Anders Christensen, the Group Leader of the Liberal Democrats, has recently accused the Aylesbury Vale District Council of trying to “falsely portray” the recent sale Aylesbury Vale Broadband network (assets) to UK ISP Gigaclear as a success story.
He said: “I am disturbed by the press releases put out by the Council in relation to the sale of AVB. Cllr Janet Blake continues to falsely portray AVB as a success when information released to a handful of councillors (we have been gagged so we can not publicly share it) clearly demonstrate the false nature of Janet Blake’s comments."
He pointed out that although Cllr Janet Blake was right to say that fibre was laid in Oving and Drayton Parslow, the network did not connect a single subscriber.
He continued saying: The council also trot out the line that AVB serve around 2,000 premises in several villages. As noted I can’t divulge the actual number of subscribers but suffice to say it’s a fraction of the 2000. Only 1/3 of the people who paid deposits to get the service from AVB were ever connected.
