Cumbria's ground-breaking Cybermoor wireless broadband network will see its speeds boosted with the adoption of WiMAX technology.

The community-owned broadband project had won plaudits from across the world after achieving one of the highest levels of broadband penetration in such a sparsely populated area.

A recent upgrade using equipment from manufacturer Proxim means that soon broadband users in the remote Alston Moor area will be able to enjoy speeds of up to 12Mb.

"The old network was never really designed to last this long and so we reached a stage where we had to upgrade," Cybermoor project manager, Daniel Heery, told silicon.com.

"I think the improved reliability which the network will bring will enable us to get more customers on board because we're in an area where ADSL coverage can be quite."

Subscribers to Cybermoor can currently access services for as little as £8.99 per month.
