Recently a team from Community Broadband Scotland (CBS) outlined where the new fibre optic network in Orkney is going to be developed. Hoy and other areas such as Shapinsay, Rousay, Eday etc are not going to be included. CBS have given Development Trusts from the Isles an opportunity to develop an island wide solution to achieve a faster and more reliable broadband service, possibly by the end of the year.
Project managers from the Development Trusts of Rousay and Shapinsay are leading the project but we on Hoy and Walls need to provide them with some information to get the project underway. Deadlines are tight but we really need some information from YOU and we would really appreciate it if you could fill in the questionnaire (see link below) about your broadband, its speed, its cost etc.
Deadline for the return of the survey is 10th February but any submitted after this will still be of use for the next stage. Please email or give surveys to Jayne, Hillhouse, Longhope – firstname.lastname@example.org or Debs, Loft, Longhope email@example.com
