I have joined this forum to try to find out about what i can do having been left out of the Fibre roolout in Cornwall .
Cornwall CC set up a company called Superfast Cornwall about 3 years ago .I HAVE BEEN WAITING 3 YEARS FOR THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION what speed im i going to get at my house . Fill the website box in and we will let you know when fibre is in your area and available to you .Well they didn't and it's not !!!!
Superfast Cornwall have had £ 132 mill to spend and as far as im concearned NOT spent it wisely .They seem to just have enhanced speed for those users who had a decent speed anyway and NOT done anything for me or the other 13000 people in a slow / not spot .
With 200,000 connections and a take up of about 15% it seems just a waste of money whan people who want and need faster speeds and will pay for it are left out .They spent £3.7 mill on the Scilly Isles 2200 connections .At 15% take up it seems a lot of cash each . It has got me wound up as in the press it says and the poor people of scilly onlyhad 8 meg download so we are now giving them 30 meg or whatever .
My point is the people who need faster and wider ARE NOT getting it they seem to be doing the easy ones and not extending the Fibre foot print to the below 1 meg and the have nots.Unless you are privalidged or live in Scilly .I am below 1 meg so get the choice of 3g ( wop wop ) OR expensive and a second rate service via sattelite .....NOT IMPRESSED OR HAPPY !!!!!
Anyone help with ideas or experiance of getting a fair crack of the cash ??
