Cotswold Broadband to hold series of open evenings
One of the growing number of full fibre (FTTP) projects underway in the UK is Cotswold Broadband, who aim to provide fibre services to 9,000 homes and businesses in the Chipping Norton area. As part of the prelude to the start of any network build a series of public meetings will take place in the coverage area to explain the aims of the project and how people can invest. The meetings will all run from 7pm to 9pm:
- 18th September, The Village Hall, Kingham
- 20th September, Chipping Norton Town Hall
- 25th September, Tiddy Hall, Ascott under Wychwood
- 27th September, New Beaconsfield Hall, Shipton under Wychwood
- 4th October, War Memorial Hall, Charlbury
The aim for the project is to bring future proof fibre to the premises to those parts of the Cotswolds where commercial interests to date have not offered any service beyond standard ADSL and ADSL2+, and even BDUK projects may only deliver a fibre to the cabinet solution or worse.
For those unable to attend a meeting, you can still show your interest in the solution via a demand survey, which also carries the chance to win a Google Nexus 7 tablet. The closing date for the demand survey is 29th September 2012.
