The Superfast Broadband Open Evening was well attended, with about fifty people present, including several from Birlingham. After a presentation on superfast broadband there was a question and answer session with representatives from BT and Worcestershire County Council. The way in which superfast broadband is being installed was explained, along with its benefits.
 
It appears that the majority of Birlingham properties can now receive the new service. However, most properties in Upper End, Eckington Road and Defford Road will not benefit from superfast broadband until the next stage of implementation has been completed, which should be some time before the end of 2017.
 
You can find a report of the evening, with an explanation of why some properties have yet to be connected, at www.birlingham.org/docs/superfast_open_evening.pdf. The report also includes information on how the service works, speeds and prices, and who to contact if you cannot get superfast broadband.
