About IX Wireless

Cost effective, ultra-fast internet. Achieved with minimal disruption.

Introducing IX Wireless

IX Wireless launched in 2017 with one simple mission: to bring 21st-century digital infrastructure to towns and cities across the North West and beyond.

Our unique approach means we build faster and more efficiently than competitors. IX Wireless roll-outs cost 90% less than traditional ‘dig and cover’ operations.

Since then, our network has expanded through towns in the north west offering broadband to thousands of residential and commercial premises.

Leaving no one behind

IX Wireless believes everyone has the right to access the internet.

We donate 20% of our network coverage giving free broadband connections to those otherwise digitally excluded. Working with and supporting local organisations our scheme extends to supplying a free connection to essential service providers such as charities, schools and community groups.

We call it the ‘Internet for Everyone Campaign.’

Working with local communities and Councils we receive referrals for those without internet, we help bridge the digital divide by providing a connection for free. Allowing them to access vital online services such as healthcare, benefit support and education in today’s digital world.

A brief history of IX Wireless

Our Blackburn Network launched in 2020, with over 33,000 homes passed. Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Digital, called it "a levelling up game changer" for the town’s residents and local businesses.

2021 saw IX Wireless build five more networks in the North West of England.

IX Wireless then launched in Blackpool during the summer of 2022 with expansion into more towns moving fast.

Looking ahead

The IX Wireless story is just beginning.

Our future plans include major network expansions into several northern towns and urban areas, passing an additional 400,000 homes and business premises.

The target is 4 million properties passed by the end of 2025.
