Broadband for all needs Wi-Fi


by David Allen

The government is planning to invest in the improvement of the broadband network in order to ensure that every home and business in the UK has a basic broadband service.

This is well publicised, but how they intend to achieve this is different matter.

However, it seems that the government could be thinking of investing the cash into the development of community Wi-Fi networks.

Although nothing has been finalised yet and the Digital Britain report is still to be published, the government is expected to put around £750 million into the broadband for all kitty, and a local Wi-Fi network seems to be the best bet in order for it to achieve its own goal of providing a universal broadband service.

Wi-Fi would work well in towns and cities, and is more cost-effective than digging up roads.

This is even more important in rural areas, where the job is more difficult, with trees, hills and huge distances to cover.
