This page is now out of date, but it will remain here as part of our village history! Ignore the links on it, the University projects are now over, and have left us all the better for being part of them. It was great being a Living Lab, and many of the participants are now part of the hyperfast B4RN network in the village, with gigabit symmetrica broadband in their homes and businesses.

Thank you to the University for all your work in the early days of our transformation into a digital village.


Wray - the first Lancashire wifi network hotspot, welcome to the scarecrow village!

To provide a little background about the Wray Broadband project - This was a project which started in 2003 by Lancaster Universities Computing Department with the goal of providing villagers in Wray with access to the Internet for the first time. In 2010 it underwent a major upgrade, with a new set of devices deployed to the village created by Lancaster University. The network is now capable of providing connectivity to individuals far beyond what a typical UK household would typically receive. The high speed network is now used by researchers for a number of research projects, including the next generation of TV distribution – the P2P-Next project http://www.p2p-next.org.

For more information on the Wray Broadband Project by Lancaster University please see http://www.infolab21.co.uk/livinglab/

The village also hosts the digital noticeboard project and the OurTravel TSB research volunteers.
