Cripplestyle Community Scheme

Scheme Information

The hamlets of Cripplestyle, Broxhill, Crendell & the surrounding areas had poor a telecom infrastructure resulting in sub 1Mb/s broadband speeds. Extending our network of fibre optic Cables to the villages will give all residents the opportunity for 1Gb/s broadband connections.

Following a successful community meeting in June 2018, we submitted our proposal to the Government’s DCMS team for funding the project.

Funding was successful and at the start of October 2018, work started on the project.

Work is estimated to be completed by the end of December 2018.
