This project was funded on 25 Jun 2013!

The town is constructing a 1Gb 'fibre to the premise' broadband network with free community wifi in the town centre supported by local business. The network is being built by UK company Gigaclear.
It is proposed to mount a high quality wifi powered web cam in the market place with 24/7 online access.
Online viewers will be able to view a series of major community events in the market place, including the famous Stilton Cheese Classic Vehicle event and the unique Uppingham Fatstock Show.

Viewers will be made aware of the camera by a series of Twitter and Facebook campaigns and a link on the Uppingham First web site at .

What we'll deliver:

  • Purchase, install and operate the webcam

Why it's a great idea:

It will draw upon the town's new technological capability and stimulate interest in the town and its High Street.
Major events will be viewable online.

Steps to get it done:

  • Using local company Rutland Telecom

Planning permission to install the webcam will be sought.
