Now that the new FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet) has been switched on and we have a super fast optical fibre communication link with the virtual world outside our village, you should now be able to talk to your internet service provider about switching to a faster service of up to 80Mbps, such as BT Infinity.
Openreach is currently in the process of upgrading the infrastructure to bring fibre optics from the local exchanges to new cabinets in each village. The plan is to provide access to superfast broadband speeds for the majority of the 17,000 properties in Rutland by the end of 2013.
If you would like to keep up to date with developments, Digital Rutland will be publishing regular newsletters about the progress of the Rutland broadband upgrade project.
