Our infrastructure is running well.
What is Swale Life?
We are a not-for-profit community interest company serving the residents of Upper Swaledale above Thwaite.
The company was founded by loans from the four Directors and a gift from Gunnerside Estate plus support with hosting from Keld Lodge and Chris and Glenda Calvert using their barn on Kisdon.
We have made a £10,000 technology investment for the Upper Dale to provide ultrafast internet and an option of IP telephone.
£29.60 per month
- No data limit موقع رائع
- No telephone line required
- No satellite connection

Can I use my voucher?
Whilst Swale Life is registered with Ofcom as a telecoms provider and was registered as Better Broadband Supplier the voucher scheme has now ended. The new gigabit voucher scheme offers £1,500 per household but this is for fibre to your house. Whilst we could offer this the BT dig charge is around £30 per meter so if you live 50m from the Keld Box you would get it for free but the cable to the Lodge we put in was 65m so no one would get it for free. Greenses Farm is 350m from the box so with the voucher it would cost me £9,000 – about the same as all the infrastructure for everyone. They really haven’t thought through rural environments.
