Research shows there is fibre cable connection to our community that, with additional equipment, could provide either cable or wireless broadband connection and although investigation showed that this connection would prove extremely costly, we have not given up hope! Comments in the press on how both BT and Government pledge to improve broadband connection in rural communities is encouraging.
The survey revealed that of the residents who do not already have landline broadband, 105 would like to receive it and 79 would like increased connection speed. This data was collected anonymously, so in order to progress this, we need contact details from anyone who is interested in installing or improving a broadband connection either via landline, wireless from a fixed point, or mobile telephone. If you are interested in receiving an improved broadband service, please contact us via the button below.
If you are one of the lucky residents who receive a fast broadband speed, we would be very interested to hear more: what form of connection you have, who your internet provider is, the speed you receive and where in the community you are located. Please send this information to us via the button below.
The Spring Newsletter has been produced and distributed. It contains interesting contributions from residents, local news as well as information on the newly formed association.
We hope that residents will also contribute to the social history corner and share facts, interesting anecdotes and memories of life in our community.
