Given all the holes that have been dug in roads, footpaths and verges around Haddenham in recent weeks, associated with the laying of new drains, gas pipes and various other utilities, it may have escaped your attention that BT engineers have also been busy laying out fibre optic cables to the large green cabinets in the village.
This is the final stage in rolling out 'Superfast Broadband' to Haddenham.
For those keen to secure the fastest possible internet connection, in order to overcome domestic frustrations caused by multiple family members logging onto the internet simultaneously, or to facilitate the streaming of on-demand television without buffering pauses, or to upload and download large files associated with their work, this development has not come a moment too soon.
Your website editor, for one, is extremely pleased to have this facility now available!
Many areas of Haddenham are now fully connected and domestic and business users can upgrade their broadband service. A few areas in the village have yet to go live, but you may be able to pre-order the service.
Connected Counties, a partnership between Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire County Councils, has now released a list of the postcodes showing the activated areas — you can check the availability at your own postcode by clicking on the PDF below the image on this page.
Those choosing to go with BT will find the details here.
Other providers are available, of course. You might choose to start your search here
