Village Networks are now offering connections in Stonor and Pishill. You can see a screen shot here of an actual test result at 29Mb/s in Stonor. To get connected, see this link for details. Remember this is independent of BT, nothing to do with your phone line. For businesses or anyone who wants to pay a premium, much faster speeds can be delivered. The monthly cost is the same as BT’s ‘Infinity’ service. You should be able to run a mobile signal booster over one of these if you don’t have a mobile signal and, with the right kit can even give up your BT phone line.
Next up, in a few weeks will be Russell’s Water, Cookley Green, North End, Britwell Hill, Howe Hill, Maidensgrove, Swyncombe and Turville Heath. These all depend on us getting an aerial on the police masts at Britwell Hill, which the police have finally agreed, and in some cases a local ‘node’ in the community to relay the signal from the masts. We’ll publish an update when Britwell Hill mast goes live and we can start work on other communities. If you have any questions, get in touch via Village Networks or contact Peter Richardson, Ian Beecher-Jones or me at Connect8. Happy to help – our frequently asked questions might have the answer.
