Many rural areas often fall behind as a result of sluggish broadband speeds. Kimmeridge is a small rural village on the Jurrassic coast of Dorset which lacked substantially in internet connectivity. It is a tourist attraction for its ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, World Heritage Site and Special Scientific Interest Sites. Nonetheless, its communications infrastructure was not.
Due to lack of infrastructure investment in the area, Kimmeridge only had unreliable, Sub 200k internet connectivity. Along with this, dismal mobile phone signal meant a lot of the community were unable to communicate externally.
