A reminder of an important announcement published on AudlemOnline before Christmas which you may have missed, or not followed up on with all the distractions of recent days.
It can be well worthwhile. Rather than the expected increase in charges, AudlemOnline's editor found EE have halved his combined broadband and telephone costs after switching to high speed fibre broadband — that's on a 40mbps package and an 18 month contract. And for real enthusiasts, an 80mbps package was available.
You do have to contact your internet provider. The switchover is not automatic
The announcement from Connecting Cheshire said:
The £28.5m Connecting Cheshire Partnership has announced that its new fibre-optic network is now becoming available in Audlem as part of its roll-out to homes and businesses across Cheshire.
Around 700 premises are now able to upgrade served by the two new roadside cabinets situated near Green Lane and Broadways. Three further cabinets will become live in the early New Year.
It's not just about a faster internet experience or doing one thing quicker, it's about everyone being able to do their own thing online, all at the same time. You can work or play smarter, faster, better, whether from your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Check the Connecting Cheshire 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!
The website is:
There is also a video available that explains the upgrading process.
Connecting Cheshire, a partnership between BT and Cheshire West and Chester, Cheshire East, Halton and Warrington Councils, aims to reach an additional 80,000 homes and businesses with fibre broadband.
