A large (and rapidly increasing) number of bandwidth-intensive services use broadband as a delivery mechanism, including:  streamed video services, such as YouTube, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, NowTV, Netflix, Amazon and BT TV  TV and video download services, such as Sky Anytime Plus and Apple iTunes  fast downloading of HD video content (rather than standard definition content)  streamed music services, such as Spotify  voice and video telephony services, such as Skype and Apple FaceTime  online backup services, such as Carbonite, Livedrive and Apple iCloud.  BBC iPlayer requires at least 3Mbps to stream HD content, and Netflix can demand 6Mbps or more to stream high-quality video. Online backups of important content, such as family photographs, can be unbearably slow with conventional broadband. Without superfast broadband, consumers have an increasingly reduced set of online services to choose from.

What we'll deliver:

  • Broadband that is fit for purpose

Why it's a great idea:

With all companies wanting to go digital and remove all face to face services and Companies allowing Working From Home to help with work life balance, without Superfast Broadband our community will be at some point behind the times further than we already are.

Steps to get it done:

  • Being able to recieve Fibre Broadband
