Superfast broadband - update

Mapped: The best and worst places in the country for broadband

Using the map below, you can see how broadband in your area of England, Wales or Scotland, measured by average download speed, measures up to the national average of 29.4 Mbps.

Nocton supposedly falls within the area that is getting an average 23.3 mbps... however my service with BT averages out at less than 4 mbps!!

I am a local resident that reports news for our village via the 'Nocton in Lincolnshire' web page:

Further to the 26 October 2015 Press Release about improved broadband services for our village, please will you provide an update about BT's plans to upgrade the Metheringham Pillar 3/2 cabinet to fibre (this is situated outside the Post Office on Main Street, Nocton, LN4 2BH).

In the Press Release, a completion date of March 2016 was reported, as we are now only two months away from the stated deadline, has this work been scheduled and when can we expect the upgrade work to commence please?

Many thanks.

Hi Geoff

Apologies for the delay in our response. We have been told that this cabinet should be completed before the end of March 2016. We are conscious of the fact that time is moving on and are asking BT for status reports on this – we will aim to provide a definite answer for the village and will include this cabinet in our weekly update list on Friday this week.

Kind regards
