Moy residents should read this before attending the Cadispa presentation meeting on 16th November (see also "Important Meeting for Moy Residents" below).

Dear Moy Residents,

One of the main concerns brought up by Moy residents in the recent CADISPA Study is the poor broadband. The slow broadband is having a negative impact on both local business and family life as broadband becomes an ever more important utility.

Currently BT Openreach, the main service provider has no plans to upgrade Moy as part of the Digital Scotland Programme during the first Phase. Although BT is a private company, there are no plans identified that would provide a better level of speed from the existing network thus improving service and has no current service level obligation to address this.

There has been discussion at UK level of introducing a Universal Service Obligation on Broadband which would require every premise to have access to a minimum of 10mbps. This is yet to be agreed and there are no timelines on this.  Therefore whilst change in the future may happen it does  leave the question as to how the service will be improved in near future, and whether we be proactive in driving change ourselves or simply wait for future developments in the network.  

Strathdearn Community Developments have been exploring the various options.
