The demand for sfbb
The Demand for SFBB

2 Mbps is no longer enough

iPlayer, ITV player and other on demand TV applications, Netflix, Love Film, YouTube, on-line gaming

For now it appears to be an urban revolution

Not a commercial economic prospect for many rural areas

Nothing for Abthorpe and Slapton in the foreseeable future

For ABbA it was change or die


Could we make a case for sfbb

The communities of Abthorpe, Slapton, Wappenham, Weston and Lois Weedon fitted together.
