How's your internet connection?

We know many residents in Henbury are frustrated by a poor or low-speed internet connection, even using the best fibre option currently available. In part this is caused by the fact that the nearest "fibre box" we can connect to currently is in Broken Cross.

You may have seen Openreach vans in the area recently — they have been laying 'superfast' cables to certain parts of Henbury, but have currently by-passed the main residential area in the village.

Note that whoever your broadband provider is, the network into Henbury is currently provided by Openreach.

The Parish Council have been liaising with Connecting Cheshire and Openreach, to see if there might be a way of improving this situation. Openreach have agreed that if we can collect the names and addresses of those in the village who are interested in getting a better connection, they will look at the possible options for improvement. Obviously, the more names/addresses we can collect, the more impact our request will have. There's no cost or obligation involved at this stage, we are just finding out the level of interest.
