Thanks to the sterling efforts of Westcot residents Maia S & Justin D, and a government and Oxfordshire Council voucher scheme, all Sparsholt & Westcot residents (not just some of Westcot) can now order 'UltraFast' or FTTP (fibre to the property) connections, which can provide download speeds of up to ~900Mbps.

Note that only certain internet service providers (ISPs) can provide Ultrafast fibre internet services - your current ISP may not be able to provide FTTP.

Here are two ISPs that do currently provide FTTP services and a link where you can check further availability and costs:-

Costs range from ~£35 a month and upwards, depending on the speed provided. Delivery is usually 2-6 weeks.

When ordering or upgrading, you should check with your provider about how they will handle your current telephone line and number, as Ultrafast broadband does not usually include a landline phone connection as standard.
