In April 2021, Forest Economic Partnership signed a contract with Fastershire on behalf of the Cinderford Community to enable fibre broadband to be installed in over 500 properties across the town. These homes and businesses remain with poor broadband capability despite the widespread availability of fibre to the cabinet in the town.

Full Fibre Ltd were selected as the successful supplier and will use the project to extend their fibre services to nearly 4,000 other properties in the town commercially. These additional properties include the entirety of Ruspidge.

The build is currently underway and is expected to be completed by May 22.

The following link gives information of the build and opportunities for residents to sign up for build updates.

Also, please check your postcodes on the Fastershire website as some of the properties may already be enables for superfast broadband with other commercial providers.

You may need to change your package or provider to enable it.
