READ HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION on what YOU can do to bring Superfast Broadband to Lesbury, Hipsburn, Foxton & Bilton   ()

 

Openreach have a Broadband Project to upgrade broadband speeds in Lesbury, Foxton, Bilton and Hipsburn if there is sufficient demand.  Government funding has been made available to help Lesbury parish to enjoy the benefits of full fibre. The Gigabit Voucher Scheme means every eligible rural home can get a voucher worth £1,500 (and up to £3,500 for small businesses) to improve broadband in their local area. The scheme works this way: each eligible household pledges their support to the scheme using this online link: https://www.openreach.com/connectmycommunity   The more people involved, the more funding available.  To date, only 3% of the number needed to render the project viable, have signed up.  If anyone has any queries or questions on this scheme, please contact Sylvia Pringle - Business and Community Engagement Officer - iNorthumberland / Northumberland County Council Mobile: 07827 825357  Email: sylvia.pringle@northumberland.gov.uk
