3G / 4G

#1
Could someone please advise whether the 3G / 4G networks are being considered or supported under the BDUK schemes as an alternative to the other technologies.

It would also be useful to get some feedback from anyone in rural Lincolnshire that has adopted this method for their day to day broadband supply.

Thanks
Jon

Good Morning Jon,

3G/4G sit outside the scope of this partiucular project, but we were working with BDUK to provide some additional 3G/4G coverage under a separate Government scheme. SAdly, we were promised at least 6 masts, but look as though we will only get 2 at most.

Arqiva, the BDUK contractor, weren't interested in our proposals to help with land aquisition/usage for additional masts, hence the reason we only get 2.

Regards
Steve
