Broadband Survey

Broadband Survey – Pencaitland/New Winton/Glenkinchie Area

Because of the variable speed and quality of broadband available in and around the village of Pencaitland and other outlying communities Pencaitland Community Council has been investigating alternatives to the conventional Internet Service Providers who all connect you to the web through a telephone line connected to the Pencaitland BT exchange.

The alternative would be a wireless high speed system, giving coverage to homes and businesses in the area via a small external wireless receiver/transmitter on your house or office which can attach to your existing TV aerial.

Costs of the infrastructure would be met partly by grant funding, and it is anticipated that monthly costs to subscribers would be comparable to current ISPs, although with significantly greater speeds.

Your help in completing this survey will allow us to assess demand in your area and undertake further technical surveys to determine the feasibility of offering the improved service to everyone… even the more remote households.

If you would like to be kept informed of the progress of this plan for the village please provide your email address (which of course will not be passed to any third parties).
