Broadband without brakes

Broadband without brakes

To coincide with the Tour of Britain cycle race stage across Cheshire in September, Connecting Cheshire has lined up as a stage sponsor and launched a “broadband without brakes” campaign.

The campaign will help to drive the take-up of the additional fibre broadband across the county funded by the Connecting Cheshire Partnership of 4 local authorities and features our Fibre Guy characters.

Using the analogy of comparing cycling uphill on slow broadband to speeding downhill with superfast fibre broadband, the campaign will explain how to upgrade to faster broadband and that in most cases upgrading can work out cheaper due to competition in the broadband provider market.

We will be attending the following community cycling events:

June 2016

12th – Pedal Power Festival, Northwich.

25thBike Chester

Plus the Royal Cheshire County and Nantwich Shows plus at the start and finish of the Tour of Britain Cheshire stage on 6th September.

 

Tour de Bottle Competition

Win £100 in iTunes gift card and a Fibre Guys cycling jersey. Simply attend one of our events, pick-up one of our Broadband without brakes drinks bottles and Tweet us a photo of where your bottle has got to over the summer (preferably on a bike!) for the chance to win. The most original locations and pictures will be added to our Flickr gallery. Closing date Friday 26th August.
