In Fittleworth Parish some parishioners suffer with poor broadband speed. The Government is currently offering grants to upgrade, but in order to access these we need expressions of interest from parishioners who wish to find out more. In short, if there are insufficient interested parishioners then suppliers won’t be interested in getting involved.
Fittleworth and surrounding areas are serviced by a number of telephone exchanges and each exchange will require a certain number of residents to express their interest before service providers will engage.
At this stage all we are asking is for interested parishioners to complete the expression of interest form (link below), which commits you to nothing. If the projects actually go ahead, the provider(s) would expect residents to switch to their service for a minimum of 12 months, but that’s a long way off yet. Initially, all we need to know is who might be interested in knowing more.
The deadline for the government grant is 31 March 2021. Therefore, if you are interested, we would be very grateful if you would download the attached form by clicking on the link, fill it in and return it via Fittleworth Stores or in an email to the Clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org)
