Technical Update

We trialled the British Telecom high-speed broadband from the beginning of November 2017 and unfortunately because of the limitations within the system this proved to be slower than the old copper lines. We have subsequently switched back to maintain a level of service. We are currently investigating alternatives for 2018.
