Starting in Southern England in January, a regional network operator called Telabria Wireless Networks will begin a three-month trial in which WiMAX will carry data from an Internet backbone to towns including Maidstone, Ashford, Canterbury and Folkestone. Clients may then pick up and distribute the connection with WiFi.
Telabria provide / are going to provide free access to libraries too. Good work!
This is my site The FG that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
