This shows how decent broadband is essential - it's not just an added extra, it's a must-have.

very true Johann, it is really difficult to live without one these days, but many in rural areas have to.
We need fibre access in the communities, and then we can build our own networks round them. The film was made on such a community network. It only has access to a 2 meg feed. just think of the potential if it had gigs!

Excellent. Surprised you didn't mention your fibre project. Rural Britain needs next generation broadband and you demonstrate that wonderfully here. Good luck!

the fibre film is the next one in the list on youtube, just look further down or use this link

I love making these movies! just wish I had the bandwidth to do them in HD. One day... when I get my fat pipe.
If I won the digitalrevolutions film comp I could fibre up 10 more farms.

Excellent. I thought you may have mentioned your next generation broadband project. A high speed infrastructure to ALL parts of Britain is essential to our future and you illustrate that so well in this film with your wonderful insights. Good luck!
