This book details a rural wireless broadband initiative carried out by a group of small businesses and dedicated volunteers in order to bring 21st century communications to their community.
Broadband is SO important to businesses today, and this community was out of reach of the incumbent telco, BT, and alternatives eg satellite. As a broadband notspot, stuck on dial up Internet connections, they set to and provided their own affordable broadband telecommunications network using wireless infrastructure and available expertise.
Wennet, Lancashire, UK now reaches more than 40 users, and the effects are felt throughout the community - businesses, families and individuals.
