In this talk, I give an overview of my research in the area of rural Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) networks, illustrating the three main projects at the core of my PhD thesis:

1) The "Tegola" network: Our wireless testbed which, for the last three years, has provided Internet access to the residents of the most remote communities in Britian.

2) Mapping the availability and speed of broadband with the "BSense" system, generating real-time geographical map of perceived broadband quality.

3) Operate large-scale BWA networks using "Stix", our system for goal-oriented management based on a visual programming language and low-cost embedded hardware dongles.

I will conclude outlining our view of how wireless broadband can be used to connect remote communities to the Internet.
