Building a new network


IX Wireless is coming to Tameside, bringing a new high-speed broadband network that will benefit the entire community.

Final plans are underway to ensure that the network is built and maintained. Once complete, it will provide enough download

speed and stability for seamless streaming, superfast gaming, online learning, and remote workers.

Digital inclusion in Tameside

At IX Wireless, we believe no one should be left behind in the digital age. That`s why we`re looking for local schools, charities, and community groups that can benefit from free internet access.

As part of our Internet for Everyone campaign, we donate 20% of our network coverage to good causes in every town where we build a new network.

Planning considerations

Our broadband installation won`t disrupt your local community.

At IX Wireless, we use air-fibre technology to deliver high-speed broadband directly to residential and business premises. That means we don`t dig or cover, minimising noise pollution and road closures.

Our communication masts are made from sustainable materials.

We have the necessary permits from Ofcom to construct our infrastructure on public highways. Our development license means we can start building without applying for planning permission.

Communication strategy

We maintain an open and consistent communication strategy with the public during every stage of a network installation.

Our communication policy includes:

  • Keeping the local community informed on upcoming builds
  • Site notices no later than four weeks in advance where possible
  • Confirmed start date letters posted to local properties no later than ten days in advance where possible

And we always encourage community members to offer feedback or suggestions for improvement.

How the network delivers full fibre broadband

Our cabinets are directly linked to data centres, which sends fibre to the cabinet.

Our telegraph poles then carry fibre cables overhead from the cabinet to our transmitter (broadcasting mast).

The fibre signal is then sent wirelessly from the transmitter to a small receiver fitted to the property.

The transmitter is cabled directly to the router, delivering fibre speeds to the router.
