ITS Technology Brings Superfast Broadband to Part of Teesside UK

The ITS Technology Group has joined forces with the Wilton Centre in order to launch a new “superfast” hybrid fibre optic and fixed wireless broadband ISP network, which is designed to reach poorly served businesses and possibly even homes around part of Teesside.

Sadly the press release doesn’t clarify precisely which areas are covered or what speeds are available over the new network, although it does state that the prices start from £30 per month. However we assume that it will cover all premises on or around the Wilton Centre’s local business and science park.

In other areas ITS already uses existing infrastructure (e.g. buildings, ducts and masts) to support 22 full fibre and hybrid networks across the United Kingdom, such as in London (Hammersmith & Fulham), Bristol, Hereford, Nottingham and Tameside. By contrast the press release claims that the “majority of homes and businesses” in the new Teesside network area are currently served by slower “legacy networks“.

David Cullen, ITS Director of Strategy, said:

“Having been active in the Teesside area for a number of years, we have seen that broadband speeds, access to high speed connectivity, and reliability can be a postcode lottery creating connectivity blackspots. Partnering with the Wilton Centre, we have provided an alternative network that offers choice and competitively priced services that do not compromise on speed or quality of service.”

Ben Houchen, Mayor of the Tees Valley, said:

“Fast, reliable broadband is no longer regarded as something you can live without. People choose to buy a house based on how good the internet connection is, and businesses are choosing whether or not to invest in the Tees Valley based on connectivity.

If we are going to support our innovators, job creators, entrepreneurs and risk-takers then we need to make sure they have access to high speed, reliable internet connections no matter where they are in the Tees Valley.

I’m very pleased to see that ITS Technology Group and the Wilton Centre are addressing the scourge of ‘not spots’ in the region by deploying their innovative technology. I look forward to seeing the number of households and businesses suffering from poor internet connections in the Tees Valley reduced.”

End.

UPDATE 2:17pm

ITS informs that the network has a 5 mile coverage from the Wilton Centre at the moment, but this can be scaled with demand.

UPDATE 5th April 2019

We’ve also found a video that showcases the new connectivity in action at a remote location.

    Small error, it should be Middlesbrough in Teesside, although strictly speaking Teesside doesn’t exist and Wilton Centre is in Redcar and Cleveland. Confusing? You should try living here.
