[LUG] Possible solution for faster broadband to rural areas


 Hi folks,

Not sure if anyone has seen this at all?


Basically Virgin Media and Surf Telecoms are trialling stringing fibre across Western Power Distribution power line poles.

According to Western Power Distribution, they supply power to 2.5 million homes in the South West England and South and West Wales.

Okay fair enough it's possibly not going to reach everyone (not sure if there are any rural properties who get electricity by other means) but maybe if it's successful it'll give folks other options for faster broadband.
