New Wireless ISP Might Solve Rotherhithe’s Slow Broadband in London

The broadband woes expressed by residents of Rotherhithe in south east London are nothing new (example), but a new wireless provider called BWiFi has recently popped up in the area and is promising download speeds of up to 50-75Mbps (Megabits per second).

At this stage not much is known about the company, which was officially incorporated on 15th February 2016 and appears to be controlled by director Roy Evans (details). The website is also missing some information (e.g. blank FAQ page) and there only appears to be a difficult to spot ‘Pre Order Form‘ for those with an interest.

On the technical front BWiFi claims to have its “own internet backbone” and to be building a network based on fixed wireless GPS Sync TDMA technology, which they say adapts some of the features of the WiFi Standard (802.11AC Wave AP). Apparently this will allow their network, when it goes live, to “scale very quickly from 1.7Gbps per site to 20Gbps, making us the fastest ever wireless network in the UK” (shared capacity).

At present their Coverage Map doesn’t seem to work, but we’ll keep an eye on them for any developments and several Twitter posts indicate that a launch could occur by the end of July 2016. The ISP plans to offer three packages, two for residential users and one for business connections.

    There is certainly a market gap of thousands of premises stuck with 1-4 Mbit/s ADSL as long as Openreach, Virgin Media and Hyperoptic are slow to expand their existing Rotherhithe networks and Relish does not close the gap in its LTE fixed-wireless coverage between Bermondsey, Wapping and the Isle of Dogs

    But in south London people might raise an eyebrow about a company with an thin website, where the Companies House documents suggest it was only incorporated in February 2016, with two of the leading individuals sharing a surname (married?) though one is from Benin and the other Lithuania
