PartyTimeInMoyOpenreach have been working for the last few weeks to connect all premises in the Moy area to the new superfast fibre cable. Households and businesses will be able to choose broadband packages offering speeds of 40, 80 and even 300 Mbps. Compare this with existing speeds of between zero and 2Mbps! 
 
Openreach will work their way along the main cable, connecting up groups of premises as they go. The first premises are due to be connected in mid to late October, and all premises should be connected by Christmas. It is therefore time for Moy residents to think about choosing a service provider for the new superfast service. Here's a simple guide :
 
At the moment your service provider for basic broadband is probably BT or Plusnet. They supplied the router you are using in your home. Once the new fibre cable is connected to your house, you will need to take out a contract with a service provider who can supply the new fibre to the premises broadband. For the time being there are only 2 companies who can do this : BT and Zen. They will supply new routers which can handle the superfast speeds.
 
Here are a couple of links to start you off. :
 
 
You will need to check the deal each company is offering and decide which one suits you best. Service providers constantly change the terms and prices of their packages so you should check carefully that you are getting the best deal. At the moment, both BT and Zen will supply the new router for free when you sign a contract with them.
 
The new service will be a little more expensive than the basic broadband deal you have now but the speed of your broadband will be far, far faster. However bear in mind that there is no compulsion to switch to the new service. Your existing basic broadband service will still be available through the existing phone line and you can keep using it as long as you like, and only switch to the new fibre to the premise service at your convenience.
 
 Some of you Moy folk have been spotted parked outside Strathdearn Hall, using the wifi there to catch up on urgent business. Soon the tables will be turned. You'd better remember to enable the password on your new superfast router, or you might look out your window to find the rest of Strathdearn parked outside your house!
