Leicestershire Villages on the Verge of Broadband Transformation Thanks to Openreach

Openreach is rallying residents in 20 Leicestershire villages to seize an unprecedented opportunity for full fibre broadband connectivity. These rural communities, including Burrough on the Hill, Knipton, Rearsby, Rotherby, Scalford, Somerby, and Waltham-on-the-Wolds, are on the brink of a digital transformation, but it hinges on their willingness to apply for free Government broadband vouchers.

The process is straightforward and cost-free for residents, and these vouchers play a pivotal role in facilitating Openreach’s endeavor to construct an ultrafast, ultra-reliable full fibre broadband network.

By visiting www.openreach.co.uk/connectmycommunity, residents can quickly determine their eligibility and pledge their voucher. This initiative aims to bring full fibre broadband to an additional 4,000 rural homes and businesses in Leicestershire, which could otherwise miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime broadband upgrade.

Alicia Kearns MP, a staunch supporter of this initiative, emphasized the importance of robust connectivity for rural communities, especially in today’s digital age. She stressed that full fibre technology would significantly enhance local homes and businesses, urging residents to pledge their vouchers for the common good and ensure that no one is left behind in the digital revolution.
