Rural broadband

At last broadband is seen as an essential service like water and electricity. Rural areas, and some areas in towns and cities, are to get a service for the first time or at higher speeds. I have been forced to use satellite broadband through tooway but, though very much better than landline, this has not been without its problems. There is no point in looking to BT or politicians to enable a decent service. Despite paying the same taxes, country dwellers are falling further and further behind. One solution is to start a private fibre project like the one by B4RN (Broadband For the Rural North). You can read about it by clicking the first option below.
