Good news! Superfast broadband is now available in the High Street and Bleachfield Street areas of Alcester. Cabinet Alcester 17 has been upgraded, meaning that properties connected to the upgraded cabinet may now be able to order the improved service.
For residents to check which cabinet you are connected to and what speeds you might achieve, you should visit https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/. For the best results you will need to be able to enter a BT landline number for the property. If you do not have this then you can use your address, but it may be less accurate. It should be noted that customers are not restricted to buying a service from BT and that you can go to any Internet Service Provider (ISP).
There are a number of different Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and it is best to check carefully as there are a wide range of packages available, with some including telephone calls and even TV options. Websites like MoneySavingExpert.com and Broadband Genie can give free, impartial advice on cheap broadband deals and provide information on which packages might be best for specific needs.
The ‘About Broadband’ section on the CSW Broadband website has lots of information about Internet Service Providers, a very useful jargon buster to help you get through the sometimes baffling terms surrounding broadband, and lots of self-help guides so that you can get the most from the new, improved service.
