We have a working party for the village and we need your help. We are exploring two routes:
1. Superfast Northampton – a Government run scheme looking for bids from villages to have better broad band access.
2 Community WiFi – commercial companies could offer wifi coverage for the village and these carry a regular subscription cost so we need to identify both businesses and individual needs.
Central Government has declared it wants Britain to have super fast broadband brought to 90% of consumers by the end of 2015. Northampton County Council has asked Parish Councils to identify the requirements in their local areas.
The Parish Council wants to know if you and/or your business would benefit from a faster broadband connection, so that they can lobby for funding to improve the infrastructure.
In particular they need to know if your business activities would be enhanced by a faster service, or if a faster connection would enable you to work from home more frequently reducing the need to commute.
Please fill in a short questionnaire on NCC Parish Broadband Survey (please make sure on Question 2 you put “Woodford Halse”) or http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CN2C7WJ so that we can lobby effectively for an improved service.
Please complete by 25th March so that we can advise you of our progress in April’s WOW.
