Residents of Winwick and Burtonwood who find current broadband speeds are lacking, now have the option of a wireless service that can run at up to 60 Mbps. Vispa was invited by Warrington Borough Council to roll-out its wireless service in the area, and has in the last week connected its first customers in the area.
A range of packages are available, a 10 Mbps service for £19.95 a month with a 100 GB peak time allowance, increasing the monthly fee to £29.95 increases speeds to up to 60 Mbps and doubles the peak usage allowance. For business and SOHO there are other options, including a 1:1 contention service. For those that don't want to worry about watching a usage meter, an unlimited option is available for £5 on all the products.
Unlike some wireless services which cost several hundred pound to install, the installation fee is a reasonable £99 (when taking an 18 month contract) which includes fitting the external antenna and wireless router. A 01925 area code VoIP account is included, which means people can potentially ditch their copper telephone line, saving on the monthly line rental.
