PROJECT BROADBAND is a Parish Council led initiative to remove the disparity of broadband performance throughout the parish by setting up a Community Fibre Partnership with BT to build a customised fibre broadband solution for Knapton.
We want every resident in our parish to enjoy a broadband service that meets the changing needs of their daily lives and remove the inconsistency of the “location lottery” dictating how good – or bad – their broadband service is.
Under the scheme, BT will put a joint funding arrangement in place, meaning that they will contribute some of the costs. Our community funds the rest, helped by the government Broadband Voucher scheme (which is available to every household) and various grants that we may be eligible for, such as the Parish Partnership Scheme.
