Fibre Optic Broadband

Event Date: 31 December 2021

(Ignore the event date above)

Wessex Internet have been thinking of bringing fibre optic broadband to East Knoyle.

This would be a connection to your door with no connection charge.

If there is enough interest then Wessex will apply to the government for a grant, which is why they will be able to connect for free.

Once approved they will be able to apply for residents funding on their behalf (This is what typically takes the most time as they have to sign up enough residents and businesses to make the scheme eligible for the government to fund). When they have enough approved vouchers and the main network construction has been completed, they can look to book everyone in for their garden works and final installation.

It will be a free installation funded by the government and all the customer will have to pay for is the monthly subscription. Please see their available monthly packages here:

If anyone thinks that they would be interested in a government funded fibre installation from Wessex, please ask them to register their interest online here:
