  • What is a broadband Router
    Usually either 2 LANs Local Area Networks 2 WANs Wide Area Networks or a LAN to the internet The information that most people require about routers we will try to cover here such as what router to get how to set up a router and security For starters if you are wondering what the reason to get a router instead of a broadband modem is then the answer is pretty

  • About the Broadband online MAC campaign by Broadband Watchdog
    as easy and convenient for the user as possible That is why we have started a campaign to get broadband providers to let customers apply and get their MAC Migration Authority Codes online instead of having to call up for them like is currently the case The campaign is just starting and we will be contacting all the UK broadband providers to invite them to start offering MAC codes to

  • Government claim fibre broadband spending will return £20 for every £1 spent
    set up to help distribute the government funds to the various areas where fibre optic broadband roll out was needed but would not be covered by BT Broadband or Virgin Media with their own funding because they were not deemed to be financially beneficial to the companies to do so Originally the government put 530m in the pot with local authorities who bid for funding expecting to match this amount for each of their own individual schemes a further 250m is to be put into the pot after 2015 These findings were made in a government commissioned UK Broadband Impact Study Impact Report and other benefits that were detailed were that households could save 45m per year by 2024 with more people being able to remote work from home and that by 2014 that it would help with the creation of 11 000 jobs and a net increase in jobs of 20 000 by 2024 Some will wonder if BT really needed the extra funding in light of their recent high spending on rights for both Premiership football which has cost them 738 million for 38 live games per season for 3 seasons and their 3 years of exclusive UK rights to the Champions League football from 2015 which is to cost them 900m Filed under Fibre broadband News Tags BDUK BT fibre broadband Government claim fibre broadband spending will return 20 for every 1 spent Government investment in next generation broadband Author Mark 11 01 am Comments 0 No Comments No comments yet RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URL Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Search for Blogroll Broadband News Broadband Speed Test Mobile Broadband Categories Broadband Bundles Broadband Speeds Business Broadband Fibre broadband Gaming Home Broadband IPTV Mobile Broadband

  • Rural broadband
    what they are paying in comparison to others This has led to reports that BT are charging up to 80 mark up on the price it costs them to roll out high speed broadband a claim which BT says is not true The people who monitor the spending on behalf of the government The National Audit Office NAO are to publish a report next month and it is believed top say that they don t know if the taxpayer is getting value for money According to The Telegraph newspaper one source said about the broadband scheme a train crash waiting to happen and the train appears to be accelerating rather than slowing down We will either end up with some sort of meltdown in the next year or so or there will be significant cost in the next parliament to unpick it Governments high speed rural broadband is a train

Islands region of Scotland sees just BT left for the contract to deliver broadband to the region Both Cable Wireless and Fujitsu have both pulled out of the bidding process to bring super fast broadband to the Highlands and Islands The area was one of 4 rural areas in the country that is to receive between 5 10m of funding to help roll out a pilot of fibre broadband to the area however Fujitsu have withdrawn from the process as they claim that additional investment would be required for the required infrastructure and Cable Wireless have also followed suit this just leaves BT left in for the project Rhonda Grant the Labour MSP for the Highlands Islands said This pilot is of vital importance to every community throughout the Highlands and Islands and it is essential that more public money is invested in this project so far only 10 per cent of the estimated costs have been secured Alex Neil the Scottish cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment has previously estimated that the cost of rolling out next generation broadband across the Highlands Islands region would be in the region of 300m alone Filed under Fibre broadband Tags Highlands Islands

the first country in Europe to use White Space technology in the TV spectrum to deliver broadband to rural areas after Ofcom gave it the go ahead How the White Space technology works is by searching for the gaps in the airwaves that have been reserved for use for TV broadcasting the gaps are known as White Spaces These White Spaces are then able to be used to transmit wireless signals which is where they can come in well for rural broadband The wireless signals to be used in the White Space of the spectrum will be able to travel greater distances but will work in a similar way to a standard WiFi connection Ed Richards the Ofcom Chief Executive said At an early stage Ofcom identified the potential of White Spaces which are currently lying vacant all around us Within Europe we have been leading the way to try to harness this capacity without causing harmful interference to existing users of the spectrum The solution we have devised creates the opportunity to maximise the efficient use of spectrum and open the door to the development of a new and exciting range of consumer and business applications Ofcom state the following new applications that could follow by using this new technology Enhanced Wi Fi The majority of current Wi Fi devices operate in spectrum at 2 4GHz White Spaces could provide new capacity while boosting the range of devices potentially enabling Wi Fi networks that stretch across towns and cities This is thanks to the lower frequency of TV White Spaces typically between 470 and 790MHz Rural broadband White Spaces could be used to provide rural locations with broadband services In practice this could be achieved by building a network of transmitters that use White Spaces to link remote houses and villages to larger towns that are already connected to the internet Trials are currently being undertaken by industry to test this on the island of Bute Scotland Machine to Machine Communications A relatively new area of innovation called Machine to Machine Communications allows information to be exchanged between devices Many experts believe that in the coming years billions of devices will be able to connect wirelessly and via the internet for a range of applications White spaces could be used to wirelessly transmit this information using its additional range to reach deep inside buildings This could be especially useful for wirelessly measuring utility meters in consumers homes just one of a wide number of potential applications Other examples include using White Spaces to keep an inventory of stock owned by a business or making it easier for scientists to conduct research by automating the measurement of different readings It is expected that the White Space technology will launch in the UK in 2013 and it won t be under licence Filed under Mobile Broadband Tags Rural broadband TV spectrum broadband UK to use White Space TV spectrum for rural broadband white space technology Author Mark 1 43 pm Comments 0 August
