Welcome to heathhayes.net.

This is a local community site for the town of Heath Hayes in Cannock, Staffordshire. The web address has been dormant for quite a few years now but is still kept for any future projects we may start. Last time was for getting broadband in our town, some of you may remember walking the streets posting leaflets to gain interest.

Well this is now why I have decided to bring a site back. It seems our town and also Cannock as a whole are being left behind in terms of broadband speeds and availability. Were stuck with BT, yes some may use other providers like Sky / Talk Talk but were still using the BT telephone line to receive our service. This also makes it tough to have options for TV providers. We either have Sky or BT.

I will be looking for people to help spread interest in faster internet services. Hopefully we can persuade Virgin Media to start putting cables into our town. All other area’s near us have cable, why doesn’t Cannock?

Burntwood, Lichfield, Stafford, Rugeley, Telford, Wolverhampton, Bloxwich, Walsall all have cable. Surely it wouldn’t be that hard for them to fill the gap, and all a lot of subscribers along the way. Virgin Media offer 200MBps services, the current maximum we can have on BT is 76MBps and thats if you live on top of the cabinet.

 

Keep a check on the site over the next few weeks. I will add more info and idea’s for moving forwards.
