a recent meeting of Parish Clerks within the Purbecks, a presentation
was given bringing everyone up to date on the current situation
regarding Superfast Broadband.
a nutshell, the Government is funding the UK wide roll-out of Superfast
Broadband. The Broadband speed could be up to 8x your current speed!
The timeline is around 2016 and it will be a service you pay for,
like your current Broadband.
you may be aware, the Parish Council have been trying to encourage
as many people as possible to register an interest in receiving
this facility and the presenter was asked to find out how many households
in Bere Regis had done so.
date only 73 have signed up. When you realise there are 779 properties
in the parish, this represents only 9% of households.
reason we need to show an active interest, is that the Government
concedes that around 5% of rural areas will not be financially viable
for the new Suppliers to roll the Broadband out to. Although the
village would be covered, areas like Hyde might not be. The only
way they could be, is if enough interest is registered in Bere Regis
as a whole.
help everyone who lives in our Parish to be able to get this service,
no matter how far out they live!
please try to encourage your friends and neighbours to register
their interest. By doing so, you will not be held to anything -
it will merely act as an indication of need to the prospective supplier.
