Bluewave Expand Wireless Broadband Network in Wales UK with TFL Acquisition

Fixed wireless broadband ISP Bluewave Internet, which tends to focus on the counties of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire in Wales, has announced the acquisition of the TFL broadband network that operates in some of the same areas (this is for an undisclosed sum).

The TFL Group (Wales Broadband) has been around in Wales since as far back as 1983, although in recent years we haven’t heard all that much from them. Bluewave has also been around for a good few years and the provider believes that the new acquisition will help them to create the “largest wireless broadband network in Wales.”

Apparently the deal will give Bluewave access to another 30+ mast locations, which should help to extend their network coverage into more areas. At this time the precise details are unclear, although the TFL Group has written the following letter to their existing customers.

Dear TFL Broadband Customer,

My father started TFL in 1983 as an electrical engineer and then a few years later he combined it with his interest in amateur radio to begin offering 2-way radio services. For the last 20 years we have worked together, developing an extensive network which enabled us to increase the radio services we offered, working with Local Authorities, the Oil and Gas industries and then to provide wireless broadband services to rural communities.

Unfortunately, my father recently passed away after a battle with illness. As you can imagine, this has had an enormous impact not only on myself and my family, but on the whole team. I personally have found the last 12 months incredibly difficult, and for that reason I now feel that I need to step away from the business and spend some time with my family.

With this in mind we have agreed a deal to combine the TFL broadband network with Bluewave Internet, a local and successful wireless internet provider. It has not been an easy decision but it is an opportunity I feel is best for the ongoing structure and growth of the business, and continued service to yourselves. This merger combines extensive knowledge and experience and will see TFL Broadband rebranded as Bluewave Internet.

I would like to thank you for your custom, loyalty throughout the years, and patience during this difficult time, I know you will be very happy with the exciting developments that are about to take place with your broadband connection and service provision. The current TFL team you have known for many years are fully integrated into this progressive merger and will continue to be on hand as part of the seamless transition.

Please find enclosed an introductory letter from Bluewave, they will continue full provision of your service from 1st November 2017. If we could ask you to cancel your existing TFL Standing Order or BACS transfer details with your bank, the service payment and continuity with Bluewave can be easily set up using the link provided.

Thank you again and best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan England BA
Managing Director
TFL-Group

Bluewave generally offers their subscribers a mix of packages, which starts at £18 per month for a 20Mbps connection (10GB usage) and then rises to £49.99 for an unlimited 30Mbps connection (usually on a 12 month contract term).

    Surely, as technology improves, fixed wireless must increasingly be the solution for rural areas? Is it that deplloyment is being discouraged because of the perceived threat of taxpayer-funded fibre undermining the business?
