It is very exciting to advise that the base station has been installed on our roof at number 30 Lower Road. From there I believe that we can cover all of Lower Road and Stewards Close with High Speed Broadband.

We are still negotiating the connection to Ely and have a number of options which are being pursued as quickly as possible. Unfortunately this means we are not going to be ready to go live immediately but are hopeful we will be up and running over the summer.

The radio system used is based on a more powerful form of WiFi. Despite being able to reach distances of over 20Km unfortunately the radio signal does not pass through trees! More testing of exactly where the signal will reach is needed, but I anticipate that to reach the rest of Soham Road we are going to need to relay the signal from at least two other houses.
