The scheme has reached the 30 subscribers required to be viable. The process of ordering the leased fibre connection and planning the residential installations has begun, with the residential installations expected to be complete ahead of the fibre connection. This means as soon as the fibre connection is live, West Wickham residents will finally have access to Superfast Broadband.
Air Broadband are still taking orders for the service, although the installations will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you are interested in signing up, you can do so at http://www.airbroadband.co.uk/sign-up-for-superfast-broadband-now/, or give Air Broadband a call on 01223 653400, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also have spare sets of forms and can answer some questions, please email me at email@example.com if you have any questions or would like me to drop off a set of forms.
This solution sees Superfast fibre broadband being transmitted over high-speed Wifi from Horseheath to Hill Farm from where it is relayed to all subscribed properties with a line of sight of Hill Farm. Properties without line of sight will receive their Air Broadband signal from subscribed neighbouring properties. The “live” is now expected towards the middle/end of March.
