We have been hard at work over the past few months building a new network to cover Dalton, Gayles, Kirby Hill and Whaston known as the Holmedale Network. This new network has been built using the latest cutting edge technology known as airMAX ac from Ubiquiti Networks. Being an early adopter of new equipment isn’t without its troubles, but after some teething troubles we are confident all reported issues are now resolved.
This new network has been made possible thanks to the dedication, commitment and patience of a number of local residents, but a special thanks is due to Mags Cran who took on the role of broadband champion for the area, kindly assisted by Zoe Worner (Kirby Hill & Whaston) and Sue Farr (Dalton) and Andy Ryland from Rural Action Yorkshire who helped to spread the word. Thanks are also due to those who have kindly given permission to host the broadband equipment needed to supply the area.
For those users joining the Holmedale Network please take a moment to register on our Status Website and also check out our support pages which details how to get in touch if you ever experience an issue with your service. As always feedback is welcome, we have learnt a great deal about how the new kit works in a short space of time, our thanks to those who have already contributed.
If you are interested in joining the Holmedale Network, please contact us for more details. Following a successful line of sight survey, we will be in touch the week before your installation to arrange a suitable date & time. We will advise of our current waiting list at the time of enquiry.
