BLAZE Wireless Plan 100Mbps Broadband Service for Arun Valley

Monday, July 27th, 2015 (4:33 pm) - Score 929
blaze_wireless

Hybrid fibre optic and wireless broadband ISP BLAZE Wireless has announced that their network, which launched last year with coverage around parts of Chichester in West Sussex (here), now looks set to be expanded to reach slowspots in the Arun Valley area.

Apparently the provider, which received “significant demand” in the region, has already finished an “extensive appraisal of the proposed network coverage and completed a technical survey of the infrastructure required to implement the service“.

At present there’s no project ETA, although Sussex Police have agreed in principal to BLAZE’s plan for installing their equipment on their existing masts at Burton Down. Once delivered consumers would pay £80 for the needed hardware (add £65 for it professionally installed), plus a £25 connection fee and then the packages start at £29 per month for a 15Mbps service with a 35GB usage allowance.

Sadly the top 90-100Mbps package only comes with a 110GB usage allowance and yet this would set you back £77 per month, although don’t forget that there’s no need to pay phone line rental on top. Never the less it’s not cheap, although the speeds are symmetrical. Credits to Thinkbroadband for spotting the update.

    This is tremendous news for those of us on long lines in West Sussex. Parts of the coverage area can at present only get around 500Kbps on ADSL lines up to 5 miles from their exchange. The coverage area is quite large extending from the coast to inland areas such as Pulborough, Petworth and Billingshurst.

    That blaze logo looks awfully familiar.. http://www.theblaze.com/

    yes the logo is very similar 😀

    The coverage is based on a theoretical coverage map that takes terrain into account. it does not know about the foliage though so it is a rather “forward sounding statement” .

    I am qualified to say this , having operated wireless networks within rural West Sussex for over 10 years.

    We will see if the Brown family pull this off in due course?
