Here in a small village in Hampshire, our only option of getting anything over 5-6Mps is to fund our own solution. We've received two quotes from BT to perform this work, but due to the costs, adding a single cabinet at the beginning of the lane is the only viable option. Even then, it'll cost each of us around £1500 per household to get 25Mbps.
We've struck a rather sore point with the local estate managers, in that they are likely to insist on an additional fee for us to put the cabinet on the shared land - something that hasn't gone down well with the community as it's seen as pure blackmail.
I would like to start investigating other alternatives than fibre, particularly wireless ones that would not have the same issues as above.
We have little to no 3G/4G connection for mobile phones, so that isn't really an option (plus the unlimited data cost of 4G would be prohibitive at the moment).
I've looked into a microwave links but it appears line of sight is needed and we're in a slight dip which might be difficult.
What else can I be looking into?
