DIY FTTH in Ashby de la Launde, Lincolnshire

Further to my recent post on possible last mile providers that could utilise the backhaul schools' broadband infrastructure offers, TechEye have an interesting article about Ashby de la Launde, a village in Lincolnshire:
"Residents of the nearly 60 homes and three businesses in Ashby de la Launde in Lincolnshire have begun building the FTTH network which will deliver speeds of up to 100Mb/s in the region. The project is privately funded and will be community owned, with support from a number of companies, including community interest firm NextGenUs UK CIC and AFL Telecommunications, a subsidiary of Japanese firm Fujikura."
The project is well underway and should be complete by the end of September. Further related reports here, here and here, also here and more on FibreStream's blog here.
