Superfast Broadband (FTTP)
If you have one of the following postcodes, then your broadband is currently on old copper wiring and your internet speed could be vastly increased with the installation of Fibre To The Premises (FTTP).
DT9 5PG, DT9 5PQ, DT9 6EL, DT9 5PD, DT9 5PH, DT9 6ES, DT9 6EJ & DT9 5NU.
The Government has come up with a scheme for residents and businesses to claim vouchers to cover the cost of an internet provider (in this area it would be either BT or Wessex Internet) to install new infrastructure to boost speeds to at least 50Mbps, up to 1Gbps. The vouchers should cover all costs and should not cost residents anything, but we need full commitment from all households to make it viable. Anyone can withdraw their interest at any time.
Whilst this may not matter to you now, for instance if you do not even use the internet, it is definitely something that people look for when purchasing a house, so it can only be of benefit to everyone in the effected postcodes.
There are 65 properties under those postcodes and we really need all of them to sign up to take advantage of this scheme. If you want to know more you can visit the Camvale PC website or contact Gary Lonsdale (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Julia Jordan (email@example.com) .
For further information please contact Gary Lonsdale or Julia Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is enough interest we could have a public meeting to discuss the best way forward and alleviate any concerns.
