ITSwisp Brings 8Mbps Wireless Broadband to Rural Norfolk and Suffolk

Monday, Nov 19th, 2012 (11:06 am) - Score 2,128

A wireless broadband ISP called ITSwisp, which appears to be an off-shoot of another local provider ThinkingWISP, has launched to deliver internet download speeds of up to 8Mbps (Megabits per second) to “serve large areas around” rural Norfolk and Suffolk in England (UK).

The ISP, which claims to have “big plans to expand“, currently serves the areas in and around Norwich, Beccles & Bungay, Fakenham, Holt, Caister, Wymondham and Attleborough.

ITSwisp Service Details

The wireless broadband system designed by InTouch Systems, uses radio waves from a transmitter at the InTouch offices at 36 Hurricane Way, Norwich. From here wireless broadband is sent across the county to Raveningham, Caister and Bodham, where the service can be received by local businesses and homes within a certain radius.

A sister project ThinkingWISP the Wireless Broadband Project for Norfolk was also developed over the last year by InTouch Systems, in partnership with the Norfolk Rural Community Council (NRCC) and AF Affinity, a subsidiary of Anglia Farmers agricultural buying group in Honingham Thorpe, near Norwich.

Homes and businesses using this wi-fi technology do not need a phone line and have a choice of two itswisp package types (HOME or BUSINESS) each with a choice of broadband speeds.

Transmitters on the mast then broadcast the signal in all directions to small aerials, which are fixed on to properties.

Unfortunately the provider’s packages aren’t going to win any awards for speed, price or flexibility, although they could help those who currently struggle to even get a 1-2Mbps connection. Prices start at £19.99 inc. VAT per month for their ‘Home 3000’ package, which offers download speeds of up to 3Mbps (0.5Mbps uploads) and a 5GB usage allowance. But an 8Mbps (1Mbps upload) connection with a 30GB allowance will set you back £31.99. Credits to Thinkbroadband for spotting this news.
