Ultrafast broadband – progress – Brightling, East Sussex – village website

Pledges for the Brightling/Netherfield/Woods Corner ultrafast broadband project have now reached 46% – not far short of half way.

If everyone who has already pledged could persuade one of their neighbours to pledge too, then we would have virtually achieved our target.

If you haven’t already done so, please consider pledging your voucher now. It takes less than 5 minutes.

The sooner we can get to 100% of the target, the sooner the build of the new network can start. (If we don’t get 100% of the target by mid-May, none of it will get built and no-one will benefit).

Some people have expressed concern that they are committing to signing up to taking a more expensive service, which they may not need. It is not possible to guarantee what the prices will be. However, in today’s newspaper, TalkTalk are advertising a 147Mbs (average speed) full-fibre service for £32 per month (18 month commitment). This may well be little more (perhaps less) than what people are paying now, and the full-fibre service is vastly superior. Homeowners may also reflect that having full-fibre broadband is reckoned to add thousands of pounds to the value of your house.
