Project Gigabit funding
The Government is providing up to £210m worth of voucher funding as immediate help for people experiencing slow broadband speeds in rural areas.
Vouchers worth up to £1,500 for homes and £3,500 for businesses help to cover the costs of installing gigabit broadband to people’s doorsteps.
WHY Gig Up and Down?
Broadband for Surrey Hills Ltd (B4SH) will solve rural Surrey Hills’ broadband problems. B4SH is installing a hyperfast, brand new, independent, highly reliable, broadband network bringing fibre to the home and business.
Speeds will be 1 Gig (1000Mb/sec) download and upload simultaneously – best in class speed, especially in rural areas.
- Isolated rural communities in the Surrey Hills are desperate for reliable, high-speed internet connections.
- We have modelled ourselves on the pioneering and successful Broadband for the Rural North (B4RN) that has successfully brought hyperfast internet to the rural communities of Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria.
- From the start, Broadband for the Surrey Hills (B4SH) has been run by local people, for local people.
- One Gig Up
- One Gig Down
- After Sales Services
- Competitive price
I am enjoying the service – I was able to upload 8 videos on Saturday for students for GCSE revision (each video 10 minutes + ), each upload taking a few minutes rather than hours (literally).
Many thanks to B4SH for providing fibre to our home. It was delivered in a professional and timely manner and welcomed like a newly sunk well into a drought area! Our broadband speed in the Surrey Hills was that bad!
Just received our speed test and it’s over 600x compared to our old service. Fantastic, a great team behind this venture. Get involved and get brilliant internet in Surrey Hills.
Fantastic speed. We have gone from the information dirt track to the super fast highway. A 2Gb upload has gone from 15hrs to 3mins!! Love it. Thanks, guys.” –
Completely delighted that what I assumed would be a complicated process, couldn’t have been easier. Everyone involved have been supportive and helpful. We’re delighted.Thank you B4SH.
“On the old service it was as though I had to wait for the postal service to deliver a letter and now it is like I have a personal fighter jet taking each letter.”
Since I can now send this email by superfast broadband…. I thought it the appropriate time to say a big thank you.
It really is great what you guys do. So much of your time spent to help this community – and I suspect, in the main, such a thankless task!
Amidst the busy-ness of each new rollout, the frustrations and impatience of you would-be new customers, I imagine that the number of times that someone bothers to stop and recognise your pro bono work is depressingly small. So for what it’s worth, this is a very large and heartfelt thank you from me.
I know that we’re not quite done with this part of Farley Green so let me know if you need anything else from me. And as I watched Angus scoping out potential routes from Hound House off towards Peaslake in the field the other day, I’m reminded that your work is never done! But however long you choose to do this for, I hope that you occasionally stop and raise a glass to progress already made.
Just a short message to say that our fibre service has gone live this evening and it’s lightning fast at circa 950mb plugged in, and circa 750mb over wifi. A very big thank you to everyone involved. Incredible.
Better data speeds for my home office and family entertainment. We live in a rural area and without this scheme, I’m not at all sure we would ever get fibre!
