I have this morning been told about Boundless Networks
Fibre to the mast. Is this something any of you have heard of? Is it worth looking into also?
Are you in their coverage area?
If so, worth getting in touch with them. I think they use a Wi-Max type solution where a rooftop antenna is installed which communicates with their local mast - a line of sight is req'd. In my previous home in Kent, i used to be with such an ISP (Telabria) and the Wi-Max setup worked pretty well. However Telabria went bust later on & Orbital/Vfast hoovered up its remains
Some lucky folks in my village are with Boundless Networks and the reports are pretty good.
England soccer manager (and close neighbour of mine) Gareth Southgate uses them and reported to me it works fine until Fibre gets to him in the not too distant future.
We can actually see the red beacon (Mast) from my house but sadly tree's are a problem in the line of sight.
The red beacon is situated at the end of Leeds Bradford Airport (Otley Chevin end) and can be seen easily come night fall.
Others in my village are lucky and have no objects obstructing the LOS.
Most who I have asked say the service is reliable although not quite getting the speeds they pay for.... BUT certainly better than the 1Mbps we now get through copper.
Definitely worth a shot if you can see the product will work via their website.
Ring them because communications is very good the times I have rung.
