Oakdown now offers a network of wifi repeaters around the Park. Oakdown has made a large investment into this project, having had many obstacles to jump its been a timely process, the wifi network is supplied via a satellite location on the Park, internet speeds from the local exchange just couldn’t cope with the demand, we are currently installing extra repeaters in areas where there is limited coverage, so be sure to check the availability before purchasing a voucher. (Due to Oakdown’s Rural setting signal strength can be intermittent)
