Fibre Broadband is here!

Update – See this thread on the forum for information about installation delays in some parts of the village.

The first few customers have now gone live with the new fibre broadband that has been installed in the village.

It appears most of the village can now order these super-fast broadband packages, though the speeds available will depend on several factors, your distance from the exchange being the main one.

So far, it seems the fastest (hypothetical) speed available is up to 80Mbps download and up to 20Mbps upload. Some outer parts of the village seem to be restricted to a maximum 30Mbps download and up to 5.7Mbps upload.

Remember, speeds never tend to attain the maximum advertised, though some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are better than others in making this particular point clear. Contact your existing ISP for details of availability and prices, though we’d certainly recommend you shop around!
