Better Broadband for Norfolk Project – New Communications Cabinet for Surlingham


These are details of the 3rd (so far) cabinet for Surlingham. While there are no dates for installation and completion is March 2020.  It is positive that the Parish Council has received the notifications already.

The Better Broadband for Norfolk (BBfN) Project is facilitating the provision of Superfast Broadband in areas of Norfolk where installation is not commercially viable.

A new communications cabinet (reference BBfN Surlingham 5) is to be installed in the grass verge, left of 59 The Green, Surlingham (15.0m left of the existing BT cabinet and 2.0m back from road edge) to serve residents & businesses in the immediate surrounding area. No date for installation is currently available, however the BBfN Programme is due to complete by the end of March 2020.
