Colwinston Community Council - Latest News

01 April 2019Broadband.

There have been a number of situations in which subscribers have experienced reduced Broadband download and upload speeds. There are three main reasons for this, increased traffic, especially over the Christmas and New Year period, an increase in the number of people working from home and the poor condition of the Copper Cable system from the the Fibre Optic Cabinet. Discussions are currently taking place with Openreach, the VoGC and the WAG with a view to the Copper Cable being replaced by a direct Fibre Optic Cable. When completed this connection will be available to all subscribers regardless of Internet Provider and increase download speeds and capacity up to twenty fold. In this way all subscribers would benefit especially those in the area who run businesses and who work from home. Whilst we know how many in the Village are connected to Broadband it would help to know how many residents would benefit as businesses or working from home.
