A word from the CEO - October 2017
The recent 4-5 weeks have been as hectic as usual within the ITS camp as we continue to meet the growing demand for our highspeed and ultra-fast broadband services.
As a direct result of receiving funding from Maven Capital Partners, ITS have invested heavily in carrier grade Huawei hardware, used to power our core local and National Network. Adding the role of traditional ISP to our portfolio, each of our 21 networks now connects directly to the internet. ITS customers will benefit from the very latest Huawei hardware installations as future network scalability is guaranteed and more competitive packages will become available.
The continued hard work of our team has seen more successful installations at The Wilton Centre. We have also secured some exciting new opportunities which include, ex England Rugby star – Phil Greening’s Athlete Factory, the telemetry network for Swedish tidal energy company Minesto, Imperial College London and Community Fibre also have placed significant orders for fibre connectivity on our London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham network. We are pleased to report that more orders have been placed on our Bristol and Hereford concession, along with growing our valued client base at Welford Park, Portman Burtley, Alscot Park, Nostel Priory and Doncaster Airport Business Park. We have some news to share with you on Gigabit Bristol Broadband Vouchers which will be available from 1st November.
Later this month I will be attending the two-day Total Telecom Congress in London which features over 120 speakers, focusing on the biggest issues that the telecoms industry faces. Discussions will follow where industry leaders will consider issues ranging from understanding the digital telco to delivering winning customer-centric business models. Industry professional will also be giving attention to and sharing their opinions on realising video everywhere to maximise the full fibre, fixed wireless and 5G opportunities.
I’m pleased to announce our Silver sponsorship of the INCA Conference on 16th November in Newcastle. Daren Baythorpe and Lisa Harding will be representing ITS at the conference during which the Minister for Digital, Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, will give the keynote speech; discussions will follow on progress in the year since INCA published the Building Gigabit Britain report.
