The WiSpire project, which deploys faster rural broadband by installing wireless internet transmitters on top of local church spires in Norfolk (England, UK), has confirmed that its service is now available in the two civil parish villages of Ashill and Carbrooke.
The scheme is a constructive joint venture between the Diocese of Norwich and ISP FreeClix. Residents who adopt the service can expect to pay from £13 per month (£59 to install) for an entry-level 4Mbps (0.5Mbps uploads) package that includes a small usage allowance of 2GB on a 30 day contract. The top unlimited usage package with speeds of up to 8Mbps will set you back £25.
It’s by no means perfect or superfast but those with sub-2Mbps connections tend to welcome the extra speed.
