Broadband Options

Not happy with your broadband speeds now the Parwich exchange is fibre optic enabled, then read this important information from Parwich Parish Council. Those in Alsop may be especially interested!

Broadband in Parwich

Digital Derbyshire would like residents to know that a fibre enabled cabinet is now operational in Parwich. For those who can still not get better than a 2Mbps connection the links in the letter will take you to further information on applying for a subsidy to get a satellite or wireless based internet connection.
