We want to help communities to secure the funding they need to get fibre broadband in their area
Hi Everyone In the new development "The Realm" in Fitzwilliam West Yorkshire, we have between 2-6Mbps Broadband. We are not part of the big BT Openreach fibre rollout (the government plan to fibre 95% of the UK by 2020) because 2Mbps is considered adequate. For people like myself who work from home a lot we rely heavily on the internet. 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 trying to stream a video is when it buffers every minute New fibre broadband will also be beneficial for: - Education (homework, coursework etc...) - Entrepreneur's - Raising the value of houses in the development Once BT Openreach have completed the project we'll have a new fibre cabinet and all the other service providers we currently have access to will be available with new super fast fibre speeds.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
I am really passionate about getting the broadband speed I need for my work and leisure, and I want to get as many people in the area on board as possible, as this will benefit all of us, we need £4780 to take this forward with BT. Theres over 150 properties on the development so I beleive this can realistically be acheived. Thank you.
