If you live outside one of the main urban areas of Scotland,
wireless broadband may deliver access where other broadband
technologies are not currently commercially or technically
This type of broadband is delivered to your home through
a radio signal rather than a cable or telephone wire and provides
you with all the usual benefits of broadband.
Fixed wireless broadband uses an aerial fitted to the outside
of your house, it requires 'line of sight' between your home
and the wireless base station, the focal point for sending
and receiving broadband signals between all houses and businesses
in the surrounding area.
Fixed wireless broadband is a relatively new form of broadband
service, not yet widely available across Scotland. It may
be possible for communities who would like to have broadband
to get a fixed wireless solution on a small scale if they
live in an area that doesn't have access to ADSL or cable.
You can find out what broadband technologies are available to you at home by entering your postcode into the 'Suppliers in your area' section at the top of the page.
