Super Fast Broadband has arrived
Superfast Fibre Optic broadband arrived in Oakley in December 2013 with the capacity for more than 2000 properties in the village to have access to download speeds of over 24Mbps or 50Mbps depending on location and which package you opt for. Eight new green fibre optic cabinets have been installed around the village and are all functioning and ready for accepting connections. You can find out what speeds are available for you address at http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/ Some ISPs seem to have been a bit slow at getting updated as to what is available for specific addresses and/or telephone numbers.
My experience of switching over to Fibre to the Cabinet broadband with BT was painless, took a couple of hours and I'm now getting upload and download speeds well in excess of the package I opted for.
