It enables people to get internet speeds of 24Megabits per second or more – making streaming TV, working from home, online banking and shopping, and gaming a lot easier – to name just some of the benefits.
THRUXTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
Minutes of recent meetings of the Parish Council Advisory Group on the Thruxton Neighbourhood Plan are available to read. See Neighbourhood Plan Section
