    Ok. I have an AREA code of 01455 in Desford, Leicestershire, East Midlands, England.

    Broadband can be enabled and our college and libery has a T1 connection so general interest should be quiet high. But it's not.

    About 179 people out of 300 have registered interest.

    How can I get that figure to 300? Any suggestions are welcome.

    I might go around posting leeflet, what you recomend I put on them. Should I post information in the Parish Council? For old folk to tell there sons?

    Any information to get broadband interest in this area is welcomed.

    Ask your council to promote the idea of pre-registration, put up some posters with information, give people flyers/leaflets and/or post them through peoples doors.

    It worked for us here. We received the final push of people we needed to reach the trigger level after a small leaflet campaign took place. Still need to wait 3 months or so after the level is reached though.
