We’ve installed fibre optic wireless broadband at our new development at Anson Road and are now looking at extending this service – initially to Jeannine House and Sentosa House. We’ll be carrying out a feasibility survey over the next few months.
The system is installed and maintained by a specialist company that works with a number of student housing providers and universities. Generally they provide a local router, sockets and hubs to each flat and provides about 20Mbits per user. We pay the company a monthly fee for the service which we then pass on to residents as part of the rent, generally about £15 per month. It’s complicated, because this will need to be retro-fitted and we would need a lot of subscribers right at the beginning of the service to make it economic – and most residents already have a service.
We’d be pleased to have your views on this and you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
