how to get fast Internet in the countryside

AirInternet farm QCS

Internet in the countryside is becoming increasingly important.

Business operations in the agricultural sector are demanding more and more:
Monitoring of climate control systems.
Robots and PLCs are equipped with an internet connection and can easily pass on data and orders.
Agro apps (think of iSoyl, T4C, AMS notifier)
With poor internet, your options are simply very limited.

Living on a farm is great, until you need fast internet. Not just when the children start studying. The internet is a necessary part of modern life for the whole family.
Rural areas: this sounds like not many homes but nothing could be further from the truth.
Almost a third of the UK’s population lives in the prosperous and fertile South East of England, mainly in urban areas.
So two-thirds live in the outskirts / in the countryside. Just calculate how many people, households and businesses that is…

What are the possibilities for internet in the countryside ?

In the UK there are fortunately very good possibilities for a fast and stable internet connection in the outlying area.
If you do not have a fibre optic , you can choose from the following options:
Via the telephone network
Via the (television) cable
Via the 4G and 5G network
Via satellite
Via point to point
Check here for an article about the possibilities for fast internet without fibre optics.

Interesting to mention are 2 projects that have been started for those areas of the world where there is no 4G coverage.
Project Loon
Starlink

Project Loon:
Project Loon is (…was…) the name of a project started in June 2013 by Google Inc.
Because two-thirds of the world’s population does not have an internet connection, Google tried to bring internet to those areas using hot air balloons equipped with Wi-Fi equipment. They would hover at an altitude of 20 km in the stratosphere.
Google’s plan was to eventually create an uninterrupted internet connection.
On 22 January 2021, Alastair Westgarth, CEO of Loon, announced that the programme was being stopped. Producing the balloons would no longer be financially feasible.

Starlink:
Starlink is a satellite network that has been under construction since 2015. The first satellites were launched in 2018. It is a project of Elon Musk’s US space company SpaceX for providing internet access. By placing thousands of satellites in a low Earth orbit (at an altitude of +/- 1100 to 1300 Km), the company wants to be able to deliver broadband internet worldwide.
Starlink wants to be available on the largest part of the Earth. The north and south poles are exceptions to this.
On Wikipedia there is more information about this project, it also keeps track of when new satellites are put into the atmosphere and how many!

Risks to rural businesses if internet connection is not secure

If a farmer does not have the security of the business system in order, a lot of damage can occur.
In the agricultural sector, digitisation is increasing rapidly. The ‘Internet of Things’, smart farming and the possibility of digitally controlling large parts of farms provide unprecedented opportunities.
Automatic cooling of products, milking robots, climate control in stables or greenhouses and feed computers. It is becoming more and more commonplace and is usually directly connected to the Internet.
Convenient, because it can be monitored and controlled remotely. At the same time, this also brings with it new risks.
On a farm, business and private life are often intertwined. The children do their homework or chat on a computer which houses the business administration and is connected to the milking robot.
If such a system is hacked, for example to hold it hostage for compensation, it has major consequences.
Farmers are not ICT experts. That’s fine, because their expertise lies elsewhere.
Tip: Get hold of a good IT party that can help you set up the network properly and safely.
With some simple tools, such as a data safe for passwords, you can already increase security.
