Village leapfrogs national telecom and lays its own 1-gps Super-Broadband

Here’s a solution they did even in over-nationalized economy of Britain:

Villagers became so fed up with their slow internet connections they dug trenches and laid down superfast broadband cables to each property themselves.

Now residents of the hamlet of Dolphinholme, Lancs, benefit from one of the fastest broadband networks in the UK with speeds of up to one gigabit per second (Gbps).

The tiny community, which comprises a pub, village hall, two chapels, a garage and a smattering of homes, had repeatedly asked BT to connect them to a new superfast cable but were refused due to their remote location and cost.

So a group of residents volunteered to connect all the cottages by digging trenches and laying the cable themselves, with the help of rural broadband provider Broadband 4 Rural North (B4RN).

Allen Norris, who lead the Dolphinholme B4RN Action Group, said it had been “life-changing” for the village.

Hurrah for them. The word can spread fast in Cyberspace, so other towns will be repeated this. Wireless broadband won’t be far behind if technology advances apace. Already, cell phonea and then smart phones have leapfrogged past telephone wiring installation to reach almost all the formerly phone-starved barrios in poor countries. The poorest shack might have a smart phone in there somewhere, and they’re looking at Youtube.
