Rural Broadband Fibre Upgrade — Works to commence in 2016

The Notts County Council has, in the last three weeks, confirmed the letting of Contract 2 which aims to bring the upgrade to smaller more rural villages in the county.  The County Council states the latest position is that works to facilitate coverage of fibre broadband in Colston Bassett have been included in Contract 2 and the work will commence in the summer of 2016.

It is not yet clarified as to  how long the works will take,  but for the first time we have confirmation that all the village will now be included for upgrade and a start date at last !   The Parish Council will keep villagers informed as soon as further information becomes available.
