Oxfordshire Broadband Partnership

Whilst campaigning for broadband ORB led the way and tried to get the local authorities, business and the communities to create a partnership to ensure that we could future proof broadband and ensure as technology improved the mainly rural community of Oxfordshire did not get left behind.

The initial meeting in 2004 at West Oxfordshire district council’s offices fell on deaf ears but in late 2005 Oxfordshire County Council changed their minds and under a SEEDA banner, the partnership was created and was able to distribute some grant funding, see http://www.oxbroadband.co.uk
