Bird Watchers Boosted by New 50Mbps Wireless Service in Langstrothdale

Friday, Jun 14th, 2013 (8:39 am) - Score 368

LN Communications has this week expanded the coverage of its up to 50Mbps fixed wireless broadband network to the valley of Langstrothdale in North Yorkshire (England) which, aside from helping to connect several local villages, has also enabled wildlife watchers to access live CCTV streams of their cameras.

The valley of Langstrothdale typically includes the villages of Hubberholme, Yockenthwaite and Oughtershaw. A field centre for the new CCTV project has also been setup at Nethergill Farm, which offers B&B accommodation, in Oughtershaw.

The local Kettlewell School, which resides around 5 miles away from the field centre, is now trialling the project. The idea is designed to encourage school children to get involved in using ICT to connect to Nethergill Farm’s CCTV cameras enabling them to view live images from within the hide and nesting boxes across the farm.

Chris Clark, Owner of Nethergill Farm and the Field Centre, said:

What we are trying to do here at the Farm is show the link between food, farming and the environment. We have all three elements working together here at our centre and believe that it is important that we increase knowledge on how vital they are for the future of farming. We are excited about the CCTV camera project which we can now connect to any school across the globe, thanks to the superfast broadband connection we now enjoy here in the valley.”

The effort also forms part of the North Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority’s (NYDNPA) new 5-year Management Plan, which among other things aims to ensure that the whole area has access to a minimum broadband speed of 2Mbps (Megabits per second) by 2015.

Martyn Boswell, LNComms Managing Director, said:

We will continue to connect residents and businesses in the Langstrothdale Valley during the coming weeks so that people previously unable to connect to the internet can do so with the same speeds as enjoyed in the urban areas. We look forward to hearing more stories of benefits of our network from local residents such as the Nethergill Project, which we think is a fantastic initiative for the local community.”

Internet access packages from the LNComms ISP ILoveBroadband currently start at £14.99 inc. VAT per month for a 10Mbps (2Mbps upload) service with “unlimited” usage (Fair Use Policy) and a 12 month contract. The top 30Mbps (10Mbps upload) package costs £24.99 and includes the ability to “burst” its connection speed up to 50Mbps. Plus installation will set you back £90.
