Broadband Fibre Project

Cllr Chatley reported that the addresses had been submitted to Openreach for an initial costing, he awaits their reply. Since the last meeting he has found out some more information especially after taking to someone in Barham who has been through the same scheme. Anybody who already receives a broadband speed of 30Mb or more is ineligible to take part. This would include Black Robin Lane, Dover Road, Waterworks Cottages, Church Lane and The Street up to around No 72. Also if you opt to apply for the vouched scheme you have committed yourself to have a fibre connection. Cllr Chatley had contacted BT for some costs, £10-£20 connection fee, 50Mb speed £29pm or 78Mb speed £40pm but he was told there are offers on all the time.
