I live at Devonshire Road and since the start of this pandemic I’ve been working from home. My job requires really fast internet connection, which turns to be a no no for my area. I’ve tried every single internet company out there but the answer was always “no fiber” in your area. I can’t believe that not every household can get fast internet, considering the current situation and how many people are actually working from home. The only eventual possibility for getting one is to create an Openreach community for my area and get on board as many households as possible so that we can work directly with the company to install the fiber cables. That means Openreach covers a part of the cost and the rest gets split between households. As far as I know it is possible to apply for government help and grants too. I wonder if there is such group already in Forest Hill area? If not, I’m looking for households and businesses that would be interested to take part. I don’t know how much it would cost as of yet. I need to go through an application procedure to get a quote.
I’m trying to solve the internet issue, as I am currently using my mobile internet for work and that is not great either. Looking for other as desperate as me Forest Hill people
Let me know
