The good news is that Mayfield will get a faster broadband service next year (2014) with the announcement that it is once of the first exchanges in Sussex to be selected for fibre-connection.
It is likely that is will be the autumn before the effects will be noted and we are still waiting for details of how local cabinets will be upgraded. But having a date in 2014 is a bonus since I had been concerned that it might take several years for Mayfield to be put on the list.

I meant to post this a few months but somehow it slipped off the to-do list.
