We’re seeking to raise the funds to provide homes affected at box "Wanstead/PCP31" with improved internet access and enable better broadband for the local village community. We would like to raise £100 per house affected to increase the option have superfast fibre optic broadband in your home. If we raise above our target then we would reimburse all donators accordingly. Around 5% of the UK isn’t covered in existing national fibre broadband rollout plans and part of Snaresbrook falls into that group. We’re not content with that, so want to work in partnership with BT to get superfast broadband to homes. We’ve set up the Superfast Snaresbrook effort to raise money to jointly fund the cost of a new fibre broadband cabinet that will be connected to the national fibre network. BT is funding a large chunk of the cost and we need to raise monies to cover the cost of the remainder.

What we'll deliver:

  • Upon completion of the work carried out by BT, homes affected will be able to get super fast broadband

Why it's a great idea:

Provides the community with the chance to have super fast broadband

Steps to get it done:

  • Upon raising the full funds required by - the money will be transferred to Openreach to start on the work
  • Once the work has been completed all members of the community will be notified
