Fibre-optic enabled 'superfast' broadband is now available in some residental areas of the parish, mainly in parts of Hook End, Wyatts Green and Tipps Cross. To check the latest status for your address there is a postcode checker available at http://www.superfastessex.org/where,whenandhow.aspx Unfortunately the responses given are a continuing disappointment for many households and businesses. Representations made to BT, Superfast Essex, and OfCOM seeking a genuine commitment to improve on the woeful local broadband provision have been unsuccessful.
The only recent change to the broadband status of the area is an undertaking to have fibre-enabled improvements to the village area of Blackmore some time between June this year and June 2018. Many other parts of the parish are condemned to continue with poor connections with no plans in place for improvement.
