Update - Our Brown Muir mast is now operating normally on its backup power. We will be monitoring the site over the next 24-48 hours and aim to get back to normal power within that time frame.

Once again, apologies for any inconvenience.

Hi. Just wondering what's happening with the dish that was going up at Shalloch Farm, Mulben. We are all keen to get your Wi-Fi service here.

The maiden voyage of our new WiFi vehicle. Wish we had one of these from the start πŸ˜€

We are planning permanent power at our brownmuir mast. Solar power has served us well but as we progress and expand we strive for something more robust, the sun has been kind to us this summer but we can't be so sure in these upcoming shorter winter months!

Good progress has been made at Balnellan farm, our brackets are up with help from the lads at Balnellan and electrics being installed by a local Mulben resident. We will be wiring, configuring and testing the equipment tomorrow (Thursday the 13th) ready for rollout to Maggieknockater and beyond.

We really appreciate the patience and the help we've had from the residents of Mulben during the rollout of this project, it's taken us longer than we had expected but it's been a learning curve!

One of us here at WiFi Scotland will soon be moving to Mulben...having spent around a year working in the area we reckon there'a no better place to move a family!

More updates to follow.

Cheers

Cracking progress guys, awesome work!

Please could you tell me if the dish at Shalloch has been installed yet? Thank you.

Can you advise when we can apply for a connection ?

We will send a mailer out and put up a Facebook post as soon as we are happy with testing. This should be no later than the end of next week. We will include the government voucher application link.

As BT have now run fibre to Mulben, (they completed the cabling on Friday) are we still able to apply for WiFi Scotland?

Excellent motor mate I hope she serves you well.

I take it the BT fibre cables aren't going to cover us at Shalloch Farm? So OK for the WiFi link up?

We are aware of connectivity issues currently affecting our Elgin/Mulben customers. We are still investigating at present but the issue appears to belong to our upstream provider so we are working with them to identify and resolve the issue and restore connectivity to those affected. ...

We are aware of connectivity issues for some users on our Brown Muir and Mulben masts. We are currently working with our upstream connectivity provider to determine the cause of the fault and rectify it as quickly as possible.

Updates will be provided as soon as we have further information.

Network Outage - Rothes Valley

We are currently experiencing a hardware failure on our Cairnty Mast which is affecting customers in the North end of the Rothes Valley. Angus is on route to the area to replace the faulty equipment and we anticipate having service restored by mid to late morning.

There's lots going on here at WiFi Scotland at present. We are currently working on the second part of our Mulben coverage and have also had the planning permission granted for our core mast South of Elgin which means we can swap out our 3 metre pole welded to a trailer for a proper 12 metre mast.

But the most important thing going on right now is the testing of our new fibre connection! While we've been waiting (and waiting, and waiting...) for Openreach to install the fibre, we have been running on two smaller connections and as we've been getting more people connected it's starting to groan under the weight of all the traffic. Thankfully the line is now installed and we are now working with our upstream provider to make sure everything is working correctly before we start moving users over to it.

Once we start moving users, it will take a wee while to get everyone moved across but rest-assured we'll be working to get it done as quickly as possible (unlike Openreach!).

Our Wi-fi is much worse than usual. Can’t wait for Wi-fi Scotland to finish this phase

We had a day out today at Innoflate, Scotland's first inflatable theme park to test the place out. Several days were spent last weekend running several kilometres of network cable and installing networking, WiFi and CCTV systems for them.

Today, however, we got to have a shot on the park and it's well worth a trip!
