N.B. Please only order this book through Lulu. Amazon orders cannot be fulfilled due to cost restrictions. The second in the series of JFDI books which outline the struggle to bridge the digital divide in many rural areas of this green and pleasant land. This award-winning community wireless network uses cutting edge technology to deliver a competitive, affordable broadband service to South Witham and surrounding villages. This includes mesh, as well as the ADSL bonding solution that BT Wholesale have recently adopted. Once again, community networks lead the broadband way with innovation at grassroots showing the telcos how it can be done. SWBB is a community initiative and in the words of Vince Lombardi: "Individual commitment to a group effort -- that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work". And maybe if more people JFDI like SWBB have, we would all have some decent broadband...

    "JFDI twice" haha, simple mistake - I reviewed the book while Lins was logged in on my computer. Will just have to jfdi2. She had to use my computer to upload the book cover simply because she has no broadband connection of her own, there are no groups like wennet or SWBB in her area who have built their own network, and Lins has been too busy helping others to build her own. I stand by my review of the book, it is brilliant, a great tribute to the many people involved and a credit to a wonderful writer who can put all our thoughts and feelings into words. Power to the people. chris

    "JFDI" This is an amazing book about a team of dedicated people bridging the digital divide on a day to day basis, fighting against the flood barrier of congested exchanges, greedy telcos and blinkered government. Their commitment to the project has been a learning curve, and they have generously shared their knowledge with many others. Our group would not have built a community network without their help and encouragement Many thanks to the JEDI of SWBB who have JFDI chris

    "JFDI Linsey Annison" She has told the story of SWBB as it was , and as it is. A remarkable record of dedication and determination against all odds in a very competitive and at times confusing world. There is no exaggeration, it was my roof they climbed on, the trip to the water tower was hilarious and scary but never to be forgotten. So much experience was gained in just a few months and put into service, the customer base just grew as we had faith in the founders, Tom , Helen, Roy. This is a book to inspire and encourage community groups or individuals to have a go. You can do it. Well done Linsey
