Churches could help broadband connections

May 30, 2008

It has become well known recently that broadband services in some rural areas are almost non existent and the solutions are not very fast in coming forward, especially as the main priority for the providers is to upgrade the urban networks.

But help may have come from an unexpected place. It seems that one thing that virtually all rural areas have is a church and of course every church will have spire.

This could be the perfect place to house a transmitter, which would enable the local areas to receive broadband.

The idea comes from TFL, they say that despite BT’s claim that they have 99% coverage of places like Wales that still leaves a lot of people without this service, but by using the churches this could easily rise to 100% very quickly and provide the church with an income too.
