Following our September 2018 forum meeting it became apparent many area’s have very poor internet connections. The forum have been actively looking at ways to improve and bring faster broadband to Purfleet.
Time has moved on and we are pleased to say the first contract has been signed and deposit paid with Openreach to bring Superfast Broadband to WATTS WOOD PARK. It will takeup to twelve months to implement but what a great start. We will look at other area’s of Purfleet to continue the roll out.
If your area needs faster broadband have a word with your neigbours and let us know.
Send us your
- house number or name
- problems you are experiencing
- type of broadband; standard, fibre
- optional – supplier & package
The more information you give us the more we can help you and others. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Offcom have just launched a campaign to boost your broadband here
There is a lot to do for this to improve. A map showing known area’s without Superfast access is shown below.
