Since November, a small working party has been investigating the opportunity to upgrade our village to 'Full-Fibre' ultrafast broadband - versus the cable that we have today- which would increase the speed and reliability of our internet connections. There are several potential schemes that we can apply for as a village which would fund this upgrade (potentially in its entirety). Specific details of our work so far, and Q&A can be found HERE on the village website.
As at 10/01/21, a total of 85 registrations have been received from households and businesses in Overthorpe and Warkworth (subject to validation by Department of Culture Media and Sport), giving us a potential grant fund total in excess of £205,000.
We are now waiting for Openreach to provide final costings so that we can proceed to the next stage of the project.
