Happy Superfast New Year

Superfast Fibre Broadband is being rolled out in Tavistock later this year. This is a massive boost for everyone. Superfast does not suffer from the same speed fluctuation as standard broadband. Downloads that took hours will take minutes, those that take minutes will take seconds to instantaneous. Upload speed will be faster than most get as a download speed now.

The only downside is that some will not be able to access superfast because there was not enough interest shown in their area. Those who go without should have this addressed in a few years' time, 2020 at the latest.

Many have already registered interest which has helped tip the balance in getting superfast to the Town. Registering interest is not an obligation to take superfast when it arrives. But it will help achieve a more extensive fibre network for the Town.

It's free and takes little effort – www.superfast.me.uk  and the sooner it is done the better as the number of connections and in what cabinets will be decided soon.  Months before it is installed.

    Thanks for registering. I would point out that it is not all about speed, standard broadband suffers from contention issues wherever you are. Superfast only varies between 1 and 2 Mbps and there are no contention issues.

    You are fortunate to be in the top 10 per cent speedwise. But I have a feeling you will be tempted with 10 Mbps upload and offers of superfast deals...

    I see articles with encouraging forecasts like:

    "MORE than 220 new jobs and 140 new businesses could be created in Tavistock over the next 15 years as a result of super-fast broadband"

    Given the inevitable commercial pressures that will supply the upgraded broadband to those who have the best broadband (mine's pretty good at 14M down 1M up by virtue of proximity to exchange) in Tavistock already, where specifically will the new jobs and businesses appear from? It'd be great to read a real example.

    I write software and administer remote servers from home so reliable wired (wireless isn't good enough) Internet is more important than ultimate speed for me. I registered my interest in superfast all the same - it seemed churlish not to!
