Bramley Broadband Update: 18th August 2013
The ‘Race to Infinity’ website has been taken down by BT so I’ve removed references to the links used below.
Those of you within Bramley who have seen our new green cabinets appearing should realise that we are quite close to going live with FTTC finally.
The following link is useful to give you an indication of what/where and when BT will rollout the FTTC (and in some cases, FTTP).
BT has launched its ‘Race to Infinity’ initiative to provide a better, faster, improved service to smaller communities, which show support to improve communications. Residents and businesses are being urged to register their ‘vote’ on the bespoke BT website for the “Turgis Green” exchange that serves Bramley, Sherfield On Loddon and the surrounding areas. By entering your postcode and telephone number you can add your support to the race to infinity for our area. The top five will have their exchanges upgraded. A minimum of 1000 votes and votes need to be registered before 31st December 2010.
Bramley and the surrounding areas currently have 404 votes (15.58%) out of 2593 lines (as of 11th December at 16:51)
The league table can be seen here
http://racetoinfinityandbeyond.veadas.net/league (and you should see our current status below).
This has many benefits for our communities. Including: Improved business communications, better school facilities and streaming web content for everybody.
Please add your vote now! All votes must be made by the 31st December !!
Remember, we need a 1000 votes before we are even considered. At the moment, 64% of our area will rank us number 5, so we really need over 1282 votes to get into the top five. That shouldn’t be too hard for our area, so pass on the message to your neighbours. We have a great opportunity to make a difference to our broadband, let’s make the most of it.
