This project was funded on 30 Jun 2017!

Nearly all local homes and businesses suffer with poor broadband and internet speeds and, for some, there is often no service at all at certain times of day. The current old copper cabling (to our telecoms street cabinet) was originally installed to provide a telephone service only and it is incapable of carrying the quantity of data we now need to access our emails, documents, graphics, music, video and catch-up television online. Openreach and other infrastructure providers have no plans to install a new fibre cable because they say it is not economically viable, as we are such a small community with only a few local businesses. The cost of a new fibre cable will be £12,174 and as long as we can raise half this amount between us amounting to just £6,087, we have been promised matched funding for the other half of the cost from the Community Fibre Partnerships Grant Scheme.

What we'll deliver:

  • Installation of a fibre cable to our street cabinet to which all our phone lines are connected
  • Fast broadband for Hampton Court Road, Campbell Road, The Royal Paddocks, residences in Home Park and at the Palace
  • An online service fit for the 21st Century! For most, this is an essential utility.

Why it's a great idea:

The availability of fibre cable will enable us to sign up to fast broadband with our chosen telecoms provider. The fast internet speeds will allow us to use online services effectively and without interruption.

Steps to get it done:

  • To raise £6087 by 31 July 2017

With more and more people working from home and children needing to carry out homework and research online fast broadband is essential.
