Broadband - action required
Medbourne is fortunate that there will be two superfast broadband suppliers installing in the village: BT and Gigaclear. Whilst the BT installation is assured through public funding, the Gigaclear network is privately funded so it is dependent upon sufficient take-up within the village.
This is an important issue for the village because the Gigaclear fibre-to-the-property solution will future-proof the village as demands increase for broadband capacity. Please consult the latest Broadband Newsletter to fully understand the situation. Please do not delay in making a decision about the best solution for your property and for the village as a whole.
See also the Broadband page for more general information concerning broadband in Medbourne including all the newsletters on the subject.

Medbourne is an ancient village with a medieval stone bridge over a brook, a beautiful church and a traditional pub. Medbourne was originally a Roman settlement, on the route from Leicester to Colchester. The village lies in a valley carved out by the Medbourne Brook, which is a tributary of the river Welland.
Nowadays, Medbourne is a conservation area whose historic stone cottages, large elegant houses and leafy walks combine to make the village one of the most picturesque in the Welland Valley.
