FAST BROADBAND

 We now have fibre optic fast broadband available for almost everyone at Winchelsea Beach.
Cabinet 13, at the junction of Willow Lane and Sea Road, has been upgrade to fibre, Cabinet 6,
 is at the junction of Sea Road and the A259,  and there is a new Cabinet - 17,  outside Caru on Sea Road,
to which all properties on Old River Way are connected, giving a good fibre connection.
Unfortunately, most of the properties on Morlais Ridge are connected to Cabinet 6,
and are too far from the cabinet to receive fast broadband.

You can check which cabinet your property is connected to and whether you can receive fibre optic broadband
here:  BT BROADBAND AVAILABILITY CHECKER (See example below)

It seems that the connection will not be any faster UNLESS YOU SIGN UP FOR FIBRE with your ISP.
This may or may not cost extra, but there seem to be quite a few offers around.

The actual speed you will get varies, depending on your ISP, your home wiring and equipment,
and how far you are from the cabinet- see below.
