The newest local provider of high-speed fibre optic broadband for the area is set to host a special public event in Peasedown St John with the village’s Residents’ Association.
TrueSpeed provides ultrafast internet connectivity via a fibre optic link directly to your home or business premises.
They have started work in Peasedown St John with a new connection box being installed in Wellow Lane.
Neil Rogers, TrueSpeed Community Engagement Manager for the Somer Valley, said: “TrueSpeed is at the technical forefront of data communications in the UK and the world.
“Our Fibre-To-The- Property installations offer fast, reliable and state of the art internet connection. We offer speeds from 200Mb/s to 10Gb/s.
“We are a modern, flexible and agile company, founded by farsighted and exciting technologists, visionaries and business people, all of whom bring a breadth of commercial, technical and service led acumen, delivering the best possible customer experience.”
The organisation has been working with B&NES Council on its new Community Libraries initiative.
Geoff Fenton, Vice-Chairman of Peasedown St John Residents’ Association, said: “We met up with Neil and the team at TrueSpeed recently to discuss plans to install their internet at St John’s Community Hall.
“The Hall currently hosts a number of community groups, a new play-group and will soon be home to Peasedown’s new community library.
“We’re discussing with TrueSpeed the option of providing a free internet service for any users of the Hall and the Library.”
The internet provider’s current residential package delivers speeds of 200Mb/s, for both download and upload.
All of their services are considerably faster, safer and future proofed than copper based broadband products.
