Meeting to get highspeed broadband!

Wireless Community Broadband Project

A meeting with an ISP to discuss this has been arranged for 6.00 pm

Wednesday 15th September 2010 Treuddyn Village Hall (CH7 4LU)

We are striving to bring a wireless broadband solution to our community to provide a service to those people who currently receive no broadband and also to provide an alternative to the existing broadband services available.

We have several areas dotted throughout our community where, due to geographic restrictions, it is not possible to receive conventional broadband via existing telephone wires either due to the distance from the telephone exchange or due to the type of telephone wiring used. As we are now in an age where the Internet is fast becoming a major delivery channel for the commercial, social and educational aspects of our lives to be without broadband is a serious and frustrating problem for lots of people.

To try and remove this barrier we have been working with the Welsh Assembly Government and commercial companies to bring broadband via a wireless network into our community. By using wireless technology we can bring high speed broadband (around 10mbps) into our community which will both remove the Notspot areas (those who cannot receive broadband) and provide a significant speed increase over existing broadband product offerings.

Notspot users (those on low broadband speeds of less than 512kbps) can qualify for support from the Welsh Assembly Government and this can be used to help fund a community scheme.

To ensure that the project is a success, we will need the community to come together to help provide us with the information we need to be able to determine whether delivery of wireless broadband is commercially viable. It is very important therefore to capture as many peoples thoughts and preferences on the broadband they have (if any) and what they would like from wireless broadband to enable us to put together a business case.

Please try and help us by spending a few minutes completing  the survey, it really will make a difference to the scheme and may make the ultimate difference to the project going ahead, at the end of the day it really is your input that counts.

Thanks very much,
