Staffordshire County Council Superfast Broadband Team have advised the Parish Council of the following, which may be of interest to residents.
- The broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO) gives residents in the UK the right to request a decent (≥ 10Mbps) and affordable broadband connection. Under the USO, eligible homes and businesses can request a connection, where the cost of building it is no more than £3,400. Consumers are now able to make requests for connections from the designated Universal Service Provider (BT). Further details can be found at https://www.bt.com/broadband/USO or by ringing 0800 783 0223.
- Separately to the USO residents may consider using a 4G option which works well especially if combined with an external antennae (size of a Pringles tube). EE offer such an arrangement, further details can be found; https://shop.ee.co.uk/broadband/4g-home-broadband
