Its not just individuals and businesses that can benefit from fast broadband speeds.  Here are some ways in which broadband can help the life of our communities: 
  • Showcase your community on a website that brings together events and local information for residents, visitors etc
  • Some shops and cafes now have WiFi hot spots- useful for working on the move
  • Read minutes of Parish & Town Councils on their websites
  • Some community buildings and village halls have WiFi or can provide broadband connection for hirers
  • E-newsletters and mailings save postage and printing for community groups
  • Keep in contact with your group by email and continue discussions between meetings
  • In emergency situations send a quick alert via email, Twitter or posted on websites
  • Maintain easy links to other similar organisations
  • Find out what other communities are doing by searching the world wide web
  • Use web-based tools to easily arrange meetings, run consultations and polls and find out what people think about local issues
  • Share photos and film clips from community events and meetings in your community
  • Run an IT club for those wanting to learn about digital technology
