In 2003 Daniel set up Cybermoor Ltd in the North Pennines, the first rural broadband co-op in the country and has since worked on several projects to improve broadband in some of the remotest parts of the UK. He has raised the finance, built and managed wireless and fibre networks in Cumbria and Scotland. Stimulating demand for digital services is key for groups in rural areas through projects such as the “flying shepherd” enabling farmers to track livestock using drones. Daniel has delivered telehealth projects to support carers and elderly people which rely on good connectivity in Northumberland and Cumbria. The 5GRIT project is a UK Government testbed for 5G services which will aim to extend the capability of drones using 5G technologies for smart agriculture and is managed by Daniel. He was a founder member of Independent Networks Co-operative Association and Community Broadband Network and is a Director of both organisations. He is the company secretary for Charge my Street, a new social enterprise delivering electric vehicle charging points in rural areas in partnership with community buildings and renewable energy providers.
