New Internet Idea

Hi - I've developed some new technology to improve internet download speeds in the colder Winter months/ in colder climates generally. Is there a department I can share these ideas with?

Regards,

Mike Benderman

It's a no-chemicals process that works with existing hardware/ technology. People now come to my house from all over village to check their emails and the Lottery.

Re: New Internet Idea

If you have a commercially viable idea patent it, sell it, make money

aye ok... cool story bro.
if it's that good why don't you gift it to your community for free, seeing as it's that good obviously.

think you're still on the sherry from yesterday.

Re: New Internet Idea

you are extremely unlikely to get success here. if you have an idea you put a business plan together then contact someone high up at virgin directly. even then there is no guarantee it will be even looked at. most large companies will not entertain 3rd party 'ideas'. others in the industry to back things up will help.

dragons den is the best shot but again, you would need backing of others in the industry. they don't like one man bands with 'ideas' either.

it is the way of the world, companies want credible propositions.

Re: New Internet Idea

Thanks everyone. 

My wife reckons I'm mad not getting a patent, but what would I spend the money on anyhow?! I did accept a bottle of cherry wine from Bryan Bakewell that I think he'd concocted himself. There was frost on the cars outside and I let him call his son (Malcolm) in Tasmania on Christmas Eve. He reckoned it was like we were all in the same room.

I don't even care about the money - Branston can keep it! I'm not budging on the name though. It's the Winternet or I'll happily keep the drawings to myself.

Re: New Internet Idea

I've written up a business plan as per all your recommendations. Does anyone have the time to look at for me before I send it to Branston?

Regards,
