A small village in Cumbria is at the centre of a world first in mobile phone and broadband technology. Sebergham, near Wigton, is taking part in a trial of a brand new system aimed at trying to connect remote rural areas.
The new technology works via a series of small mobile antennas and, if successful, should allow all the homes and businesses to receive a mobile phone signal and access to much faster broadband.
Mal Hilton, the Chairman of Northern Fells Broadband, has been telling ITV Border more about the scheme.
A Cumbrian village has trialled a world first in mobile and broadband technology which will provide reliable services to rural areas.
Households and businesses in Sebergham near Penrith are all benefiting from the experiment.
The B5305 is blocked in both directions at Sebergham, Cumbria, as a lorry has jacknifed on Sebergham Bridge.
Delays between Wigton and Penrith can be expected and police say the road will not be clear until at least 10am.
