The big topic of conversation at Tarvin Fete on Saturday was the arrival of Superfast Broadband in Tarvin.

Regular readers of Tarvinonline will know that we have been keeping residents up-to-date with developments over the past year and you will be pleased to know that we are about 2 weeks away from the official launch by Connecting Cheshire.

We have received confirmation of installations on Broomheath Lane, Bye Pass Road, Crossfields (South), and Heath Drive. Here are comments received:

Bryan Evans of Crossfields writes:

"Talk Talk installed my High Speed Broadband yesterday. The engineer arrived on time with a phone call from the street cabinet to say he had connected the line and would be here in 15mins. He was a self employed contractor having his own company and contracted to Open reach and was very bright. Our internal phone wiring adding several phones over the years meant he had to install the new router downstairs and meant my office computer upstairs was out of reach of a 3 meter ethernet cable so I bought a BT WiFi dongle at Currys.
Now getting 38Mbits download and nearly 2 Mbits upload. Would recommend Talk Talk they have been very professional in the whole process and the engineer who came from Cannock really new his stuff and all for a £15 instal fee!"

Miles Baker on By-Pass Road
"I had fibre broadband installed today and I'm getting 75Mbps!"

Gary on Broomheath Lane:

"Changed over to fibre this morning. Speed prior to change was download 6.83 upload 0.38. Speed is now download 75.1 upload 13.1. Happy days"

Ed: "If you want to know if you can access superfast broadband then contact your current supplier either online or by telephone, and let us know how you get on"
