Everyone who uses a computer in the Redlingfield knows, our broadband speed is very, very slow. Making life difficult for everybody, whether that’s running a business, studying, shopping, keeping in touch or trying to watch a film online. For the past two years, Suffolk County Council and BT have been rolling out broadband to the parts of Suffolk, like us, that need it most.  That first roll-out has finished and fast broadband got as close as Eye and Occold but didn’t reach us as we are too far away from the exchanges. We have been lobbying furiously to make sure we are included in the next contract.  We now know what’s planned and it’s both good and bad news. The good news is that will be in the very first group of villages to next get broadband. The less good news is that isn’t going to happen until 2016 as they need to test some new products they hope to give us, which if they work, will mean we get superfast broadband in 2016.
