Wireless Superfast Broadband East Suffolk

Wireless Broadband Mast

Suffolk Coastal Broadband

After working with them on BBC Springwatch at Minsmere, Rade partnered with Redraw Internet, a Wireless ISP, to bring a wireless superfast broadband internet service to the villages of East Suffolk - parts of which suffer from very limited broadband service.
  • Superfast speeds: from 6Mb to 100Mb
  • No BT phone line required
  • Generous usage allowances
  • Reliable, local service  

What is fixed wireless broadband? 

Fixed Wireless Broadband is an internet service that is delivered by line of sight from local relay points via radio antennas.

Wireless technology allows you to connect without the service limitations of your address or phone line. 

Prices start from just £18 per month plus a one-off installation fee. 

We're not reliant on landline, mobile or satellite signals.   

Service is dependent on line of sight from one of our masts. When you contact us we will check our maps and let you know what service might be available.  

Fast upload and download speeds 

All our Internet access packages are symmetrical, giving similar speeds both up and down.

Fast upload speeds give you a far smoother online experience. You'll really notice the difference if you have tried satellite broadband and suffered from intermittency and latency issues.

The majority of our customers are those who have struggled with poor, at times non-existent, service in many Suffolk villages. However, as a BT phone line isn't needed for our broadband service, it is also ideal for people who don't want the expense of another phone line, such as a business who needs a backup internet connection and holiday cottage owners.

How much does it cost? 

Our standard installation fee for residential customers costs £180; all connections are subject to survey.

What does the installation involve?

A standard installation takes around 2 hours. Our engineer will attach a small receiver box to your tv aerial, which we will align for the best signal. We will then fit the cable to connect the box to the inside of your property, to bring fast, secure broadband to your home or office. 

Some installations are more complex and, for example, may need a pole to provide extra height or a larger receiver for a better reception. We will explain the costs before we carry out any work. 

For wifi around the house you will need to connect to a network switch or wireless access point - if you don't have one, we can supply, setup and test at a small one-off charge. 

Do you cover our area? 

Our customers include holiday parks, hotels, farms, industrial units, rural businesses, schools and homes. 

Our original network, which we started back in 2014, ranged from Lowestoft to Leiston. Now we have extended our coverage area towards Felixstowe and inland, south of Framlingham and north of Halesworth. We continue to invest to reach more corners of Suffolk in need of faster broadband.

We have already connected premises in 67 Suffolk villages. The list is getting longer every month.
