TV Whitespace (TVWS) Technology

We are pioneering the use of WhiteSpace technology on the Isle of Arran, the first commercial deployment in Europe.

The spectrum is tailor made for remote, hard-to-reach rural areas, delivering great quality broadband even through trees and around hills. We are currently trialing the latest generation of this technology, delivering an impressive 40Mbps. 100Mbps is just around the corner.

We are working with the world’s leading experts in WhiteSpace technology – Microsoft, Nominet, the Strathclyde University and King’s College London – ensuring that residents and businesses get the best of the best.

We are also using more conventional 5GHz radio technology where we have ‘line-of-sight’ to our customers. While TV WhiteSpace is fast, 5GHz is even faster – so if you are not surrounded by trees or tucked away behind hills, you can expect even more from us.


Our Promise

Our ambition is to cover the whole of the UK with Whitespace radio – a technology that is perfectly suited to meeting the rural broadband challenge.

Following the success of our launch project in Arran, we have a number of projects in construction across Scotland and Wales, and soon also in England.

If your community is suffering from poor quality broadband and your current provider is running out of steam, then please register your interest in receiving our service, by clicking here. The more interest shown, the quicker we can come.
