A press release from a company called Exwavia makes it the 4th company in the last few weeks to announce a wireless broadband system for Anglesey.
All 4 compnaies in the race so far are planning to use the Fibrespeed backboone.
Details of the Exwavia scheme can be found here.
So far it is the only company that I have seen that has the proposed prices on it’s network.
With at least 4 companies now in the race lets hope that one of them brings it’s project to fruision. The problem is which one to select and what happens if you select the wrong supplier. Can anyone remember the name of the other satelite tv company that was on the air waves before Sky?
From exwavia web site :-
“Lots of people want to know how it is possible for us to deliver broadband to anyone in Wales – regardless of their geographical location. Whilst some of our methods are proprietary and so we will not share them readily, the basic technology is available off the shelf.
Essentially, the method is relatively simple. We purchase bandwidth from our wholesale supplier, and at or near the exchange we place our first distribution node (typically wireless) and this is used to ‘send’ the broadband to where it is required.
Distribution of broadband to users is then a simple case of feeding the wireless signal to each premises using the same wireless technology. Because our selected supplier is of such high quality the entire network can then be monitored, maintained, configured and upgraded from our HQ in Mid-Wales. This keeps the cost down and maximises the service.
In the past, wireless technology has been plagued by interference, poor performance and intermittent delivery. Our chosen manufacturer has all but solved these issues, and as such (correctly installed) the performance of wireless can easily be as competent as the performance of cables.
We are extremely lucky in Wales, that BT have taken the time and made the investment, to enable every exchange for broadband. We are capitalising on this time and investment by utilising the best possible technology to deliver service levels that are of the highest possible quality. As wholesale prices fall we will be introducing speeds of 20Mbps+, bringing the fastest internet connections available to all parts of Wales.”
