This project was funded on 08 Jun 2017!

For too long the residents of Oakwood Grange have suffered with super slow internet! We got fed up, and what started as a few complaints on our Facebook group is now a project with Openreach to connect cabinet 48 to their fibre network, bringing our current speeds of between 1-2Mbps to over 50Mbps. This not only impacts on residents of Oakwood Grange, but surrounding houses and businesses also connected to this cabinet

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide the gap funding required for Openreach to go ahead with the upgrade

Why it's a great idea:

This project benefits everyone, not just those who originally registered their interest in the upgrade, so even a small donation from you means we get to the funding goal quicker and I can get contracts signed and the work can get started.

Steps to get it done:

  • Half way there - contract can be signed
  • Full funding received
