A simple speed check on your broadband could help Oxfordshire County Council build a case for speedier internet and, in the short term, could help you decide whether you are getting the best value for money.

Taking part is easy:

1. Check your internet speed at a site such as This will tell you not only your own broadband speed, but that of anyone else in the neighbourhood who has taken the test.

2. Put in the results on the short survey to be found at

The OxOnline project set up to take advantage of the government's Broadband Delivery UK initiative aims to bring improved broadband speeds to the area by 2015. As the most rural county in the South East, there is a danger that Oxfordshire will be left behind as broadband providers concentrate on more lucrative urban areas. Your survey contributions will help the council demonstrate a demand for improved service using evidence not available to them in any other way.

Faster broadband is now available in Wallingford, but BT have told villagers that it is not economically viable to extend it to Brightwell. They advise people to fill in the County  Council survey, and also to register their interest via the open reach website.
