Council houses get broadband through plug

Council houses get broadband through plugNews brought to you by Skint Tariffs, providers of cheap broadband deals.

Broadband internet connections are set to become available through electrical sockets.

Residents of council flats in the West Midlands are to benefit from free or subsidised broadband access which they will be able to plug into.

Solihull Community Housing (SCH) is to work with CI-Net, which will provide "pre-WiMax" wireless connection based on the buildings' roofs and distributed to individual households through the electrical wires.

Around 11,000 council homes in the area are set to benefit from the scheme which is hoping to reduce the digital divide as well as attracting business to the area.

"One of our technical challenges was finding a low-cost, low-maintenance, reliable way of providing internet connectivity," said Chris Deery, SCH's head of IT.

"We wanted to minimise the civil engineering work required to deliver broadband to the multi-storey buildings, as well avoid causing disruption to individual tenants during implementation. We also wanted a solution with the ability to expand over time, so we could start with one building and roll it out to more tenants in future."
