Rural Hampshire could be getting broadband, according to the boss of Andover-based Net outfit SP10.

Marc Warman hopes to provide a wireless broadband service in the south of England by the end of the year, once he gets the go-ahead to install half a dozen base stations around Hampshire and Sussex.

SP10 already has around 1,500 people - including Hampshire County Council - trialling the service in and around the Andover area. That could increase considerably if the service delivers what is promised.

The cost of installation starts from £150 and mostly subscription for a 512k service costs £29.99 a month. ®
