LAST year the Hedon Town Mayor John Dennis undertook talks with KC about bringing their flagship superfast broadband product Lightstream to Hedon. After twelve months of what seemed productive talks, KC announced the roll-out of their Lightstream service – but Hedon wasn’t included!
Today marks just one week until the General and East Riding of Yorkshire Council ELECTIONS. This would seem an opportune time to kickstart that campaign once again and seek political, business and community support for a campaign to convince KC that Hedon is the perfect place for them to invest with a real demand for their product existing. Several of the candidates have expressed enthusiastic support for this campaign which will begin online with the Pledge Form below.
Over the next month we hope to build up the number of pledges substantially.
THE Campaign to bring superfast broadband to Hedon continues! The ability to get online quickly is becoming crucial to everyday life – broadband increases our access to banking, shopping, entertainment, learning resources and other services.
With superfast broadband, you can download large files very quickly which is not only convenient but is becoming increasingly a necessity to take advantage of many opportunities on offer from modern companies and service providers.
Without superfast broadband in Hedon, the town is at a disadvantage!
Below is a Pledge Form which will give you the opportunity to say which superfast service is appropriate for your use.
This Pledge form relaunches the campaign to bring superfast broadband to Hedon.
As you sign up to the Pledge Form, you will indicate which is your preferred service. From the date you sign up, we will carry out a monthly totalling up of the amounts people would have paid which represents the lost payments/custom to KC.
1. Firstly check out the KC Lightstream products on offer at the KC website at http://www.kc.co.uk/products/broadband/ (opens in a new window). And while we haven’t included these, local businesses should have a look at KC’s www.superfasthull.co.uk website.
2. After making your choice enter your details and preference here. This doesn’t commit you to anything but will help to prove the demand for superfast broadband in Hedon.
To give a public display of the numbers signing up, then please complete the survey too. Finally, do leave comments below this article and tell us about how you would use broadband and why KC should commit and invest in Hedon.
