Bleasby, Goverton, Gibsmere, Thurgaton, Fiskerton and Morton to get full fibre broadband

Sept 2023: Openreach, the company that looks after the UK’s broadband infrastructure, has been running a scheme to upgrade the broadband network in the Bleasby exchange area. This includes Bleasby, Goverton, Gibsmere, Thurgaton, Fiskerton and Morton. But they needed our support to make this happen.


Properties in these villages are eligible for a free government broadband voucher. By rallying together and enough people pledging their voucher, Openreach will build a full fibre broadband network.


Full fibre brings lightning-fast speeds of up to 1 Gbps and unparalleled reliability that minimises faults. It’ll mean you can easily stream TV and films, engage in online gaming, work remotely, or have multiple devices connected at once. All without any buffering or drop-outs. Research has even suggested that full fibre broadband can potentially increase the value of your property.


One thing to note, Openreach is only responsible for building the network (on behalf of companies like Sky, TalkTalk, BT, EE, Plusnet, Vodafone etc.), so you'll have a choice of your preferred broadband provider when upgrading to full fibre.


May 2024: The scheme is now well underway, we met the minimum number of pledges and the core infrastructure is already being deployed.
