Rural Broadband

The Parish Council is conducting a Broadband survey. 


The Parish Council is aware that there are a number of residents in East Mersea that regularly use the internet for either work or private use. As a Council our roles are to promote business in East Mersea and provide services to our residents, and so we are sending this letter to all residents to ascertain if as a Parish Council we should be looking at the viability of a collective scheme to improve broadband cover in East Mersea, probably through a wireless system. 


If broadband is important to you please could you email the Parish Clerk, Vanessa Capon-Elliott at or write c/o 19a Reymead Close, West Mersea, Colchester CO5 8DJ by Friday 4th January 2013. Please could you include in your letter;


  • Your address
  • Whether you need broadband for business use, private, or both
  • Present broadband speed
  • Required broadband speed
  • Any suggestions; e.g. type of service, preferred supplier





FibreWiFi is a Next Generation wireless internet service provided by Buzcom, a communications Company based in Chelmsford. The Company delivers Super Fast and Ultra Fast broadband connections across Essex and the South East of England without the need for telephone and instead uses state of the art radio’s to deliver service to customers.

In 2010 Essex County Council awarded a contract to Buzcom to delivert high speed internet thoughout the Maldon District. After the success in Maldon, Uttlesford District Council introduced a smiliar scheme in 2011. Epping Forest Councol has recently awarded contract to supply district wide Radio Broadband coverage to its area. Expansion of services to Suffolk expected during 2012.


The Next Generation Broadband service provides Urban and Rural areas with high speed broadband at amazing Super Fast 25Mb & Ultra Fast 50Mb connection speeds.

FibreWiFi is delivered by radio so there is no need for telephone lines meaning that the service is accessible in areas that standard broadband providers simply do not reach.
