Eastoft Broadband Extension Update as of 29/7/2018
We now have the final figure from Openreach
Unfortunately, due to making sure that everyone on the western side of the village can be served, the price has gone up (back to where we were in the first place when only 121 premises were to be served; now the number is 149 premises). Due to this we are a few thousand short of the final figure that would enable us to sign the contract. We are very grateful for all of you who have signed up for the voucher scheme but really need for some more to come forward.
I am aware that the cost of moving to fibre would seem excessive to some and this has put some of and understandingly there are some who really would not benefit due to low usage.
However, I would like to encourage those whose reticence is due to perceived cost to look at your total bill for your broadband service (some of you may even still be paying for an extra line unnecessarily) and then compare that to the expected cost of the first year for fibre service through the voucher system.
For instance (in round figures) the cost to me at present for the very slow unreliable system per month is £43 (including vat and line rental) and to get the full fibre service from BT at present prices (I have been quoted direct from BT online chat) would be £54.95 including vat and line rental. So;
Please could you give this some consideration and don’t hesitate to contact us on 07710502125 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to discuss the above.
And please remember this is for the minimum contract only even which if 18 months is still just over £200 for the year and then you may well choose to downgrade your speed to a cheaper plane. Please also note that I cannot guarantee these prices as they are obtained at this date.
