Clackmannanshire To Receive County-Wide Wireless Broadband

Clackmannanshire, Scotland is getting ready to deploy its new wireless network to bring houses high-speed wireless broadband.

Enabling houses which aren’t able to have a fixed ADSL or Fiber Line, the wireless broadband will finally bring the connected era across the country and be compliant with the Universal Service Commitment (USC) brought forward by the government to enable a minimum of 2Mbps across the country by 2015.

The coverage of the new service is still currently unknown until its deployed but the council say that they hope to cover the following areas: Tillicoultry, Alva East, Alloa West, Bandeath, Throsk, South Alloa, Cambusbarron and parts of rural south west Stirling.

After the council won a rather impressive £200,000 grant to help fund the service, WiMAX technology will be used for delivering households with a speed ranging between 2Mbps to 20Mbps.

Eddie Carrick from Clackmannanshire Council said: “I’m delighted that our bid has been recognised as a strong one and that we’ve got the funding to take this forward.

Clackmannanshire has a great transport infrastructure that puts it at the center of Scottish business. Now we can build an electronic infrastructure to match that.”
