Superfast Broadband for Speen?
Bucks County Council, along with others, are seeking our support. Even without the fibre required for BT’s Infinity or Virgin’s offering an upgrade to the Hampden Row Exchange might yield speeds of up to 20mb. Registering your interest at http://www.superfastforbucks.org/ won’t cost a penny. If the campaign is a success and superfast broadband is made available on your street, you’ll be under no obligation to sign up to receive it. By registering, you’re simply helping Buckinghamshire County Council and Buckinghamshire Business First demonstrate to broadband service providers that there is a demand for superfast connectivity here in Buckinghamshire. 13,800 had said “yes please” by the 5th November, however this only includes 90 houses from Speen (an increase of just 3 in the last month), we are still classified as a ‘low demand area‘ – so go on, help boost the number, click on the link above and do it now..
Natural Gas for Speen?
Should Natural Gas be available in Speen? With the price increases in bottled gas recently, you may wish we already had gas on tap. You may not want it yourself, but should it be an option? If you are interested and would like to support the idea, you can send an email to Brenda Davies by clicking here.
