This project will bring FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) availability to those in the Ickenham Park area who are connected to CAB 56 (this can be checked here : https://www.homeandwork.openreach.co.uk/when-can-i-get-fibre.aspx) When fibre broadband was rolled out to the Ickenham area, some cabinets were not deemed as economically viable to convert to fibre. One of these cabinets is CAB 56, located on the corner of Alysham Drive and Ickenham High Road. A large proportion of residents in Ickenham Park are affected by this omission, and, due to the fact that Virgin fibre is also not available to many of these new properties, we are now seeking funding to convert the cabinet (56) for fibre. This will then allow the local residents to apply for the fibre broadband service.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Fibre broadband means FAST internet connectivity. Speeds of up to 76Mbps are available, which are around 8-10 times faster than the typical local ADSL broadband connection. The benefits that fibre broadband bring are obvious to anyone who requires internet access for business or home use, or who wants to use one of the many TV streaming services. Not only will improved connectivity mean for a more pleasant online experience, but it will promote usage of new technologies since the infrastructure will then be capable of supporting the service. For example, 4k TV streaming requires a minimum of around 15Mbps before it is actually able to work, although in most cases 25 Mbps is recommended. This is not possible with standard ADSL broadband. With multiple members of a family now using the internet simultaneously from multiple devices, fast broadband is now becoming an essential service for households in the 21st century
