SEIS Advance Approval Received

Great news – we’ve received advance approval from the HMRC for our share offer. This means that under the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme, eligible investors should be able to receive a tax rebate of 50% of the amount they invest. So if you invest £1,000 you should get a £500 tax rebate!

Fibre Blowing Demo

Great news – we’ve arranged for a demonstration of the fibre optic ducting at our launch meetings on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th January.

Simon Wade from Emtelle will be joining us to explain their microduct system and to answer our questions.  He’s also planning a demonstration of how the fibre optic cables are blown through the ducting.   We could all be experts by the end of the weekend!

This is how to do it!

BruceWe recently joined over 80 people from other community broadband groups at the B4RN/Emtelle “Show and Tell Day” in Lancashire.  The B4RN network is much more ambitious than our scheme and they have already connected over 1,200 customers with 100 more joining every month!

There are some photos from the day available –>Here<--so you can see just what is involved.
