URGENT! Superfast Broadband Funding Opportunity
Are you interested in having Superfast Broadband? An opportunity has arisen which could, given your co-operation, greatly improve broadband speeds in our area.
Worcestershire County Council has set up a fund to co-invest with communities who are not included in the existing deployment plans. WCC are allocating the fund on a first come, first served basis so we would like to make our initial submission quickly.
The network access will be installed by BT Openreach then each resident can select their preferred service provider. Openreach will decide on the best method of providing network access but it may well be fibre to each property (FTTP). This will provide a huge increase in speed for each household. We believe this is an opportunity worth pursuing.
We don’t know how much each property will have to contribute but we won’t commit to anything until we have costs from Openreach and all agree to proceed. What is important is that we know you are interested. This will help Openreach decide on the most cost effective way to connect everyone to the network.
We have to provide a list of all the addresses interested, together with the landline telephone number to receive a quote.
Once BT Openreach have prepared the indicative costs, based on the list of premises we provide, we will have a meeting where we can all hear their plan for connecting us and see the costs involved. We can then discuss whether we wish to proceed and the next steps.
If you are interested please contact Anne Dyson, our Parish Clerk, and ask her to include your details. You can email Anne on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone her on 01527 404269
