Many keen users of the internet will have upgraded their broadband connection in recent months, following BT´s completion of fibre-optic cabling of Haddenham. Typically, download speeds of about 50Mb/sec are achievable.
Now there´s the prospect of even faster broadband services, if there is sufficient demand.
Virgin Media have committed to connect up to 4 million new houses to their 'genuinely' superfast fibre network over the next 5 years. They can offer speeds of up to 300Mb, which is clearly much faster than the recent upgrade we got in the village last year.
Virgin have not decided which properties to connect, and this is where we can have some collective influence over their decision.
If enough businesses and residents from Haddenham register their interest, and Virgin find a near enough point of connection they will seriously consider adding us to their super fast network.
Conveniently both Aylesbury and Wendover are already connected to Virgin Media, so the hop over to us is possible, and it could also benefit our near neighbours in Stone, Dinton and Cuddington, so encourage your friends from these nearby villages too.
Please go to the Virgin website and register your interest to influence them now. The more we get behind this the better chance we have of further improving our villages facilities. You can do so here.
There is more information on the Virgin media web site, the FAQs are a good place to start, they can be found here
