My long search for a credible alternative provider of pure fibre broadband to the Surrey Hills area has finally delivered. This company has been installing symmetric gigabit FTTP (widely acknowledged as the ideal solution) very successfully for several years. A new central government funding initiative, specifically targeted at alternative FTTP projects, means that they can now realistically consider areas like ours.
I’m posting this whilst some details are still under wraps, because the service provider has agreed to explain it all to us, at a public meeting in the EYSC on Tuesday 24th January 2017, open from 2 pm to 8.30 pm. They have proposed informal sessions starting at 2.30 pm, 4.30 pm and 7 pm, with a presentation followed by time to answer any questions we have. At all other times their staff will be available to explain the proposals and answer questions
I apologise for the very short notice; I sincerely believe that demand for this will almost immediately use up available resources, so I felt we could not risk missing the boat.
