The service is supplied through a Scottish based internet service provider called Briskona. A range of broadband packages are available to serve households and businesses with speeds up to 30Mbps, and a phone option with no line rental. You can do away with your BT landline and save the £18/month line rental.
A wireless system depends on ‘line of sight’ (LOS) between a succession of relay and access points located to maximise the number of properties served. For this reason, an on-site survey is required to check for any LOS obstacles
Contact Briskona to see if your property could be connected. There is a connection charge, which includes a wireless router which belongs to Briskona so there are no future costs should any problem arise. At the moment, if your download speed is under 2Mbps, you can apply for a free connection. Briskona has been providing services locally for over eight years, and now has over 600 customers in Berwickshire, and well over 1,500 elsewhere in Scotland
