Many rural areas in the UK have to live without the basic infra-structure services that nearby towns and cities are able to take for granted.

For example, large numbers of rural post-offices, buses, schools and pubs have been closed in recent years.

A more recent concern is that most rural schools and businesses still lack access to the high-speed broadband internet connections they want and need...

It's therefore good to hear that an organisation based in Cumbria called Edenfaster is urging the UK government to be more innovative in it's efforts to aid rural development, education + diversification through the use of the latest wireless technologies + the enthusiasm of local communities.
