POTENTIAL SUPER FAST BROADBAND FOR RIMINGTON
With the conversion of the Black Bull to Rimington House virtually completed we are currently seeking to identify a viable solution to deliver superfast broadband for the eventual residents of the property from services which can be made available in Rimington now.
We are investigating the feasibility of establishing a “community hub” to which each of the four dwellings and potentially others in the village could connect and receive a superfast broadband service. We have identified a potential supplier of this service who believes it will be possible to get a connection from Rimington House to their existing network and create a “community hub”.
The purpose of this notice is to establish whether there are other residents who would be interested in receiving this service.
HOW WOULD IT WORK
The network operator would establish; a point-to-point microwave connection between a dish on Rimington House and an existing local mast, and a multipoint connection between the mast on Rimington House and other subscribers in the village.
The installation on Rimington House would be owned by the Service Provider and the contract would be between the Subscriber and the Service Provider. Other than providing the site for the mast, determining whether there are other potential subscribers from the village, and becoming a subscriber to the service on behalf of Rimington House, we would have no other involvement.
WHAT WILL IT COST
To some extent this depends on how many people take the service initially. Indicative costs are:
• One-Off Installation Charge £145 - £175 per subscriber
• Domestic Monthly Charges c £20 (5 mps download/2 mps upload) to circa £40 (20 mps download 5 mps upload) on a 2 year contract
