ITS Deploys “Ultrafast” Wireless Broadband to Rural Cheshire Estate

Thursday, November 24th, 2016 (5:30 pm) - Score 715

The ITS Technology group has improved the broadband connectivity to the Bolesworth Estate in rural South Cheshire (England) by installing a new “ultrafast” fixed wireless access network. The estate, which covers some 6,300+ acres, is home to various residential, business and leisure properties.

Apparently the existing services being offered via Openreach’s (BT) local network weren’t good enough, this might be partly because the local telephone exchange sits quite far away from the area. “Although we had considered other service providers, it was ITS that had the ability to deliver a commercial and domestic model so we could provide an inclusive solution,” said Estate Manager, Matthew Morris.

The press releases suggests that the new network has been co-funded by both ITS and the Estate, although there’s no mention of how much it cost to deploy or the price and performance of its residential packages. Likewise we don’t know precisely how many premises have been covered by the new network.

Roy Shelton, CEO of ITS, said:

“We worked hard to find a way to successfully deliver a viable yet affordable service to the area which has been overlooked by many providers for years. Our innovative approach involved looking beyond the boundaries of the Estate in order to help deliver high-speed connectivity to the wider area, therefore enabling us to provide the community with the service they so desired.”

We’ve asked for a few more details, although it’s been noted that some residents have already removed their BT lines entirely and that’s thanks to the new network.

UPDATE 7:28pm

Apparently ITS is currently offering an approved range of products from 30Mbps to 100Mbps with additional VoIP services available, prices start at £29.99 per month (based on a 12 month contract).

The initial roll-out phase is limited to 50 premises live from over 350 which the network currently covers. In January the initial phase will be extended to offer the remaining premises services along with extending the network in to other parishes, with a plan to cover over 1,000 premises by the summer 2017.
