Update on FREE Sandgate Wireless Broadband
By David Cowell, Sandgate Community Trust
Following extensive testing I am now confident that the broadband signals in zones 1 and 2 are working well. If you have registered with CommunityUK in the past or wish to register for free broadband now could you do so?
As a reminder:
- You need to look for a WiFi signal beginning "CUK" from your WiFi devices and connect to it. In some areas, you may see more than one. In these circumstances, simply connect to the strongest signal that you see.
- Once your WiFi connection is established, you should open your Internet browser and attempt to visit any website, you will then be redirected to the CommunityUK page and asked to log on with your Username and Password as normal or register if you have yet to do so.
Once this process is completed, you will be taken to the new Sandgate CommunityUK Web Portal which I urge you to look around, familiarise yourselves with and contribute to.
If you experience any difficulties, please do not hesitate to call the Support Department on 0845 508 4944 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be pleased to provide you with assistance.
Note: There will still be some places in Sandgate that will not receive the signal - do let us know if that is your area. The setting up of hosting sites in west Sandgate starts this week.
