November Newsletter - announcing a major bandwidth upgrade! At the recent AGM, we agreed to invest in a bandwidth upgrade, so all users will get up to 10Mbits/sec. in both directions using their existing hardware and at no additional cost. The practical works are under way, and we hope to have it up and running by the New Year.
This means that your local Community Broadband System will soon be providing better bandwidth than anything available in practice from other suppliers in our area, with unlimited usage, at an unchanged fee of £20/month. And don't forget that with RASP you get a 'symmetrical' service, so down- and up-loads are both at the same speed (try that on an ADSL connection... ). And of course support from someone within a five-mile radius.
Meanwhile, spread the word - the more clients we get, the more bandwidth we will be able to afford; the new bearer will have a capacity of up to 100Mb/s, so it will be easy for us to buy further upgrades as we can afford them.
For those who are interested, the minutes of the AGM will be found on the website http://www.raspnet.co.uk/meetings
