do plan to provide FTTH, but not any 
time soon. Much of their local installation work is being done by Kelly 
Communications, who are also major contractors for Openreach.
