We’re on track to have wireless broadband available to all our residents in all our buildings by April this year. Because this is a new service, existing tenants will have to pay an extra £18 per month for it except at Anson and Carleton where a charge is already added to their rent. Whilst £18 per month may seem a higher charge than some providers are making you won’t need a telephone line to receive it so in fact the package is very competitively priced.
Please let us know if you are interested in signing up for the new Broadband service by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
The new bike store at Jerome is now in use and we have improved security by upgrading all flat door locks and installing CCTV.
We will be installing CCTV at Anson and Carleton following a spate of bicycle thefts.
We should complete the refurbishment of the common hallways at Sentosa by late February 2016.
Contacting Zebra for Maintenance
And please don’t contact our Maintenance Supervisor, Steve Brickwood who is unfortunately unwell and not at work at present.
Our Board is setting our budgets on 23 February so if you’ve got ideas for projects on which we should spend it let us know now. We have two big projects we’re planning next year – these are putting a new roof on Jeannine and improving the heating at Jerome. But there’s still room for some other projects. Let us know by contacting email@example.com
The roll out is moving ahead well with cabling finished at Jerome, Sentosa and Impala (by 10 February). Cabling at Jeannine should start around 15th February. We’ll let you know when you will actually be able to access it and hopefully it will be available to most residents from March 2016.
It’s going to take slightly longer to get the service running at Jerome because we have to put a fibre-optic cable in to give greater broadband capacity to support all the new users. This has now been scheduled for early March and so we believe the new service should be available from April.
Existing tenants will have to make an additional payment to us of £18 per month for the service and new tenants will automatically pay this in with their rent and have immediate access to the service.
