Bring Fibre Broadband to Coopers Mill, Dundonald

This petition made change with 169 supporters!


I am currently a resident at Coopers Mill in Dundonald, Co. Antrim. Coopers Mill is one of the most popular new developments in Northern Ireland and recently won the Gold Award for Best Starter Home beating off competition from across the UK, including all the major house-builders. With over 300 of these exciting new properties it is baffling that Superfast Fibre Optic Broadband is not available at the development.

Openreach have stated that Coopers Mill is not a commercially viable location to provide Superfast Broadband at this time and there are no plans to provide it in the future. Again this is baffling to say that such a large and modern development (which is still growing) would not be a good option for Superfast Broadband.

I have tried contacting BT directly about this as well as the Castlereagh Council but unfortunately both parties have stated there is nothing they can do to help and they are at the mercy of Openreach's prerogative.

I am starting this petition to show Openreach that their decision was wrong and in fact Coopers Mill IS a commercially viable location to install Fibre Option Broadband as many of the residents would upgrade to Fibre if given the opportunity.

So if you live in the Coopers Mill area and want the experience of Superfast Broadband please sign this petition. Please also register your interest directly with Openreach too by filling in the form here.
