Today came the announcement from British Telecom (BT) that even though the fibre optic cable has now been installed in the Hastings area, there is no clear date as to when houses and businesses in the sea-side town will actually have access to the service.

Because of an onslaught of customers constantly calling to be updated about when Superfast Broadband will be available in their area. BT have officially offered a blanket statement that says, the deadline is 2016 for all areas, and will not give out specifics as to when each individual areas Superfast Broadband will go online, in a hope to quell the uprising.

BT has declined to offer any more information on the subject.
