Upgrading the Rose Green cabinet to fibre!

Chappel Idea stage

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

We have been working with BT Community Fibre to upgrade the cabinet at Rose Green to Fibre. The will be jointly funded by BT Openreach and the community. The cost to the community is £24381 - but 57 households have applied for better broadband vouchers which will bring our shortfall down to £4431.

What we'll deliver:

  • Upgrade the Rose Green cabinet to fibre (FTTC)

Why it's a great idea:

When the fibre broadband cabinet has been connected at Rose Green it becomes part of the permanent infrastructure of the village. The 97 properties that are connected to the Rose Green exchange will be able to subscribe to superfast broadband (minimum 24Mbps - possibly 60+Mbps depending on the distance to the cabinet) from a multitude of commercial providers.

Steps to get it done:

  • Contract signed with BT Community Fibre
  • Rose Green cabinet taking orders for fibre broadband
