I live in Watton, a town not far from Norwich in Norfolk. I was walking into town this morning where I found a new FTTC cab installed. It got me thinking if the cab I assume i'm connected to will get one. Cabinet number 5. It must serve a good few hundred houses
Having a quick look at http://www.betterbroadbandnorfolk.co.uk/ dosent give me my answer
In reference to www.betterbroadbandnorfolk.co.uk/a_z-list.aspx:WATTON
BBfN will bring better broadband to parts of Carbrooke, Griston, Little Cressingham, Merton, Saham Hills, Saham Toney, Threxton and Watton (including Threxton Road Industrial Estate, Neaton Business Park, Breckland Business Park, Norwich Road Industrial Estate, New Green Business Park and Thetford Road Business Park) - services should become available from ISPs from January to end March 2014.
Cabinet 5 is in the middle of the chain listed above but the estate names served by it are not named.
Having a look at the roadworks website no works are scheduled. However with the cabinet being some distance from the road I wouldn't expect needing to obstruct the road with any works.
I have linked a couple of photos and google maps
Should I get excited with the prospects of FTTC?
