In a revolutionary new project, Solihull council is trialing a new broadband for the masses project. The internet will be piped into council block residents’ hovels by networking company CI-Net via a wireless connection on the building rooftops and then from there on via electrical wiring to each person’s home. The broadbanded-up Brums will then be able to stick a three-pronged plug type device into their sockets to hook themselves up to the world wide web.
Which reminds Sneak of an amusing incident in which his parents once spent a good 30 minutes trying to force their Lan cable into the power socket of their laptop. Let’s hope the residents of Solihull are a little more tech-savvy, or the digital divide may remain a chasm for some time to come.
