West Berkshire Community Broadband

West Berkshire Community Broadband was born out of a desperate need for better connectivity across the communities of Sulhamstead and Ufton Nervet including the School, Greens, Hamlets and isolated homes within the parish. 


We are a business run on a not for profit basis by a team of volunteers which means all the money goes into providing a great service.


While we know that there is a high speed fibre solution coming to the main areas of the parish in a couple of years, we have no committed dates and it is likely that only the higher population areas will be provided with service.


We are starting off with providing a 100Mb/s service shared across the community. This is a dedicated service that will provide a service that is comparable or better for each user than a 100Mb/s residential service provided by BT.
