Daniel HeeryProject Manager at Cybermoor
In 2002 Daniel set up Cybermoor 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. He was a founder member of Independent Networks Co-operative Association and Community Broadband Network and is a Director of both organisations. He also runs Charge my Street, a new social enterprise delivering electric vehicle charging points in rural areas in partnership with community buildings and renewable energy providers.
