How does IX Wireless fixed
wireless technology operate?

IX Wireless deliver internet access using radio frequencies that eradicate the need for disruptive digging up of the roads and the effect this has on local residents and the environment.

We install a localised, networked transmitter and receiver mast that covers an area up to 3km, enabling consumers and businesses to join our network via a small aerial installed on the customer’s property.

The planned completion of Phase one of the IX Wireless network will deliver connectivity to over 5,000 sites in all UK major towns and cities.

Our reach will enable 5 million addresses to experience the advantages of our next generation technology, many of whom would have poor internet access had it not been for IX Wireless.

Internet access has evolved over the last 20 years from the slow dial-up modems that accompanied personal computers, to the wireless and broadband services of today.

However not so well understood is that there are competing technologies for the delivery of internet access to consumers. Consumers of 20 years ago saw first generation dial-up as the norm, with slow and intermittent speeds at expensive tariffs.

Copper and then fibre has replaced this although they can also offer sporadic consumer coverage, disruptive installation experiences and long periods of return on investment which often deliver variations in performance most prevalent in busy periods.

The buzz word in the fibre industry is FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet). This means fibre laid to a centralised local point and then distributed in underground ducts that in many instances must be laid or excavated causing great financial and environmental issues.
