Pledges will only be charged if the project hits its funding goal of £1,212 by 30 Sep 2017

We currently have no access to the UK's fibre network, meaning that we have to rely on the old copper network, which gives us very slow speeds - generally a maximum of 2 or 3 mbps. This is woefully inadequate. The only current solution is a community funded fibre upgrade project. BT and Openreach have now completed the design and price, and the total cost to us is £1,195. It is low mainly because we attracted a 65% grant from Millbrook Park School as they are also not connected to fibre.

What we'll deliver:

  • Fibre Broadband

Why it's a great idea:

Connection speeds are expected to rise from their current 3mbps to between 55 and 75 mbps which is extremely fast. Current speeds are totally inadequate for today's needs.

Steps to get it done:

  • Faster internet
