Since our cabinets were stood earlier this month, two teams of engineers have been doing further work on them, connecting our existing copper cables. The site has also been tidied up considerably, with topsoil laid and grass-seeded, so the verge will return to green in due course.
So we’re ready for the fibre to be brought into the village, sometime yet to be confirmed, hopefully early next year. It has been suggested to me that it won’t come (as I originally thought) from Scalford Road, but from Nottingham Road. This makes sense as we know fibre is already in Ab Kettleby, which is closer to us than Scalford and there is existing ducting along Nursery Lane and Main Street – it’s easy to follow the Telecom manhole covers.
