A Community group to raise funds to enable superfast broadband in our area which is not part of the National Rollout scheme. This covers the c.550 properties connected to Cabinet 12, on the Highworth Exchange. The group aims to raise the £4684 required to fund the upgrade.

What we'll deliver:

  • FTTC upgrade to Cabinet 12, Highworth exchange

Why it's a great idea:

The impacted properties are in the 5% of Uk properties not part of the UK National rollout scheme for superfast broadband. We need superfast broadband to support in an increasing number of internet-capable devices in the home, which include: mobile phones, iPads and tablets, notebooks, e-readers (such as Kindle), desktop PCs, games consoles, Apple TV and media players, Sky+ boxes. All these devices compete for the same limited bandwidth, and basic broadband services with slow speeds is increasingly becoming a major bottleneck. With growing families, where there’s a significant number of people in a household, basic broadband is no longer enough!

Steps to get it done:

  • Contract with Openreach for upgrade
