New broadband forum set up

A Maisemore Voneus Community Page has now been set up on Facebook with the idea that people interested in the possibility of high speed wireless broadband in the village can discuss the proposals and get updates.

You can join the group here.  Steve Long, who is the local 'champion' for the proposal is a moderator of the group and says, "It will enable people to talk directly to Voneus with any requests or concerns and let them communicate with us."

The presentation from Voneus to the Parish Council was reported here.  There is more information about the company on its website  - www.voneus.com.

The Parish Council welcomes any proposal that could lead to improved broadband for Maisemore residents or be of benefit to the church, but it cannot, of course, endorse any one particular commercial operation.

For those of us that don't have (or indeed, want) Facebook, will there be updates on this site?

Andrew Cooley said...

Yes - and in The Grapevine.

If the village collectively sign up for the line-of-sight service will this halt the fibre roll out under Fastershire as a substitute service?

No. Voneus are partners with Gigaclear - who have the contract for the fibre service - and assure us that a subscription to their system can easily be 'migrated' to Gigaclear, without penalty. The fibre service will be more expensive, though.
