Superfast Broadband in Great Asby

How we Got Here

1990s

BT provide telephone services to Great Asby via a TPON infrastructure.  Seemed like a good idea at the time!

2000s

ADSL broadband service becomes generally avalable in the UK.  But not to Asby, due to our TPON infrastructure.

2010

Fibre to the Cabinet (FttC) broadband service commenced.  But again this is unavailable to Asby due to you-know-what.

BDUK receives £500m+ to promote superfast broadband in those parts of the country not served by the market.
This led to the “Connecting Cumbria” programme.

2016

Openreach provide a modern fibre-optic network to individual premises in Great Asby, making FttP/FttH  services available to most residents.

Thanks are due to the Directors of Great Asby Broadband (GAB) for their continual lobbying of Connecting Cumbria and BT to make available a long term superfast broadband solution for the parish.
This has resulted in an FttP (Fibre to the Premises) service being made available for the majority of it residents and businesses.
GAB no longer exists, it’s objectives having been fulfilled, but their slide presentation below explains more about this technology.

ATG Activities

We will be working with local landowners to identify small areas of land that can be used to plant trees or hedges. Occasional requests will go out to members, seeking volunteers to survey areas of land to assess the age and health of trees and to identify possible planting areas, as well as to take part in planting trees and hedges. These activities will normally be scheduled to last for no more than three hours.

The Tree Group has insurance to cover members carrying out these activities.

Unfortunately Covid-19 has not gone away, and we still want everyone to feel safe whilst being able to enjoy the film.

  • We use ‘cabaret-style’ seating around suitably spaced tables.
  • We recommend that you continue to wear a face covering when moving around the village hall, though this may be removed whilst you are seated.
  • It would also be appreciated if you could complete an antigen (lateral flow) test before attending.  (We are more than happy to refund your ticket should your test unfortunately prove positive.)
