Garve & District Broadband Group
The three areas, which estimate to include 133 properties and ten businesses, are:
- Achnasheen to Gorstan
- Little Garve to Aultguish
Our broadband reliability and speeds are poor. We are not served well and we pay the same rate as those parts of the UK who enjoy speeds up to 100 times faster. Our objective is to bring an improved broadband coverage to our community that offers everyone faster communication via email, Skype and Facebook and the ability to do things that others take for granted, e.g. streaming TV and games.
Broadband was the number 1 concern
Better broadband was the number one concern in the GDCC's recent community needs survey. It is a true community project for everyone acrtoss all age groups.
The grouop has established some top level contacts at BT Community Fibre, HIE, various suppliers and installers, and has received excellent advice from Community Broadband Scotland. We've also contacted our MP, several MSPs and Highland Councillors who have supported us by lobbying BT and HIE.
Stay tuned for further updates as the project picks up pace.
