Upgrade of TV Network + Super Fast Internet

From the BEO:

Dear Residents
On 20th November 2013 a contract was agreed between the City and Vision Fibre Media for a fully funded upgrade of the existing television system to a fibre optic system.

The new system will provide the same services as the existing Integrated Reception System (IRS). However residents will have the opportunity to take out additional services such as superfast broadband.

A meeting is due to take place on 11th December 2013 with Vision Fibre Media to discuss the installation and agree a project plan.   Once agreed, residents will be notified and a copy of the project will be sent out via the email broadcast and will be posted on the notice boards.  In the New Year the contractor will begin installing a new fibre back-bone in the tunnel areas alongside the existing IRS back-bone. This will be followed by installation of new fibre to each block, one at a time.

Further information will be in the December edition of Barbicanews.

With regards

Barbican Estate Office
