Voneus has successfully delivered superfast broadband to Dunton, Bedfordshire, with a wireless installation utilising the village’s 5th century church tower. Dunton was previously part of the 5% most poorly connected areas in the UK and is now receiving download speeds of between 60-80Mbps.
Voneus worked closely with Virgin Media to deliver a medium scale Fixed Wireless Access solution to Dunton, a site very much left off the OpenReach grid. The provider is now capable of serving up to 300 homes and businesses with superfast broadband entirely wirelessly, using Voneus’s W-FTTP product.
Voneus Sales Director, Gary Day, comments: “It was a pleasure to work on such an innovative project. St Mary Magdalene Church has been the focal of community life in Dunton for centuries, and it’s great to see the tower now playing a vital role in providing the village with superfast broadband connectivity to the wider global community”.
Independent Central Bedfordshire Councillor, Adam Zerny, said: “Getting superfast broadband to Dunton has been a real triumph of people power. The Dunton Broadband Group found a determined and effective broadband installer in Voneus and the company have moved mountains to get the village connected”.
