Superfast broadband - not long now

Project Update - Week ending 23rd September 2016

I refer to the last blog on improved broadband services for Nocton dated 15th September 2016.

The long running saga for the majority of residents now seems to be coming to an end, unfortunately the same cannot be said for the few still connected to the Metheringham Cab 3 at Dunston Top.

This is now the latest situation from OnLincolnshire. The Project Update report for week ended 23rd September 2016 shows:

"Metheringham 3/2 (Nocton) - Services expected to be available at the end of next week".

I will try and get more information from Onlincolnshire about the Change Request for the remaining lines next week.

BT Openreach boss wants you to know that deep down, they care
