5. Broadband problems in Dry Drayton
The Rural Services Network recently posted the top 5 questions they recveive on Broadband in rural areas. One of these was: “The council keeps announcing new areas to get superfast broadband but it never gets to our house?” If this sounds familiar to you here in Dry Drayton, here is their answer: “Councils are working with BT and alternative network providers like Gigaclear to fill in the gaps left by earlier phases of the broadband roll out project. The contracts BT signed stipulated that money had to be paid back to local councils when connections reach 40% of properties. Councils revisit the areas that were too difficult the first time around and see if they have become more viable by using different technology, or increased demand. Keep contacting your local council’s broadband team and raise the issue with elected members, the greater the visibility of your problem, the more likely it is that a solution will be found.” So if you are still unable to get superfast broadband, despite Dry Drayton being ticked as fibre enabled, then contact the Connecting Cambridgeshire project team Home – Connecting Cambridgeshire and let them know your problem.
