Super Fast Broadband in Hereford!
14th Dec 2010 Posted in: Blog, Projects

I am now campaigning to help bring super fast broadband to Hereford! Using fibre optic cables that send information as light through thin strands of glass, BT’s “Infinity” project is aiming to get the fastest Internet connections available to the people of England. Over the next five years BT are rolling out superfast fibre optic broadband across the UK. Currently, Hereford is nowhere near the top percentage required to qualify for the first stage of the rollout. However, BT’s “The Race to Infinity” gives us the opportunity to fast track Hereford to get BT Infinity next!

We have always suffered from low broadband speeds in Hereford but BT have decided that the five areas with the largest percentage of votes by December 31st 2010 will win the chance to bring superfast broadband to their area. BT will also donate £5,000 of computer equipment to a local community project.

So head on over to http://www.racetoinfinity.bt.com/ to cast your vote and help us put Hereford on the map as one of the fastest connected cities in the world!
