South Norfolk Council to connect rural areas using Wireless Broadband on 10Mbps speed

The South Norfolk Council will be deploying a new fixed wireless network capable of 10Mbps+ speeds, to connect parts of the regions out of reach of the existing Better Broadband for Norfolk (BbfN) project. The council has tamed up with local fixed-wireless broadband provider, InTouch Systems, using its ITSwisp service to connect the regions. The BBfN project, working with Openreach, is rolling out its network to reach 90% of the county with access speeds of 24Mbps+. They intend to finish the project of connecting superfast broadband by the end of this year and to reach 95% of the county by March of 2020, or 91% of South Norfolk at least.

Deputy Leader of South Norfolk Council, Michael Edney, pointed out the need for a decent broadband service to meet nearly every aspect of our modern life, but some residents and businesses are feeling frustrated and excluded with the currents speeds, making it important for them to do something, which they have. Steve Temple of InTouch Systems is proud to be given the contract by the council. Familiar with the challenges faced by local businesses and the community, they have worked together to develop the innovative ITSwisp service, to move them into the 21st century, he added.
