Emtelle to Supply Ogi’s Full Fibre Broadband Rollout in Wales

Emtelle UK, which is a global manufacturer of blown fibre and ducted network solution, has secured a multi-million pound contract to support Phase One of Ogi‘s £200m project (here) – backed by Infracapital – to deploy a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network to 150,000 premises in South Wales by 2025.

Under Emtelle’s new 3-year deal, the company will supply Ogi with various primary duct, subducts, microducts and fibre components. The company will also provide support and training as part of this partnership, which has already begun.

As well as using Emtell’’s passive solutions for its own networks, Ogi is also building a lot of their new network by using Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA) solutions to run fibre via Openreach’s existing access network infrastructure (cable ducts etc.). Emtelle’s proposition includes a range of PIA compliant solutions to meet this requirement.

Simon Wade, Sales Manager at Emtelle, said:

“It has been a pleasure to work with the team at Ogi during the consultation, tendering and awarding processes, and we are looking forward to building on that relationship. As the demand for ultrafast connectivity continues to rise, so does the need for a reliable network infrastructure. Emtelle is proud to supply a full solution product range to support Ogi as it seeks to achieve its ambitious goal to connect rural and underserved communities over the next few years.”

Ben Allwright, Ogi CEO, said:

“As Ogi grows, we must work with partners that understand our drive to meet our ambitious targets to enhance connectivity across the region to support business, residential customers, communities, and our public sector. Our goal is to create a world-class network, and we believe Emtelle can help us achieve this. Emtelle has shown how dedicated it is to providing reliable, future-proof fibre networks and are as committed to delivering an increasingly essential service to communities as we are at Ogi. We look forward to working with Emtelle to create a more connected Wales over the next few years.”

Towns and villages in Monmouthshire, the Vale of Glamorgan and Pembrokeshire, will be amongst the first to benefit from all this work and, if all goes according to plan, then Ogi may expand their ambition to cover 350,000 premises across Wales. The aim is to connect as many underserved communities as possible over the coming years.

    From what I’ve seen Ogi’s interpretation of “undeserved communities” includes those served by Openreach’s FTTP network. Especially some of those early areas. Or at the very least already partly served by Openreach. (Rhoose, Abergavenny).

      “undeserved” ? Or “underserved” ?

    Emtelle are an awesome UK company, Ogi couldn’t have chosen a better supplier, and their support and training is unbelievable.

      I disagree. We operate a small fibre company and emtelle failed to honour quoted orders. They stated they have to prioritise ‘the big 5’.
      Whilst there product is good. Their service is horrific.
      Try giving them a call. Good luck if they answer.

      I just hope they remember the small people when all these contract end.
