ISP Giganet Boosts its UK Full Fibre Rollout with Anixter Deal

Friday, Jan 28th, 2022 (12:33 pm) - Score 1,752

UK ISP Giganet (M12 Solutions), which is currently investing £250m to deploy a new gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to 300,000 premises across South England (here), has today moved to boost this by contracting Anixter to support them with logistics services and supply chain solutions.

Building major new full fibre networks at scale isn’t easy and can result in various operational challenges, but firms like Anixter can help to smooth out any rough edges. We should point out that Giganet also sell full fibre products via both Openreach and Cityfibre’s growing national FTTP networks, which helps to complement their own build.

NOTE: Fern Trading backs Giganet and a number of other full fibre builds from Jurassic Fibre, Swish Fibre, AllPoints Fibre and Vorboss.

The agreement with Anixter, which will apply its supply chain management expertise to the ISP, is said to be the culmination of more than 4-months of close collaboration and discussions between the leadership teams of both companies.

The contract aims to deliver benefits to Giganet including increased speed of fulfilment, economies of scale and purchasing, operational and administrative efficiencies and cost-effective deployments.

Under the terms of the collaboration, Anixter will provide:

Stockholding and material management services

Deployment enhancement services

Vendor rationalisation and management

Passive infrastructure provisioning for ducts, sub ducts, chambers and fibre cables

Jarlath Finnegan, CEO of Giganet, said:

“This type of collaboration and innovation will ensure that Giganet can deliver on our vision to be the best ISP. We want to connect customers, and Anixter can help us achieve this in the most efficient way. We see this type of approach as a game changer within the ISP industry, allowing us the flexibility to operate nationwide without the logistic and warehousing challenges normally associated with these activities.”

Some of the first locations that are benefitting from the new rollout include Wimborne, Ferndown, Ringwood, Fordingbridge and the communities between (i.e. mostly around the Dorset and Hampshire area). The villages of Henfield (West Sussex), Devizes (Wiltshire) and Tadley (Hampshire) have also been mentioned, although we don’t know exactly how much progress has been made since the rollout began in May 2021.

    Giganet have roped most of Pulborough in West Sussex, they had some contractors down from Wales a few months ago but have yet to place any equipment.

    Both Giganet and Gigaclear seem to be building round me in Wiltshire. Nothing for years, and then suddenly 2 arrive at once, and Swish is apparently arriving soon.

    How will anyone in reality make any
    Money? Investing hundreds of millions on 300,000 customers and even if you get 25% take up which is a push with all the altnets- the profit margin in reality is tiny noting a network needs managed / maintained – service management wrap etc …
    What do the banks think will happen with their money? Payback is at least 20 to 25 years ? Are we heading for a financial car crash with these random
