BT plans remote radio broadband services.
UK telecomms company BT plc has announced its intention to utilise radio broadband in a bid to broadband-enable rural and remote areas in the UK.
The company is planning to invest GBP22m in 35 partnerships by next year which will bring radio broadband services to more areas of the UK. This is expected to enable the company to reach its stated goal of 100% broadband coverage for the UK by 2005.
The move comes after the successful trial of a radio broadband service in December 2003 at three remote locations - Porthleven in Cornwall, Pwllheli in Wales and Ballingry, Scotland.
No pricing details for the implementation of radio broadband services or the cost of subscription were announced.
