We will be adding useful links and resources over the coming weeks to assist individuals, businesses, councils and communities to support the campaign.

    Femtocells… http://bit.ly/9RPSKZ
    The use of smartphones has meant that mobile companies are struggling (masts need fibre too) and femtocells are a way of using your internet connection to boost your mobile at home. This of course is not possible in rural areas, as the femtocell needs at least 1megabit to work. Another reason to get fibre into the countryside?

    just listened to an audio boo here: http://bit.ly/csyQ2E it is from @documentally, who is an ex cow herder, engineer of human souls, and famous on twitter for his work, he relies on the internet and has what we call a crapspot connection. This is the sort of person we are trying to help in this campaign and the boo is his response to a call for help to BT. The answer they gave him was to move.
