Pinnacle trials high-speed wireless broadband in Cheltenham
High-speed wireless broadband offering speeds of up to 100Mbps is being tested in Cheltenham by Pinnacle Technology.

The next-generation broadband service is set to be rolled out over the next fortnight, with transmitters to be installed in the town centre and towards the racecourse.

Most of the infrastructure for the Wi-Fi pilot comes from the network already installed by Pinnacle to deliver free wireless internet connectivity to visitors at the Times Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Customers close to one of the main transmitters will be able to connect to the web directly from a range of enabled devices, such as PCs, laptops and smartphones.

An earlier pilot scheme was completed last year, so Pinnacle has expressed confidence that the latest trial of the technology will prove successful.

Martin Stephenson, head of special projects at Pinnacle Technology, said: "For some outlying villages within range of our service, it will bring quality broadband where there is currently only a very poor speed or no service at all."
