ITS Technology Invests Extra GBP1m into its UK Broadband Infrastructure

Wednesday, Jul 22nd, 2015 (9:14 am) - Score 535

The ITS Technology Group, which builds and runs various superfast wireless and fixed line broadband networks around the United Kingdom, has announced that it’s investing another £1 million into upgrading and expanding their national broadband footprint.

The firm states that they’re currently the number one supplier to the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK managed Connection Voucher scheme in Greater Manchester and Liverpool (i.e. grants worth up to £3,000 to help SME businesses install superfast broadband). ITS’s position then falls to the still respectable place of no.4 on a national scale.

Overall ITS has so far signed up over 1,800 businesses in the North West, which includes 300 of the 1000 businesses located on Knowsley Business Park in Merseyside, and they’re also active in seven other regions across the UK. Not to mention their work in helping to connect some residential properties to faster broadband.

As such it’s understandable that ITS would want to invest in order to improve growth and some of that will include money to upgrade their 17km cable duct and fibre optic assets in Hammersmith and Fulham, which alongside partner ISP Fluidata will be able to reach 22,000 businesses with superfast and ultrafast broadband (“ultrafast” usually means 100Mbps+).

David Cullen, ITS’s Director of Strategy, said:

ITS has been a supplier to the BDUK connection voucher scheme since the pilot scheme began in June 2013 and became an accredited supplier in 2014. The appetite for superfast broadband has been phenomenal, as so many pockets of the UK have been overlooked and been left digitally stranded.

We have, and continue to invest heavily in bringing affordable connectivity to these areas, which includes purpose built business parks, that have been campaigning for better broadband for years. For example, Knowsley Business Park in Merseyside, Pride Park in Derby, and Salmon Business Village in Oldham, to name a few. It means that thousands of SMEs now have access to superfast and even ultrafast broadband which has transformed their digital capabilities.”

Piers Daniell, MD of Fluidata, said:

The ability to deliver services over fibre to the premises [FTTP] without the need of using a traditional Tier-1 carrier means services can be delivered in a different timescale and with a unique commercial proposition.

With fibre already available for quick deployment by the ISPs connected into our Service Exchange Platform, customers can be served quickly. Through ITS there is a unique proposition to businesses and consumers in the Hammersmith and Fulham area for high speed connectivity.”

ITS currently claims to be active, via the Connection Voucher scheme, in Manchester, Trafford, Salford, Tameside, Liverpool, Knowlsey, Oldham, Leeds, Coventry, Derby, London and York. Further work is also being undertaken in order to prepare for their launch into Sheffield and more parts of North East England.
