Superfast Broadband


The Superfast Essex Programme has recently signed a contract with BT to deliver superfast broadband infrastructure (minimum 24Mbps) and better broadband uplift (minimum 2Mbps up to 24Mbps) across Greater Essex. The project will provide infrastructure that will be accessible for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to sell on to consumers. The project is aimed at extending broadband coverage through public subsidy.

The initial analysis show that Canewdon is in an area that will access better broadband uplift as part of the Superfast Essex Programme. This information is only indicative at this stage and is still subject to surveys, design and planning. The timeline for delivery will commence now with surveys and planning, with network build in 2014 through to 2016.

Areas that will access better broadband uplift at this stage are subject to additional surveys and planning under the Superfast Essex Programme to scope and increase the delivery of superfast broadband in those areas.

Rochford District Council - Pay for parking by mobile phone

Rochford District Council is currently promoting its pay by mobile phone facility, which was introduced last year at the same time the new pay and display machines where installed in all the car parks.

There are now various options for paying to park in the Council’s pay and display car parks, motorists can pay at the machines by using cash, credit or debit card or by wave and pay.  There is a further option to pay by mobile phone, it is very quick and easy to use when paying to park.

The added benefits for using this option is that the motorist needs no cash or credit card to pay (once they have registered with Metric Mobile).  There is no ticket to  display on the vehicle and a text receipt will be sent to confirm the transaction has been accepted.  A text reminder in also sent when the parking session is due to expire and gives the motorist the option of extending their parking session, this is ideal  if delayed at the Doctors or hairdressers etc. as there is no need to return to the car to purchase a ticket.
