Peterborough based X-Systems Management aims to overcome rural gaps in ADSL and cable service with a wireless LAN-based broadband service, launched yesterday.

X-Systems Broadband uses the 2.4 GHz radio frequency to provide true 'always-on' broadband access to businesses and homes, at connection speeds of between 1Mbps and 4Mbps.

Unlike other schemes, X-Systems Management is offering its service on a national basis. A spokesman for the company said it is inviting home users in rural areas, community groups and business to register their interest on its site.

Even at X-Broadband's minimum speed, the service is still around eight times faster than BT's recently announced 'Mid-band' ISDN package and requires only 50 users to trigger the cost-effective installation.

Monthly subscriptions to X-Systems Broadband start at £25 for the 1Mbps service. Set-up costs £149 per household. Backhaul connections will be over either satellite or leased-line links, as appropriate.

The company has developed two "tailored systems" designed to fulfil the differing needs of business and domestic users. In both cases a turnaround time of just 4 weeks is achievable to install the system within a community and get it on-line, X-Systems Management promises. ®
