    Rural broadband

    Rural areas which are missing out on broadband via BT lines need help to create their own networks, say experts.

    Getting broadband to rural areas can be a long journey But people have to be shown why high-speed internet access can make a difference to them, argued community leaders at a major industry conference in London on Wednesday.

      Thanks for posting Nelix.

      Certainly raised my eye a bit when I saw it this morning (yes at work :D )

      Still will be interesting just what affect it will have in some of scotlands smaller villages - I dont think much more than 300 houses are served by my exchange.

      Still, looking forward to what this new venture will have to say and what support they will be offering.

      Yeah, it's the same at home in my village in Uist, there is about 200 houses with lots of old folk that probably dont have a PC. I heard it will cost about £90 a month for broadband !

      I am going home at christmas and not looking forward to dial-up again.. :(
