Wireless ISP Boundless Networks Get UKWISPA Quality Accreditation

Alternative fixed wireless ISP Boundless Networks, which has helped to expand superfast and ultrafast broadband services to a number of UK rural areas, has officially become the latest to be awarded with a new Quality Accreditation from the UK Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (UKWISPA).

The new Quality Accreditation Programme was officially launched in September 2018 (details) and aims to help ensure that wireless ISPs are able to deliver the “very highest standards of service and reliability to their customers“, although some aspects of the related code may only be effective if the majority of providers agree to join (e.g. the requirement for co-existence between ISPs as good neighbours).

Separately we note that the Independent Networks Co-operative Association (INCA) are also planning to launch their own “Gold Standard Quality Mark Scheme” for wireless, as well as fibre optic and hybrid fibre, services toward the end of this year (details); details have yet to be finalised. Suffice to say that having two such schemes could become confusing.

David Hood, Boundless Networks Chairman, said:

“We are really proud to be awarded the UKWISPA Quality Mark. We provide some of the fastest and most reliable broadband connections to homes and businesses across the North, where other providers have failed to supply high speed internet.

We have invested heavily in the very latest fibre and wireless technologies allowing us to build a network that can supply and extend from a dense urban environment to small towns and villages and then reach out to the many sparsely populated areas within our coverage area.

Alongside this we have developed an astute, customer-focused team intent on delivering the very best service at all times.”

End.

    Well done to Boundless, they have provided a great wifi connection for many people for a long time, saving them from a life on dial up. Richly deserved accreditation. I know quite a few of their satisfied customers.

    Full disclosure surely needed here…

    Boundless Networks’ MD (David Burns) is the founder/chairman of UKWISPA and heavily involved in all aspects of UKWISPA’s running – although these days there is a larger ‘board’.

    The only other WISP awarded this accreditation is linked to Boundless too, as Signa’s MD sold his old WISP to Boundless.

    Factually wrong but hey. I can assure you we at Signa worked hard to be accredited and have no affiliation with Boundless other than being a member of UKWISPA and the fact we actually compete in some areas.

    I believe, looking through our accreditation pack, the majority of the scores are marked by other members of UKWISPA and not the chairman.

    If you would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    The accreditation criteria do not appear not onerous and what I would have expected. So the real question is why more of the members have yet to achieve the accreditation.
