How churches are improving wi-fi access in rural England?

Interesting piece:

The initiative stems from an agreement between the Church of England and the UK government, and comes more than two years after former prime minister David Cameron promised to bring fast broadband to all UK homes and businesses by 2020. Many small communities in the UK do not have access to speedy internet, and the new arrangement is expected to improve Wi-Fi connections in up to a million properties.

“Churches are central features and valued assets for local communities up and down the country,” secretary of state Matt Hancock says in a statement. “This agreement with the Church of England will mean that even a 15th century building can help make Britain fit for the future, improving people’s lives by boosting connectivity in some of our hardest-to-reach areas.”

….

Using one’s smart phone during church services is, presumably, still discouraged.
