Are you struggling with your internet?

Unfortunately many of us are in the same boat, suffering from terrible internet connection and many of us work from home. After investigating this further we have found the the village has fibre but not yet directly to our properties.

To do this on our own would cost thousands, however, after much research found out that Openreach provide a 'community fibre partnership' that work with businesses and residents to model a customised solution which meets the needs of the community, which is why we need you ...

These projects source funding from local authorities, government subsidy vouchers and their own commercial model as well as funding from the participants. There are currently voucher schemes in operation with offer £2,500 for business and £500 for residential premises as contributions.

We are in the process of liaising with Openreach who are investigating what level of funding we would need to raise if we were to proceed with the scheme. If anyone would like to participate in the scheme and benefit from fibre to your property please let me know so we can start to pull a list together.

There is a facebook page called Sutton Bonington Broadband or email Richard_combellack@hotmail.com or telephone 07807 515656. We need your name, address, email and landline phone number.
