Local Impact

Through the design and deployment of future-proof, full fibre infrastructure, we help bring the benefits of unlimited bandwidth and Gigabit speed connectivity to entire communities.


From health and social care to law enforcement, tax collection, highway maintenance and so much more, the future delivery of these services will be digital by default. A world class, fit for purpose Public Sector digital infrastructure is paramount to underpin Public services. Giving frontline staff real-time connectivity and improving operations and technology, will enable a more efficient service for citizens across the UK and the implementation of a full-fibre network will improve services for libraries, housing associations, schools and hospitals.


Connected classrooms are already a reality, not just the shift from exercise book to tablets, but digital education for children is a necessary life skill. They need the skills to ensure they are safe online. More and more the education sector requires the capacity to operate digitally.


Connected hospitals will not just be a reality for patients in America, a vision of fully integrated hospital where wireless technology allows caregivers and patients to roam throughout the hospital while providing accurate and timely monitoring is part of the NHS digital transformation strategy.
