Superfast Broadband in Tysoe

Did you know that superfast broadband might already be available to you?

The CSW Broadband Project has already completed the following upgrades to these communities within your parish:
Cabinet / Structure Area served by upgrade
Tysoe 1 Parts of Upper and Lower Tysoe
Tysoe 3 Parts of Upper and Lower Tysoe

To find out if you can get superfast broadband:
1. Check whether fibre broadband is available to you by entering your landline number or address into the BT Broadband Availability Checker.
If fibre is available, either ‘VDSL Range A & B’ or ‘WBC FTTP’ will be listed in the ‘Featured Products’ column on the left hand side of the results table along with the maximum and minimum speeds you are likely to achieve.
The How to use the BT Broadband Availability Checker web page includes clear and concise information on how to make sense of the Availability Checker results.
2. Remember, that if fibre is available, you will need to order a fibre broadband package. You will not receive the upgraded service automatically. To find an Internet Service Provider and a fibre broadband package that suits your needs, you can use a broadband comparison site such as:
Broadband Genie


Please find attached the traffic orders, notice and plans relating to the above temporary speed limit and road closure, taking place as follows:

The Speed Restriction Order will commence on 10 January 2019 and will last for a period of 18 months, or until the works are completed, whichever is the earlier. However, it is anticipated that the works will be completed by 18 January 2019.
