WiSpire wireless broadband is a joint venture between local ISP Freeclix and the Diocese of Norwich. A distinguishing feature of WiSpire’s services is that wireless transmitters are installed in the towers of local churches. The relatively flat terrain of the county combined with the elevation and abundance of the parish churches makes Norwich perhaps the perfect area for rollout of wireless broadband.

WiSpire’s packages start at £13/month and installation fees for the wireless broadband antenna are £60. You can choose to spread the cost of the installation over a 12 month contract if you’d rather not pay up front.
