We are in the 5% of the UK not part of BTs plans. We need to raise £20,000 as a community to get BT Openreach to install fibre broadband to our homes in 'The Realm' and on Railway Terrace Fitzwilliam

Hi Everyone. In the new development "The Realm" and on Railway Terrace in Fitzwilliam West Yorkshire, we have between 2-6Mbps Broadband. We are not part of the big BT fibre rollout because 2Mbps is considered adequate. For people like myself who work from home a lot we rely heavily on the internet. And 2Mbps does not cut it for me or, I suspect, many others. It's quite embarrassing when you drop off a Skype conference call or lag so badly no one can understand you, or it takes half hour to upload a document. Not to mention how annoying it is to not even be able to stream an episode of GoT at the end of the day.

What we'll deliver:

  • A BT community Fibre Partnership

Why it's a great idea:

I am really passionate about getting this fixed, and want to get as many people in the area on board, as this will benefit all of us, we need £20,000 to take this forward with BT. th over 150 properties between the Realm and Railway Terrace i beleive this can realistically be acheived. Thank you.

Steps to get it done:

  • £20,000 to Initiate a Community Fibre Partnership with BT
