Eight new Faster Britain locations revealed
ITS Technology Group has revealed an additional eight Faster Britain locations increasing its full fibre footprint across London, the Midlands, and the Northwest.
The wholesale operator is on track to pass 25% / 500,000 UK businesses (Ordinance Survey OS Open UPRN data set) by the end of this year.
Having recently secured a further £100m from Aviva Investors, ITS continues its multi-million pound Faster Britain rollout at pace, which from the start of the year has now added Burnley, Trafford Park, Wigan, Wilmslow, Handforth, Camden, Enfield, and Mayfair, and extended its Birmingham core network beyond the city centre.
ITS has the capabilities to install ultrafast connectivity to any business in the UK using its own infrastructure or that of its trusted operator partners. By providing open access wholesale networks, ITS’ 300 plus IT reseller, Internet Service Provider, and Managed Service Provider partners can order connectivity solutions for their end-users via ITS’ purpose built self-service partner portal or using the API.
I am delighted that Faster Britain is already making a difference in these towns and cities as businesses switch to services over our independent full fibre networks. We continue to focus on building where there is pent up demand for high quality connectivity.
We have invested heavily in our wholesale provision and delivery capabilities in order to provide the access and infrastructure that makes it easy for our partners to provide connectivity solutions for their customers. We use XGS-PON technology to build and install which means the same connection can scale from basic broadband to a 10Gbps Ethernet leased lineDaren Baythorpe, CEO of ITS
By reusing existing infrastructure to build networks, known as ‘dig once’, ITS minimises the impact on local communities. It can also install customer connections far quicker than the industry norm.
Faster Britain partners can access the entire network footprint as a layer 1 (dark fibre), layer 2 (wholesale), or as a layer 3 (internet) connection. For more information on becoming an ITS partner and joining ITS’ Faster Britain programme visit https://itstechnologygroup.com/become-partner/
