Get the word out

Now that superfast broadband is available, it’s important to make sure that all residents in your area can take advantage of its benefits and we need your help to do this. We are looking for people who live and/or work within our local communities to help us inform people that the new service is available. This would involve putting up posters on local notice boards and delivering leaflets to households in your area.

If you feel enthusiastic about the benefits of superfast broadband and would be willing to help us spread the word please email us at broadband@cswbroadbansd.org.uk

Please Note: Even though this cabinet has been upgraded, not every property connected to it is guaranteed to achieve superfast speeds due to some properties’ distances from the cabinet and/or quality of copper connections.
