Email News: 25 July 2011
Thank you for registering and for your patience while we roll out our wireless network. We expect to receive a faculty (the church equivalent of planning permission) for our first church as a Wi-Fi hub in the next few weeks. With this precedent established, we will then be able to roll out the network at a much faster rate and will update the inter-active map on the website as we go. In the meantime do please continue to encourage churches, businesses and residential customers to sign up.
Having heard the rumours I thought it best to get it straight from the horses mouth and this what Pete from Freeclix said (10th May 2011).
Many thanks for the email, would you be kind enough to post a link to www.wispire.co.uk onto the news article so that we may gain some more registrations for your village and the project overall.
The process of installation is well underway, but we have to wait for the church to agree a faculty application. Once this is done we’re looking to install the network towards the end of June or early July 2011.
WiFi will be available at the church itself, heavily content filtered against pornography and gambling sites, but apart from that free web access for village, church and heritage information websites, yours included? Further, you can sign-up for a WiSpire account that will be usable in the vicinity of any WiSpire enabled church throughout the region.
Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) will be available to supply homes around the village and the nearby countryside with a broadband service of 6mb download and 1mb upload. This won’t be an “up to” style service, if you can receive a signal from the church you’ll get what you pay for.
