Superfast Broadband Drop-In
Re: Superfast Broadband Drop-In
As you may be aware, I, alongside your two local Councillors, have been working on a project with BT which we hope will deliver superfast broadband to the rest of Eastoft.
The Government-funded roll-out of broadband upgraded the green BT cabinet that serves the village to superfast broadband, which has resulted in many now having access. Sadly, much of the village does not benefit from this upgrade as those premises are directly connected to the exchange and do not receive their connection via the green cabinet in the village.
We are now looking at an alternative scheme that could deliver superfast broadband to remaining homes. Sadly, due to EU rules covering the Government-funded roll-out, this funding cannot be used for this. That is why we are working together to establish a ‘community fibre partnership’ with BT to upgrade those premises.
To do this we need the support of local residents who are presently unable to access superfast broadband. We are not asking for any financial commitment, we just need as many of those residents as possible to register an interest.
If you live in one of the properties in Eastoft that still cannot access superfast broadband and would like to support this initiative, please pop along to the information session being held on Thursday May 11th in the Village Hall between 4.30pm and 7pm. You will be able to find out more and register your support.
