Wireless ISP Rural Technologies Wales to Build FTTP Broadband

Monday, December 2nd, 2019 (12:04 pm) - Score 1,033

The owner of UK fixed wireless broadband ISP Rural Technologies Wales (Hen Beudy Services Ltd) has revealed that they intend to start deploying a new Gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, which will initially begin in Wales before extending across the border into the western counties of England.

At present the provider is based in the Brecon Beacons and works to both install and manage wireless broadband networks, which can deliver speeds of up to 100Mbps. Sadly the website is sparse on any mention of either their existing network coverage or package details, which is why we don’t list them on ISPreview.co.uk (no details to show).

Despite this the provider has just put in new application for Code Powers from Ofcom, which can help to speed-up the deployment of new fibre optic networks and cut costs by reducing the number of licenses needed for street works. The provider will also make use of various Government voucher schemes in order to help fund this work.

As part of that the operator states that “FWA [wireless] technology is not scalable for large urban network deployments” and it therefore proposes to deploy a new FTTP network instead, which will start in Wales and then extend to the western (border) counties of England. Sadly there are no further mentions of any time-scale or detailed roll-out plans.

Apparently this new full fibre network is to be owned and installed by Hen Beudy Services and operated by their sister company – Beacons Telecoms (all based at the same address). The provider intends to harness Openreach’s (BT) existing cable ducts and poles in order to run some of their own fibre, while customers can expect speeds from 50Mbps and up to 1Gbps.

Separately another company – I4 Technology Group (formerly the BFN Group Limited) – has also put in an application for Code Powers in order to help them build FTTP into new build homes. However this is less of a surprise because the I4T group includes both Pure Fibre Housing and British Fibre Networks, both of which we’ve covered before (here).

    Great that the wifi altnets are moving into fibre. It is a shame that our incumbent hasn’t done the job, but competition is King. Good luck to them all.
