Rural Kinmuck Village in Scotland Gain Faster Wireless Broadband

Residents and businesses in the isolated rural village of Kinmuck in Scotland (Aberdeenshire) can now access broadband internet download speeds of up to 30Mbps (Megabits per second), thanks to a new fixed wireless network.

The Kinmuck Community Broadband Project (KCBP), which started life in the spring of this year, was built by Sitenett Systems. The network is fuelled by a microwave link back to Aberdeen, which thanks to fresh investment via Big Lottery Funding has recently been upgraded to support 100Mbps connectivity. This is then distributed out to premises via a local mast.

Latest KCBP Status Update

The Kinmuck Community broadband Service now can offer super fast broadband speeds. Our Gold service now runs at 30 meg per second symmetrical. This service is primarily aimed at business users.

Our Silver service runs at 8 meg per second down, and 2 meg per second up. And our Bronze service runs at 5 meg down, and 750k up.

The back haul circuit and network have been given a bit of a boost by increased back haul speeds, and how all services run at very low contention ratios.

The community previously suffered from woeful speeds via BT’s old fixed line network and are already looking towards a number of future improvements that could deliver even faster services. Credits to Thinkbroadband for spotting this development.
