The following was received from the Better Broadband for Norfolk team:
“Overhead fibres are currently being implemented and the first two of the four Fibre to the Premises solutions will be live by end March covering Hardingham and White Cross. The build will then continue to Dane Moor Green, Low Street and the Lings
Better Broadband for Norfolk”
On 22nd November 2017, the EDP ran a full page spread about Hardingham Mill as the Horror film ‘The Shuttered Room’ is to return to Norwich for a screening to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of its release.
The link below will take you to the full article, and includes photos from both the filming and also current day.
The following is the response from Karen O’Kane with a broadband update:
The installation work for the fibre has begun, but BT are currently working with UK Power Networks to resolve a safety issue in the village. There are high voltage 11kv electricity cables to close to Openreach plant, this means the required safety clearance for Openreach to work on the network can’t currently be met.
Openreach expect the issue to be resolved in time to complete the implementation during spring 2018.
The following has been received from Karen O’Kane:
“Further overhead and poling work scheduled over next couple of months. This poling and cabling work has now been completed
A safety related issue associated with an Openreach pole adjacent to electricity wires has been identified. This is preventing BT working on the pole and is at the beginning of the overhead route. BT are progress this with UKPN
Fibre overhead work will be starting in October / November as planned. “
Karen O’Kane has updated that the current situation is:
– The fibre spine route from Hingham to Hardingham is fully sub- ducted
– Existing overhead network rationalisation work has been completed
– Poling & overhead fibre work along Hackford Rd has been completed
Further overhead and poling work is scheduled over next couple of months and will be ongoing after that. This is a significant piece of work which will build the network out across the entire build area as per the diagram Karen used in her presentation as is available within the May update post.
Please find below the powerpoint presentation which was given at the Annual Parish Meeting.
