Two new transmission masts installed in Gayton and Outwell mean that more homes and businesses across West Norfolk will be able to get broadband.

ThinkingWISP, which uses wireless technology to transmit an internet connection picked up by customers using a small aerial, has extended its coverage using the masts.

As ThinkingWISP is a wireless system, homes and businesses can benefit even if their location means that current internet speeds are very slow.

The service, which is a community partnership between Norfolk Rural Community Council, InTouch systems and AF Affinity, which is a subsidiary of Anglia Farmers, was first launched in the Aylsham area a two years ago.

Due to the need for local, reliable broadband, ThinkingWISP has expanded and now covers 90 per cent of Norfolk, as well as much of Waveney.

Jon Clemo, cheif executive of Norfolk RCC, said: “Despite the recent announcement of additional investment for superfast broadband there are still many Norfolk communities which do not even get 2Mbps (megabit per second) and have no assurance as to when they will get the basic service they need.

“ThinkingWISP is helping more and more homes and businesses who were struggling to get the broadband they need and I am delighted that the service is now available in the West Norfolk and Lynn area.”

ThinkingWISP offers a choice of home and business packages ranging from three to 10Mbps for a monthly fee. The internet speeds are actual speeds which will be received. A BT line is not required, so there is the chance to save line rental costs.
