Independent Networks Goes Bust
By: MarkJ - 18 December, 2003 (12:59 PM)

Independent Networks has gone into receivership, resulting in roughly 200 rural West Midland broadband users being disconnected from the Internet:

Advantage West Midlands is a Regional Development Agency (RDA) that used public cash to help fund the project. Services in both areas only began in the Autumn.

In a statement Advantage West Midlands said that it "regrets the uncertainty caused to customers of these pilots brought about by the receivership. We are working with the receiver and with other interested parties to ensure continuity of service and a satisfactory outcome for all concerned."

The group was a provider for two Advantage West Midlands-funded rural broadband pilot projects in Leominster, Herefordshire and in the Bredon Hill area of Worcestershire. It remains to be seen whether anybody will resurrect the service. More @ The Register.
