If you suffer from poor broadband in our community, you might like to consider an alternative. We have recived the following letter from Alncom, who offer a non-copper wire broadband service. Other providers may do this as well, but as you can see, this company already has a foothold in Kyloe.
Gavin Sewell, Project Manager writes:
There has been some activity in recent months in upgrading the broadband infrastructure around the Kyloe/Lowick/Bowsden areas. Alncom who are based in Alnwick and are leaders in providing broadband solutions to rural communities have upgraded their network to start covering local areas.
The recent installs at Kyloe mean they can now relay the broadband using wireless line of sight technology to areas that have poor broadband speeds. Because the technology is not reliant upon copper telephone wires ultra-fast speeds are now available subject to a survey.
A government grant voucher scheme is now live which covers the cost of the install leaving you to choose your package which start from 30Mbps download speeds.
If you are interested please contact Alncom on 01665 604816 or go to the website and complete the enquiry form at https://www.alncom.co.uk/rural-broadband/
