Towards "Boxing Day"
No not that one!
Time to report the latest news on Denton's slow progress towards super-fast broadband.
Last week the west end of Middle Road was closed for the installation of our new fibre-optic-ready Green Box. This is now in place, as pictured.
The next stage is to connect the box to the BT network. For this power is needed, so today making a connection to the nearest supply of electricity, on the pole on the other side of Trunch Hill, is under way.
Once the box is up and running with the magic FO cable attached, BT engineers will have to connect all our copper wires to the new facility. Any chance of this being all done by the day after Christmas? Unlikely perhaps, but keep your fingers crossed.
Norfolk County Council have produced a report showing the current status of the Council's campaign to provide super-fast broadband access across Norfolk. The Report is available here.
