|FDM Broadband United
FDM Broadband is a privately held, Berkshire-based company providing wireless broadband especially to homes and businesses in rural areas that do not have access to ADSL or cable broadband.
FDM Broadband uses a patented wireless technology based on the IEEE 802.11 spread spectrum radio standard. Having proven the technology in Europe, the first UK installation in Hungerford, Berkshire went live in May 2003. FDM Broadband is currently rolling out its wireless network across the rest of the UK, beginning with rural communities in Berkshire, Hampshire and Wiltshire.
In each community it serves, FDM Broadband installs a wireless hub or base station connected to the Internet. From this base station,FDM Broadband uses radio signals to relay data to subscribers.
FDM Broadband requires just 50 pre-registered subscribers to cover the costs of installing the necessary infrastructure. If private sector sponsorship or grants from the Regional Development Agencies are available, the required number of subscribers may be even lower. FDM Broadband can advise rural communities on how they can reduce their 'trigger levels' or initial infrastructure development costs by gaining access to such funding.
