Wireless Link

Nearly a decade ago I built a wireless access network in my village, as BT had declared that the exchange wasn't viable for their ADSL broadband service.  As it turns out, there was sufficient interest in the wireless network that BT decided the exchange would be viable after all, so they put ADSL in and the wireless network never reached its full potential.

One remaining vestige of the old network is the access point attached to the farm house opposite mine, and the bridge that sits on the window sill in our front bedroom.  It is on this link that my neighbours still receive their Internet service - I share my broadband connection with them.
