Via the BT community fibre project scheme we need to raise the 'gap' in funding that for the provision of fibre broadband for the fibre cabinet for Blaydon West. In return Openreach will install a fibre cabinet that will bring Next Generation Access to the area. There is no obligation to subscribe to BT after the installation (but, as normal, subscription to a broadband service provider will be necessary).
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Bringing truly fast broadband to our community will enable our homes to benefit from broadband speeds sufficient to use internet services where currently we don't have enough speed to stream or download. It will enable local businesses to function in an efficient way, making the most of current technology. The ability to work from home will potentially allows those who can't 'go out' to work greater opportunities and for many people simply achieve a better work life balance, particularly those with young children or those less mobile. And finally, research suggests, super-fast broadband improves the value of your home. For those that already have Virgin access it will give everyone a competitive offering to next generation broadband solutions
