Monks gets 30 Mbps broadband


by David Allen

It is hard to make sense of some things, but imagine a remote island monastery off the south coast of Wales near Tenby in Pembrokeshire, where the only inhabitants are an order of monks.

Nothing spectacular about that, as there must be a lot of places like that in the UK, but not with a super fast internet connection, which has a speed of up to 30 Mbps!

Their order has been at the monastery since 1929, but was quick to realise that they could raise funds by selling a wide range of products over the internet. However, the dial up that they were using was so unreliable that they needed a change.

Pembrokeshire based Telecoms Company TFL Group was employed by the order to install the 30 Mbps wireless network - resulting in that the monks have a connection speed around two hundred and fifty times faster than the dial up that they were using before.

There was no mention of the cost, but the monks say they are happy with the 100% increase in online sales.
