Community Fibre Partnership

benefits

Delivers up to 900 MB/s upload and download speeds.

Multiple users can work or play at once.

Delivers always-on reliable connection, by  replacing old copper cables with fibre optic from “exchange” to  home.

Fibre to the Premises connection is estimated to bring a 2-3% increase in house value.

who is it for?

Mortimer residents and businesses, with a Berkshire address, who’s postcode is not served when entered here in the “can I get Gigaclear” box.

Small/ medium businesses with annual turnover of under EUR50 million, who are a limited company, sole trader or charity and operate from a Mortimer address are particularly welcomed to apply because their inclusion attracts  higher government funding to pay for the cabling to our homes. 

how much will it cost AND HOW do I sign up?

Packages are available from multiple providers at prices ranging from about £30 per month, depending on provider/package/options.  In the event your current provider does not offer a contract change to the new services, you may need to pay a proportionate terminating fee based on remaining contract term.

F.A.Q.

Independent research  shows faster broadband can increase houses prices by up to 2% and that the second most asked question when
viewing a house to buy or rent is the broadband speed. 
More and more services require Wi-Fi/internet connection, Netflix, Sky Q, Ring door bell,
Xbox and security cameras.

The new service will take around 12 months to be installed.  In the event your current provider does not offer you a swap to the new Fibre service, you can typically leave by paying about 50% of the remaining term.  If in doubt call your provider to confirm their terms.

It was started by a resident who works from home and was frustrated at the unreliability of the internet connection. It is now supported by the parish council.

The exact coverage area is under evaluation by BT Openreach, the installer.  If you have a Mortimer Berkshire postcode and agreed to take out a contract with a provider, please apply. As soon as we have definitive information from BT Openreach we will confirm if your property can be connected to the new service.
