Pilleth Fibre Project

Graham Astor By Graham Astor

Bringing community superfast broadband to 18 properties adjoining Penybont Rd. in the vicinity of Pilleth.

Whitton Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Unlike the residents of nearby Whitton our phone lines are not connected to a local cabinet and have been deemed too expensive to be included in the current roll out of superfast broadband for Wales. We're working with the Community Fibre Project team and Welsh Government to overcome this. We now have a technically viable solution, but it's expensive! Openreach will run fibre from the exchange at Cascob to the existing distribution points at Pilleth and from there to the properties adjoining Penybont Rd.

What we'll deliver:

  • ability to have consistent access to internet
  • availability of high speed, high capacity internet connection
  • fibre to premises (FTP) for the properties involved

Why it's a great idea:

Without your help the funding for this project may well be to taxing. Our current internet connection is slow, inconsistent and for many unusable. Taking a Windows Update to protect against security flaws can take up to 48 hours! Internet connection dropping during a Banking transaction, leaving the user unsure as to the state of the transaction. The Government has already stated such conditions must be remedied but how many years will we have to wait for that? We have an opportunity to get what currently is the best technical solution put in place and we'd like your help to make that a reality. Thank you.

Steps to get it done:

included in this project is a business that has issues with inconsistent slow internet connection, people who are expected to use the internet with their jobs, farmers who are expected to file information via the internet and children who are expected to research information for school. We need, not just want, a better internet connection.
