COMMUNITY OIL SYNDICATE
Sadly the last days of summer are with us and cooler days and nights are just around the corner so it's a good time to start thinking about the cost of heating.
Last month members of the Warwickshire Community Oil Synicate saved £58.80 per 1000 litres against the average market price, paying just 55.75 pence per litre of heating oil. How did your supplier compare?
Our bulk LPG members are saving between £150 and £260 per annum and we are also able to offer great savings and free delivery on LPG cylinders.
If you would like to find out more about reducing the cost of your heating oil or making a saving on your LPG please email email@example.com or call Sarah Brooke-Taylor on 01789 472611.
CSW HIGH SPEED BROADBAND PROJECT
As you will already have read, the CSW broadband project entered into a £14.57m contract with BT in June this year. The money will be spent on bringing improved broadband to those areas that will not be uplifted through the commercial plans of BT and other providers. The targets for the project are 100% coverage at the Universal Service Commitment (a minimum of 2Mbps, which could in practice be up to 23 Mbps), and 90% coverage at Superfast speeds, which is over 24Mbps. Some areas will get considerably more than 24Mbps, and the actual speed achieved depends on a number of factors such as geography, topography, current infrastructure etc
As soon as the contract was signed CSW published maps giving indicative locations for the rollout of superfast broadband under the current funding, although it is not possible at this stage to be specific as there is a considerable amount of work taking place to determine what will be possible on the ground. This work involves looking at the existing network, which has grown up in a piecemeal fashion over a number of years. In some cases, therefore, it is likely that the fibre will follow a different route from the existing copper network. This will not affect telephone/voice services.
So, watch this space!
