Rural broadband failing to deliver

The need for better rural broadband has been underlined by a Norfolk Rural Community Council poll.

A recent survey has found that 84% of respondents have a lack of broadband access which they consider insufficient/a problem, with only 4% saying that they were ‘well connected with good access to services and communications linking people to jobs, health and other services.’ More than 60% of respondents said that lack of broadband was an ‘important’ or ‘very important’ issue.

Wireless internet provider ThinkingWISP could help. The service delivers reliable broadband across 90% of Norfolk and much of Waveney and as the broadband is broadcast wirelessly and picked up using a small aerial, homes and businesses can benefit even if their location means that their current internet speed is very slow.

ThinkingWISP offers a choice of home and business packages ranging from 3 to 10Mbps from just £15.99 per month.  The internet speeds are not ‘up to’ speeds, but actual speeds which will be received, which is backed by a 30 day money back guarantee. A BT line is also not required, giving a further opportunity to save line rental costs.

One Anglia Farmers member who is benefiting from ThinkingWISP is former AF director, Jim Alston, who farms in Calthorpe, North Norfolk. Before signing up to ThinkingWISP Jim received an internet speed of just 1Mbps but with ThinkingWISP he now reliably receives an internet speed of 6 Mbps.

Jim said: “The speed and reliability of my broadband connection is much improved with ThinkingWISP. Slow internet is no longer a problem with ThinkingWISP and I would recommend it to other members.  It’s been a reliable service and works at a speed that means we can do everything we need to on the internet.”
