Rural Newton and Stape UK Get 10Mbps Wireless Broadband Service

Posted: 16th Feb, 2010 By: MarkJ
newton and stape ukFibrestream's strategic partnership (NextGenUs) has hailed the success of its latest broadband coverage project in the rural villages of Newton and Stape (two adjoining parishes in deeply rural North Yorkshire). Residents can now benefit from download and upload speeds of up to 10Mbps.

The situation use to be very different, with conventional broadband coverage being effectively non-existent for the majority of the villages 140+ homes and businesses. All that has now changed thanks to a methodology that Fibrestream calls FiWi (Fibre and Wireless).

The NextGenUs FiWi network essentially takes a symmetric (same speed both ways) fixed line fibre-optic direct internet access feed from a school 20km away and runs it over to the villages, from where service is locally distributed using wireless technology.

NextGenUs Blog Master GuyJ said:

"NextGenUs UK CIC, in partnership with NYCC, NYNet, the Parish Council and local community ISP Beeline Broadband, has designed and deployed a Next Generation Notspot elimination network that reaches beyond merely meeting the Digital Britain 2Mbps USC to enable the local community to leapfrog to speeds of up to 10Mbps symmetric today and offers the future-proof capacity to move to 100Mbps symmetric and beyond as demand grows.

The project is an innovative example of how public, private and community sectors can come together and provide an answer to connectivity Notspots, a solution that provides the local community with the crucial CIC assurance that they are not simply swapping one monopoly service provider for another and instead are gaining a service that puts people first over commercial profits."

In addition NextGenUs UK CIC is bound by regulation to reinvest the surplus generated from operating the network. They intend to do that by deploying faster Fibre-to-the-Home ( FTTH ) fibre optic broadband connections to local residents and businesses over the course of 2010.
