Wireless brings faster broadband to two villages in North Yorkshire
Monday 28 November 2011 14:32:30 by Andrew Ferguson

Connecting North Yorkshire has made available via an initiative a fixed wireless service in the villages of Great Ouseburn and Little Ouseburn in North Yorkshire.

The service ran by LN Broadband offers symmetrical speeds, with a 5 Mbps and 10 GB usage allowance costing £12.99 a month, and the fastest residential package being 20 Mbps with unlimited (Fair Use Policy applies) usage at £23.99. A price of £1 per GB is charged on the packages with an allowance once it is exceeded.

As the quote on ISPreview reveals, this is not a BDUK project, but was funded by money from a Performance Reward Grant. A key point to the project is that only areas that showed enough interest would get the service, and the two villages collected double the required number of fifty registrations.

For the rest of North Yorkshire, a pilot county, progress is slow bar a few small wirless links off NYCC or YDNP network backbone. N Yorkshire seems to have more than its fair share of BT aluminium cable well past its sell by date so even villages that could have broadband if served by copper are denied service by BT using way out date technology.
