Superfast broadband promised for Christmas!
British Telecom are now scheduling Hollingbourne to have superfast broadband for December 2014 in time for Christmas. Hollingbourne currently has a limited service with some areas being denied service at peak times.
Last year Hollingbourne Parish Council launched an e-petition for better broadband which only attracted a few hundred signatures before it weas withdrawn from the Government website in April. Since then BT confirmed that they would be upgrading the Hollingbourne Exchange and December is now given as a date.
Pictured below is the Hollingbourne telephone exchange in Eyhorne Street which is to be upgraded.
