Re: Alternative options for a Hampshire village


[re: Beaulieu] [link to this post]
 
Afternoon,

One thing that you may wish to consider is not actually using a mast to deliver the service, if you was to install a leased line to one of the premises then you could look to distribute the connection from that property with a wireless device attached to the highest point of the property.

If all the properties are within a mile you should be able to add a wirelss receive to each property and share the connection that way.

We have done this previously in areas that are not in the rollout plans for superfast broadband & worked out quite cost effect for each household / business.

Thanks
Jamie

Sounds like Dock Lane, if so there are a lot of trees that may block line of sight for radio for a number of the houses.

The verge opposite the Bus (?) shelter looks like the only place to put a cab that is not in the private lane, there is actually a street light there as well which would cut down the power costs.

But speed would still not be good for those at the end of the lane as it is 1.76Km lomg according to google.

Really needs FTTP to serve that sort of Road as you would need 2 Cabs to give a decent speed to the two ends of the Lane.

It looks likes we may have reached an agreement with the Estate to place a cabinet at the beginning of the lane, so assuming everyone still has an appetite to self fund, we should be good to go for at least a 4x boost from what we all receive today for about £1k each.

We did look at a second cabinet as an option, but this would have added too much additional cost for now, and would also require half the lane to be dug up for additional ducting.

As an interim solution for the far end of the lane most people will now get around 25Mbps, which is 'OK', but if there are alternatives to getting a wireless signal say from the new cabinet, to the end of the lane that would be ideal. The obvious solution is to dig up the road and lay FTTP, but self funding that isn't an option.

2 lines bonded to double the speed?

What technology is that, and where would we get further information?

Some of us have that today, but my understanding is that it's not truly bonded and will use either path, not both? At least with the Asus router I have today.

I think you're talking about load-balancing. Line bonding as supplied by AAISP for example, uses both lines to double the speed.

Yes my router only does load balancing it seems. Are there routers that do proper bonding then?

Yes, you need 2 devices - one at the ISP and one at your end. AAISP use Firebricks, but cheaper options are available from them.

Morning,

A survey would be needed to identify the correct equipment that would be needed as it depends on the distance the signal needs to travel.

If you wanted to look at the options further then let me know but its what alot of business parks do to share the connection, it would be the same equipment that is used on a mast in effect but with how close the properties are I cant see that a mast would be needed.

A mast is usually used when the signal needs to be sent across a good distance.

Thanks
Jamie
