Wireless Rural BroadBand (WRBB) has announced the launch date (G’day) for its high-speed, wideband internet access service – Sunshine.

Sunshine will be launched on 30th September 2003. The service will be aimed, primarily, at business users in the initial phase but residential subscribers will be welcome.

Residential and SME tariffs will deliver internet access at line speeds of up to 54Mbs whilst the Virtual Leased Line service can deliver in multiples of 54Mbs, potentially providing connection speeds orders of magnitude faster than ADSL.

Within 3 months of launch, Sunshine will be available to businesses and communities within 10km of the following locations (subject to terrain):

In alphabetical order

Sunshine will quickly expand to cover the East Midlands and East Anglia, with a national service available by the end of 2005.

WRBB aims to stimulate the rural economy by providing the opportunity for local agents to become involved in sales and support of the service. The Partner Referral Scheme will pay 5% of revenues (ex VAT) for each directly introduced subscription customer for the first 6 months of their contract. A additional rate of 2.5% will be paid to Community Advocates that bring Sunshine to a community. (Please note: a local agent is not a pre-requisite for coverage.)

The Sunshine service offers a wide range of tariffs to suit the needs of residential, SOHO and business customers. The tariffs start at £10 per month with a 1 month contract term for the “My Wideband” domestic service. There are no connection fees for the domestic and SME services.
