Teesdale UK to Build Fast 20Mbps Wireless Broadband Network by 2011

Posted: 09th Feb, 2010 By: MarkJ
uk mapThe Digital Dale project, a partnership of local businesses, residents and government agencies, has selected Networks by Wireless to build a superfast 20Mbps WiMAX wireless broadband network for Teesdale by late 2011. Currently only 12.3% of people in the district have broadband; the lowest take-up rate in the whole country.

Deborah Jenkins, chairwoman of Barnard Castle Vision, told the Teesdale Mercury newspaper:

"This project is hugely exciting and looks set to transform Teesdale’s ability to compete on an equal basis with urban and city centre locations as places to live, work and visit"

Barnard Castle Vision is currently busy securing funding for the building, maintenance and operation of the network. Networks by Wireless could start work as soon as March, provided the cash can be confirmed.

Prices for the service are expected to start at £20 per month for a slower basic package (+£50 one-off connection fee). The network will cover some 12,000 homes and 1,000 commercial premises.
