This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Our neighbourhood is starting a crowdfunding in order to raise the needed sum proposed by BT Open Reach. New services would benefit over 100+ people thanks to an upgraded cabinet.

What we'll deliver:

  • 60+ MB/s shared internet speed connection per household
  • Upgraded cabinet with free on-going maintenance from BT
  • Each household will a chance to choose from number of ISPs with their super fast fibre internet
  • Fibre Optic Cable

Why it's a great idea:

Many households will have an opportunity to benefit from the super fast fibre optic connection. Currently there is none in our area and therefore, only ADSL connection is permitted. With the upgraded cabinet from BT, people will be able to switch to a new ISP or stay with their current but upgrade to the super speedy internet allowing multiple streams, downloads, gaming and browsing much faster and smoother. The new upgraded cabinet is likely to improve the overall area reception network for phones.

Steps to get it done:

  • 50 People Contributed
