RuralBB is the company, they have a setup in Stone in South Glos running at those speeds.

However their website now only shows 100/100. I do have e-mails from him saying they were doing 20/50/100 and could do 500 and even 1Gbps on demand.


Edit - at the bottom of the webpage it does say "*Prices for the 500Mb service on request."


Blimey I never heard of this company can do 100/500 or even 1Gbps but it was very naughty of them metion there is no up to speed are misleading.

"Because we use radio waves there is no degradation of broadband speed with distance"

If that were the case we would only need one TV or mobile mast to cover the UK, so any other claims are best interpreted with the reality of what people actually know about wireless.

Sorry for the delay I had to dig it up - but this is the original

Gotcha.

The 500Mb would be a dedicated transceiver and a point to point wireless connection over probably V-Band or E-Band. That I would imagine would be why the price is on request, it's the wireless equivalent of FTTPoD smile

Perhaps they need to talk to the Voyager team to understand how data rate can be limited by distance.

However, in the practical world of terrestrial broadband a point-to-point wireless connection will not have to worry about any degradation over vDSL like distances, so long as there are no trees, buses, lorries, or buildings in the fresnel zone between the two points anyway.

You could say they're right. True, speed will have a dependency on SNR, just like xDSL, but with a PtP link on a narrow beam you can always wind the power up (within license limits) or jack up the antenna gain. We Need A Bigger DIsh.....

But when the link's no longer line-of-sight, the speed's dropped to zero. You'd need a very, very tall mast to cover the whole UK. I think it's called a satellite smile And you'd need lots of channels, but that's a function of the number of users, not the distance between base and user.

Fair enough but the impression the guy gave me was that he could turn up to 500 or even 1Gbps on demand for the right cost.

True, but again bear in mind I've seen this at 500mbps and 1Gbps so I know it works. I also know the setup as it's going into my folks back yard!

So is this a point to point or point to multipoint configuration?

I've seen 5G at multiple Gigabit too.
