Hockerton's Parish Clerk, Jonathan, today finally received the answer we've all been waiting for... FIBRE IS IN HOCKERTON.
Openreach have confirmed that the new cabinet Southwell 17 is serving 59 households in postcodes:
NG250PN, NG250PP, NG250PL, NG250PH, NG250PW, NG250PJ, NG250QU, NG250WA, NG250QT
Also Openreach have signed a new contract with BT for further modelling for the remaining premises in Newark & Sherwood and Bassetlaw Districts and remaining 38 premises in Hockerton will be served from an FTTP (Fibre to the Premise) structure as part of this deployment plan. However Contract 3 is the early stages and would be at least 12 months before a solution could be deployed
So, if you're one of these postcodes and you'd like to upgrade your tortoise-speed-broadband to superfast fibre, you can now contact your service provider and start enjoying faster music and film download speeds, faster internet connections and all sorts of goodies that fibre promises.
