A community funded project in partnership with BT Openreach to upgrade to fibre broadband on the new build Milestone Grange housing development

Stratford-upon-Avon Delivery stage

funded icon
This project was funded on 21 Dec 2018!

BT Openreach have provided a quote of approx £5k to upgrade the cabinet that supplies telephone and internet services to properties on Milestone Grange. The upgrade to the cabinet will allow properties supplied by it to have ‘super fast broad’ where internet download speeds will be in excess of 24Mbps. The current cabinet can only deliver speeds of around 4Mbps and many properties receiving much less...

What we'll deliver:

  • Faster internet

Why it's a great idea:

For a relatively small investment per household we can improve our broadband speeds by over 5 times!! For many that have children who need internet for school work, need to use the internet to work at home or run their own businesses from home this upgrade will make great improvements to their family life’s and businesses. As a reminder this upgrade will bring superfast broadband to our development meaning our internet cabinet will be capable of Superfast broadband (24MBps upwards). You will need to opt for a superfast broadband (fibre) service from supplying internet providers to benefit from the upgrade.

Steps to get it done:

  • Cabinet upgraded
