The Connecting Cheshire Partnership is delighted to announce that work to provide additional Fibre to the Premise broadband is now complete.
Around 20 premises in the village are now able to upgrade from the new fibre network served from the Chelford telephone exchange, this covers premises in the vicinity of WA16 8UJ and 8UN plus SK11 9BP.
Check the Openreach website to see if your home or business can be upgraded and then contact your Internet Service Provider or shop around for the best deal and order a fibre broadband service – it doesn’t happen automatically and you could make a saving compared with your current broadband contract!

- Be aware that this does not mean every premise in every postcode will be reached, the way the network is configured may result in some not yet being able to switch, unlike FTTC, this network is built around individual premises, also it is possible that some premises will be too far from the nearest distribution point to benefit, as we only fund the network to the curtilage. If this occurs please raise directly with Openreach who can investigate further via their online form. In such cases Openreach can often connect a premise but there may be an excess construction charge levied by the ISP, this is outside our control.
- As this locality will benefit from fibre to the premise (FTTP) technology, there are a limited number of internet service providers selling FTTP at present – they include BT Retail, PlusNet and Zen, although we expect more providers will join the market as the technology becomes more widely available – this is outside our control and is a commercial decision made by individual ISPs.
