There are lots of benefits for both residents and businesses; for example everything online will be quicker, so if you use services such as iPlayer you won't waste time while the program buffers. Or, if you have several people in a house using the internet at the same time, there won't be a drop in service. Alternatively, if you work from home where you regularly upload and download large files, collaborate with colleagues on documents in real time or require high-quality video conferencing, then you'll also benefit.

What is superfast fibre broadband?

Superfast fibre broadband is the new generation of broadband – much faster, more reliable and it uses a different technology.

While most traditional broadband (known as ADSL) is delivered via copper telephone lines, superfast fibre broadband uses fibre optic cable as part of the link between the customer and the telephone exchange. Through this people can access download speeds of up to 50Mbps.

There are three simple steps you need to follow:

Step 1) Visit the line checker on the Superfast Leicestershire website: www.superfastleicestershire.org.uk/when-and-where

Step 2) Review your current broadband contract and research potential broadband providers.

Step 3) Contact your chosen broadband provider and arrange the upgrade.

What happens if I don't upgrade?

If you choose not to upgrade to superfast fibre broadband, you'll be able to continue using your existing broadband service as normal.

Should your phone number not work in the line checker please use the broadband availability checker here - www.dslchecker.bt.com

Good morning

Notification that Church Street, Lockington will be closed on the 2nd October 2017 as mentioned in our previous communication.

On the same day, the airport trail will be narrowed to a 4mtr wide footpath to enable us to safely remove trees, complying with legislation for nesting birds. We will then commence excavations early next year.
