Connecting Communities


Hi everyone,

We hope you are all enjoying the glorious summer weather as much as we do! It certainly makes our site surveying a little easier.

During the past 3 weeks we have been surveying premises in the Ardgour area with a few more to do when people return from holidays.

It certainly was lovely to meet our “neighbours” from across the loch. We have identified connection options, measured up the required cabling, recorded specific installation requests, and we are rather pleased with the results so far.

At our July meeting, we had the pleasure to confirm we will be extending our service to Glenfinnan.


the A830 side of Loch Eil, from Banavie to Gairlochy, Achnacarry, Bunarkaig & Clunes AND Glenfinnan.

The leased line has been installed but needs to be tested and connected by a different BT team. We received a CDD of 23/07/13 for the line but this has yet to be confirmed. After this, the line will go live and will run on the pilot scheme to check for possible issues.

We will start installations in the week commencing 26th of August.

What we will be offering:

– an internet connection with a connection speed of 20Mb max. to start with.

What it will cost you:

– £75 installation fee (subject to survey) – £15/month subscription fee

What happens next:

  • Either call us on 01397 773128 or e-mail us at

  • We will put you on the “survey” list and contact you to arrange a date for a survey. During that survey we will record your contact details, installation details (preferred location, router, etc.) and provide you with our order documentation, including terms and conditions which you can read at your leisure.

  • This survey information will allow us to plan the actual installation and work around any issues that may occur. We will also be able to advise you if there will be extra costs (when you are living in a hard to get area) and if your router is suitable for this high speed connection or will need replacing. You will then have the opportunity to place your actual order.

  • The installation team will arrange an installation appointment with you.
