Wireless project to transport broadband to not-spots in Teesdale

Wireless project to transport broadband to not-spots in Teesdale

March 9, 2016

The trouble with the alternatives of DSL available over a twisted copper pair are that performance decreases the further from the exchange and cable broadband suffers from a concentration in built-up areas as well as little or no further network out build.

The consequence is the predicament that a multi-million pound project in the Teesdale and Weardale area is trying to address, i.e. sluggish or no broadband access is offered. The proposal is such that a system could be operational inside 15 months but this is all reliant on getting a grant from regional development agency One NorthEast. The Northern Echo website provides more background on what is happening in the area.

It is presumed that the article got its megabytes and mega bits per second befuddled, and actually means ultimate capacity may be 50 Mega bits per second (Mbps) with an opening speed of 10Mbps. Although a price of £20 to £30 a month may seem competitive for those who can get no service at all, the key question is how many in the region who can obtain a broadband service will pay this sort of money, numerous consumers are embracing products that are free or cost just £5 to £10 a month.
