FASTER BROADBAND UPDATE

There is hope again that in the near future we will get faster broadband in West Hagbourne as work is now under way to instal and change connections over to our own new village telecoms cabinet.

A planning notification was sent to SODC in February for the installation of a brand new
telecommunications cabinet on the corner of York Road and Main Street, beside Lizard Bank with FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet).
This will mean that West Hagbourne residents should at last be able to access the ‘superfast’
broadband speeds that have been available to other properties in the Blewbury Exchange for some time.

Virgin too may eventually decide to install fibre cables in the village and have already requested that potential customers register an interest. Whilst there is no guarantee that Virgin would deliver their system to us it is worth trying.
