Coronavirus Update – CAI Members Update

We hope this update finds you, and yours, well.

As we have previously stated, the current pandemic situation remains a fast moving and complicated one.

The Government has included the following types of worker as among the key worker list:  Telecommunications Engineers, Field Engineers and Broadcasters and we understand that it remains the case that the Government believe that citizens do need continued access to Broadband and PSB (BBC, ITV, Ch4 & Ch5) TV services, for home working, home schooling and to receive news updates, as well as for entertainment at this difficult time. So, we feel we need to advise you to take a common sense approach to work:

  • If the aerial/dish is the only means for that household (including in MDU’s) to receive PSB’s (i.e./ they do not have cable, satellite or the ability to stream TV content) then it might be considered critical to restore their service.
  • A broadband service is also critical if anyone is working or learning from home, or if it’s the households only way to receive PSB services.
  • If you’re carrying out either of the above tasks, we would class you as key workers carrying out essential works.
