Presentation about Superfast broadband in Sidmouth


A non-technical introduction to the new superfast/fibre-optic broadband in Sidmouth.
Superfast broadband has now become available in Sidmouth and other areas in East Devon. The Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce has arranged for a talk about this new technology and its benefits. The event is open to non-chamber members.

Aptly titled “Let there be Light”, the talk is a non-technical introduction to the new superfast/fibre-optic broadband in Sidmouth. The presentation is vendor neutral and not a sales presentation. The following topics will be addressed:

  • What is superfast/fibre-optic broadband?
  • What’s in it for me – Why do I need it?
  • Is this the super-hyper-galactic-sonic speed all the politicians talk about?
  • When is it really, really, I mean REALLY coming to Sidmouth?
  • Does everybody get it, do we have to buy it and where can I sign up for it?
  • Will they dig up my driveway for the fibre-glass cable?
  • Getting caught in the footnotes – How to avoid costly mistakes.
  • Can I have it for my remote farmhouse?
  • Is my computer fast enough and do I need a new router?
  • Is BT the only supplier of this, they do own the network or don’t they?
  • Can I continue to use my existing telephones?
  • Ample time for all your questions

Thursday 12th September, 5.45pm for 6pm. At Blinis Cafe Bar.

Tickets  £5 per person. Ticket price includes a glass of wine.

Tickets are available at the door or from Humbug Gifts, 3 Fore Street, Sidmouth or contact me here.
