Vispa Extend 250Mbps Wireless Broadband to More Cheshire UK Homes

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016 (1:38 am) - Score 2,543

Several new locations in the county of Cheshire (England) could soon benefit from a 250Mbps (Megabits per second) capable superfast CityWireless broadband network from UK ISP Vispa, which has confirmed that they’re extending their reach beyond the original Warrington area.

The “Fibre to the Mast” (FTTM) wireless service has been around for a few years now and is powered by kit from Ubiquiti Networks (UBNT), although we had feared that the ever expanding reach of BT and Virgin Media’s superfast fixed line networks might dent their progress. However the good news is that Vispa are now moving into expansion mode again.

So far as we can tell they’re already in the process of going live and beginning the first home installations around Mottram St Andrew, which is a more rural area. At the same time they also appear to be expanding into the more urban location of Newton in Chester.

Meanwhile the network is preparing to go live in other locations like Rainow, Strines, Gawsworth and Macclesfield, all of which appear to represent an interesting mix of both rural and urban locations. Perhaps the service should be renamed to CityRuralWireless 😉 . A mix of trials and live service installs are expected to begin in these areas during May – June 2016.

Prices typically start at just £19.95 inc. VAT per month (remember there’s no fixed line rental to pay on top) for a basic 10Mbps download / 2Mbps upload service with a peak-time usage allowance of 100GB (unlimited off-peak), free wireless router, static IP address and 12 or 24 month contract term (installation costs from £99).

By comparison Vispa’s 60Mbps (2Mbps upload) package offers 200GB usage for £29.95 and you can get 500GB for £39.95 (this option also adds 10Mbps uploads). A business grade 250Mbps option also exists, but you have to request a special quote for it. Sadly there are no “unlimited” use packages.
