Natural Enterprise has been successful in bringing high speed broadband to the Yarmouth Telephone Exchange area (including Ningwood, Wellow, Thorley, Norton and Yarmouth)increasing speeds 2-3 times faster than current provision.
Yarmouth Broadband is now live, but still needs local subscribers to sign up. To encourage this we are offering three months free when you sign up as well as waiving the connection fee (normally £36. If you would like a contract sent to you please call 01983 201560 or visit www.yarmouthbroadband.co.uk for more information.
Due to the community nature of this initiative, Shalfleet and Yarmouth Primary Schools and Little Explorers and Little Stars pre-schools will each receive £250 when 200 residents and businesses have signed up to high speed Yarmouth Broadband. At the same time the price for residential users will reduce from £22.99 to £19.99 per month.
Demand on the internet will only increase and we need to ensure that Yarmouth and the Isle of Wight are not left behind. The technology Yarmouth Broadband will be using is tried and tested and will put Yarmouth in a position to move with emerging technology.
The project, thanks to the partnership working of Natural Enterprise, Navigate IT and Telecom, Yarmouth Town Council, Yarmouth Business Association, Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners and Country Land & Business Association has been funded by the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).
Natural Enterprise see this as a real opportunity not only for the Yarmouth area but for the rest of the Island too. This initial work forms part of our drive to bring high speed Broadband to all the rural areas on the Island.
Previously Yarmouth’s achievable maximum Broadband Speed was just 7.5mbs with few households having this speed. This project has enabled us to increase the maximum speed to 24mbs, which won’t be available to everyone as much will depend on your proximity to the exchange, but we are able to provide a service increasing speeds by 2 -3 times faster than your current provision.
