A few weeks ago I was asked by the team at Airband to help them celebrate their first installation on the Connecting Shropshire project, which had gone live in Shifnal.

I met Andrew and Sulayma at their lovely listed property in Tong. They’ve been waiting for a superfast connection for four years after moving into the area. Their connection has jumped from 2.5 to over 30Mbps, making both streaming media and working from home much easier.

I wanted to highlight the access that the Airband connection had given them, rather than the technology involved. Boxes and wires are of interest to a few of us, but most can appreciate being able to stream movies, work from home with a reliable connection and stay in touch with distant relatives.

You can learn more about Airband here as well as reading their full post about the installation and their ongoing project.

I had a really nice time meeting Andrew and Sulayma, and felt I got to know them a little bit in the short time we were together, here are a few of the photographs from the day.
