February 2021 Broadband Update

Property owners need to request an FTTP service to get connected. Connection is free and price plans have reduced considerably in past 12 months and may actually be cheaper that you currently pay. Speeds from 30Mbps download and 10Mbps upload to …as fast as you like!

Kevin is leading a CFP for Newtown Square area and is just waiting for enough householders to sign up for the Rural gigabit vouchers scheme to cover the cost and get the scheme underway.
