Update on faster broadband project for Gloucestershire:

Fastershire postcode checker is now available
Fastershire is a project to bring fibre broadband to around 90% of homes and businesses in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire by the end of 2016.

The Fastershire website
contains information about the project’s aims and the Fastershire postcode checker http://www.fastershire.com/when-where
is now live on the website.

Find out if your location is ‘accepting orders’ (ie infrastructure is there), ‘coming soon’ (infrastructure there within a year) or is a ‘future exchange’ / ‘under evaluation’.
Work has already started in Cinderford, Coleford, Lydbrook, Longhope and Drybrook and there was a recent announcement that work will begin in late summer to connect Lechlade, Fairford, and South Cerney.

The GRCC website page sums up the story so far in moving towards better broadband for rural Gloucestershire. Click here http://www.grcc.org.uk/rural-services/rural-broadband to find out more.
