Community Fibre Partnerships Delivering fibre to the hardest
to reach communities

Fed up with slow broadband in Epping Forest and want to do something about it?

If you're not part of any BT fibre broadband rollout plans we can help through having a partnered approach. We've worked with lots of communities to build solutions to deliver superfast internet.

Our solution is a Community Fibre Partnership. This is where we work with a local group to bring fibre broadband to an area.

There usually needs to be a joint funding arrangement, where we contribute to the costs in line with our commercial model, and the community self-funds the remaining 'gap'. Our teams build the most affordable solution possible, and even though you'd be co-funding the infrastructure, it could work out much cheaper than selecting a network where you're tied to a single supplier over the term of your contract.

We're holding two events where you can meet us and find out more information about our jointly funded fibre offering, and we’d like to invite communities to attend who wish to explore options with Community Fibre Partnerships to get access to fibre broadband. 

The dates are:

Monday 17th July from 7pm

Toot Hill Village Hall. Toot Hill Road, Ongar, Essex CM5 9LR
Register for this event >


Wednesday 19th July from 7pm

Willingale Village Hall. The Street, Willingale, Ongar, Essex, CM5 0SN
Register for this event >

Please extend our invitation for these events to friends, neighbours and other residents in the parish. We do hope that you can join us.

Important note: if you can’t make one of these events but are interested in bringing fibre broadband to your community please register here
