Broadband Cancellation Fees for Armed Forces Personnel

Broadband providers drop cancellation fees for armed forces personnel.

Mark Lancaster, Minister for Defence Veterans, Reserves and Personnel has announced that armed forces personnel will no longer have to face cancellation fees for their broadband and media packages when posted overseas or to another part of the UK not covered by their current provider. The commitment from the UK’s biggest broadband providers representing 95 per cent of Britain’s broadband market comes into force immediately, and will benefit tens of thousands of forces households in the UK and abroad. The change agreed to under the tenets of the Armed Forces Covenant includes BT, EE, Plusnet, Talk Talk and Virgin Media, who have all committed to treating military personnel fairly when cancelling their contracts. Up until now, members of the armed forces deployed overseas or to different part of the UK not covered by their provider could be forced to pay a cancellation fee. They will no longer have to face this cost and be disadvantaged due to the mobile nature of service life The Minister for Defence Veterans, Reserves and Personnel said: “Our armed forces are sent all over the world and across the country to help keep our country safe and they should never be disadvantaged because of this. The removal of cancellation fees by leading broadband providers is yet another example of the Covenant in action, which is making sure our brave personnel are treated fairly. It’s a welcome move and we’re looking forward to seeing what more British businesses can do to support our military.” The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or have previously served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly and not disadvantaged by their service. Delivery partners include businesses and trade bodies, charities and community organisations, local authorities and government departments.

A Message from the Ground staff for Dog Owners

It has been brought to our attention that some dog owners are using the general waste bins located around both play areas to dispose of dog waste. All the rubbish from these bins is classed as contaminated and is having to be placed in a different bin which is creating extra costs. This money could be spent elsewhere for the good and benefit of the soldiers. 

Please take the waste home or use the appropriate dog waste bins which are located at 

 Wade Ave ( near roundabout)
 Top of Wade Ave ( Near garages)
 Hadrian Crescent (opposite Officers Mess)
 Gate 7 of the Air field.
