One down, two to go..!

We would like to acknowledge Bovis’ generous agreement to fund the upgrade of Cabinet 53 to superfast broadband, which will serve their own and Taylor Wimpey’s customers on Kingsmere.
This has arisen following engagement with the KRA over the past few months. This engagement will offer the residents on Kingsmere some reassurance that at least one of the companies who have made significant profits as a result of their purchases on Kingsmere, are acknowledging their poor experiences with landlines and broadband.

Oh and make sure you look at the links at work or on your phones as obviously it would be impossible to do it if you are at home in Kingsmere………….

 

Keep up the good work guys!


 

11 December 2014 – The state of play

Kingsmere broadband issue featured in the Bicester Advertiser and Oxford Times (check out the links section on the right to have a read).

We will be contacting the builders and BT/Openreach again and will be addressing their responses and making clear the continuing issues for residents. We need to ensure that the builders understand that residents expect them to address these issues for their customers.

What we are asking Kingsmere residents to do –

  • Display the campaign poster (Grab your “print at home” copy from the links on the right)
  • Register your interest in Superfast Broadband with Openreach – http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/expression-gen.aspx
  • Contact your home builder, BT and Openreach to share your poor phone/broadband experience. The more people that talk about it, the better.
  • Let us know if you would like to contribute your time to help
  • Keep an eye on the KRA Facebook page and the new broadband webpage for updates – www.kingsmerecommunity.com/broadband

1 December 2014

Today (at very short notice) the KRA managed to arrange for a member of the press to come and take an interview about the problems residents are having with broadband. After a quick post on Facebook, we managed to get some of you together and produce the lovely photo below:

We will have to wait a few days to see if it makes it into the press…..
