In 2010 the Buckminster Estate established a suite of offices within a number of Barn conversions in the Buckminster village. In order to attract businesses to the area the estate required high speed broadband links. Due to the very poor broadband speed in and around the Buckminster Estate, they invested in the latest high speed domestic and business broadband and phone line service. Delivered via a state of the art fibre optic and wireless network.
The residents in the surrounding villages were also getting very poor broadband speeds of typically 1MB. Leaving individuals with slow downloads and jittery streamed services such as iPlayer or YouTube.
Over the last year and a half Buckminster have installed the required connecting technology and have been able to offer this fast broadband to a number of villages around Buckminster, which are listed below. There are packages designed to suit both domestic and business users. There is also a further roll out programme in place.
