The consultation work for the forthcoming Neighbourhood Plan highlighted that slow broadband speed was a major issue for a significant number of businesses and households in Haydon Parish.

We have therefore been looking at how we can bring full fibre Gigabit broadband services to Haydon Bridge. The Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) was launched on the 8th April to assist communities in gaining access to reliable gigabit capable broadband to everyone in the UK as soon as possible.

Over the past month the Parish Council and Development Trust have been approached by broadband service provider WeFibre (the retail brand of Telcom Group), advising us that they wish to roll-out a Gigabit (1,000 Mbps) full fibre service to residents and businesses in Haydon Bridge and other hamlets in Haydon Parish utilising the government’s GBVS scheme.
This initiative is supported by Northumberland County Council and WeFibre are already working with rural communities nearby in Acomb, Fourstones, Oakwood and Bellingham on this initiative.

The advantages include:
FREE INSTALLATION: The GBVS provides a voucher to cover the full cost of installation of your broadband service but to apply, you must go through a registered supplier such as WeFibre / Telcom.

FAST SPEED: The scheme will help accelerate the rollout of very high-speed broadband services which will benefit the community.

LOW MONTHLY COST: £20 a month for households and small businesses (5 or less employees)

WeFibre will be dropping off flyers through your door and placing posters within the community. We ask that you take the time to look at their literature and if their service is of interest to you please register that interest and reserve your voucher on their website as directed by their communication. You can also use the following link to reserve your voucher: wefibre.com/grants/
We are advised that in registering interest there is no obligation to take the service, but the more people that register the sooner we can begin the roll-out. We need a minimum of 100 households to register an interest to get government approval for WeFibre to be able to go ahead.
Thank you for your help and support.
