Interesting service, offering a WiMAX network in the Brighton and Hove area. Not much technical flesh on the site, but seems they're offering 2Mb/s, 5M/bs and 10Mb/s symmetrical broadband access over wireless (contended at 10:1).

They don't say what equipment they're using nor what spectrum. Do Ofcom know about them?

Also if they were founded by the council, they may fall foul of state aid regulation?

Does look like an interesting system though.
