Get on the BT Fibre Network

Are you one of the unlucky people still not connected to the BT Fibre Network for fast broadband?

Fibre broadband is unavailable for quite a large part of the Milford on Sea area, but anyone who has it will have an fast connection to the internet, which can improve productivity of local business and improve the experience for local residents.

Sam Turner, who works within the IT Department at Shorefield Country Park is working on improving their Fibre connections. Currently they have park wide Wi-Fi and would like to complete the same set up at Lytton Lawn. However Lytton Lawn is part of the unavailable area.

Sam, would very much like to get a community fibre partnership going within the local area and he has reminded us that Local Residents and Businesses are able to registering your interest for Fibre Broadband by clicking here.

The more people that register, the more BT will pay attention.

The BT community fibre network claim that they are helping to provide 95% coverage across the UK by the end of 2017, but aspire to go further and are always searching for ways to reach the last 5%. 

Let's hope we are not in that last 5%!

  1. Hi,

    I saw your note about broadband and thought you might like to know that the county council's broadband programme upgraded 11 cabinets on the Milford on Sea exchange in 2014 serving some 2900 premises, and we will be upgrading a further 7 cabinets covering 600 premises next year. To check if you can already access superfast broadband and to register to be alerted when we upgrade services in your postcode please visit our website:
