Across Aylesbury Vale and other districts, BT has been working in partnership with Buckinghamshire County Council to deploy fibre broadband infrastructure through the Connected Counties Programme. There are some communities within Aylesbury Vale that don’t have access to fibre broadband from BT, either because there are other networks that are offering a fibre service, or because no provider is currently providing or planning to provide access. We understand that many communities have been left concerned about getting access to the rollout of faster broadband to their area and would like to invite residents and businesses to meet us to understand how we can help through our Community Fibre Partnerships programme. Our programme is a co-funded initiative where Openreach invests alongside the community in line with their commercial model, and the community self-funds the remaining ‘gap’. By being connected to the national Openreach fibre network, communities have the widest choice of internet service providers to choose from to buy a fibre broadband service, giving competitive prices and new channels such as Sky Sports or BT Sport. We’re holding two events where you can meet us and find out more information about our Community Fibre Partnerships programme. The dates are: Monday 10th July 2017 7.00pm at Little Horwood Village (Recreation) Hall. Church St, Little Horwood, Milton Keynes, MK17 0PF And Thursday 13th July 2017 7.30pm at Chearsley Village Hall, Winchendon Road, Chearsley, Buckinghamshire, HP18 0DP Please extend our invitation for these events to friends, neighbours and other residents in the parish. I do hope that you can join us, please do ask anyone wishing to attend to register their details in advance on a simple form on our website: https://www.communityfibre.bt.com/aylesbury With best regards, Giles Ellerton, Regional Partnership Director, BT.
