Building future-proof digital infrastructure for the UK
Cost effective, ultra-fast internet. Achieved with minimal disruption.
2022 saw the completion of detailed plans for five networks in towns across the North West of England, including Blackburn, Burnley, Nelson, Accrington and Blackpool.
Forecasts for the remainder of 2022 included reaching an additional 250,000 premises, taking the total number of possible connections to over 500,000.
Further plans include several major network expansions into more northern towns and urban areas, reaching an additional 450,000 homes and business premises.
The target is to reach 950,000 premises by the end of 2023.
The longer-term goal is to reach more than 4 million properties by the end of 2025.
With its fibre ring technology, the IX Wireless Network is a fast and cost-effective way of deploying Full Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) broadband to at least 25% of the towns we operate in.
We expect about 20% of consumers and businesses within these towns to purchase FTTP broadband.
The network will also focus on industrial, commercial, and suburban areas that are traditionally hard to reach with a wireless connection due to environmental issues.
Ultra-Fast Fibre Roll-Out
IX Wireless gigabit network launched
The gigabit broadband network across the north west was officially launched in Blackburn.
Oliver Dowden CBE, spoke about the ‘game changing’ network being rolled out across the region in a virtual launch.
What is IX Wireless
We’re building the UK’s future digital infrastructure, replacing old-fashioned copper wire networks with optic cables and air fibre technology.
Our networks are strong, secure, and deliver data at superfast speeds for less cost than many other providers.
This is a 21st-century, game-changing network to power the UK’s digital revolution for generations to come.
The IX Wireless Full Fibre Roll Out
IX Wireless networks are live in towns and cities across the North West.
With more than 170,000 properties passed to receive fast and affordable broadband in the North West.
And we’re just getting started. We’re building new networks all the time, with a target to surpass 4 million properties passed by the end of 2025.
How Does IX Wireless Work?
We use a unique combination of fibre optic cables and wireless technology to guarantee reliable and faster internet.
Carrying fibre cables overhead and then wirelessly transmitting the signal directly to a transmitter fitted on the property.
Building the IX Wireless Network
We’re a fixed wireless network.
We don’t dig up or close roads during builds; minimising disruptions to the local community.
An IX Wireless build is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to bring high-speed internet to smaller towns and areas that were traditionally hard to reach.
