A COMMUNITY broadband company which works in the area around a Ross village is on the lookout for new board directors.

Garve and District Broadband will be holding its last AGM with the current board this month, and has reached out to anyone who may be interested

Steve Jones, speaking on behalf of Garve and District Broadband said: "After four and a half years on this project, the current directors wish to stand down at the AGM.

"There are investigations going on currently to understand exactly the broadband speeds throughout Garve village. Despite all houses now being connected to the fibre box or the exchange, and the advertised speeds for all these houses on the BT website and the Digital Scotland website being at least 30 Mbps, there may be some properties that are not getting this sort of speed.

"Garve and District Broadband will not close down the company until these initial investigations have been concluded.

"Should there be a further project required for Garve village, possibly installing fibre to the premises, then this will have to be taken forward with a new board. Existing board members will of course be willing to help and advise. These projects are now a well trodden path for our community and for OpenReach."

Anyone interested in a place on the board should email garveanddistrictbroadband@gmail.com by the end of the month.
