News > Accelerating rural roll-out with new partnership

Wessex Internet has partnered with construction technology leader Render Networks to accelerate the regional deployment of its fibre network over the next decade.

Wessex Internet’s fibre network spans the countryside of Dorset, South Wiltshire, South Somerset, and parts of Hampshire. When added to its network of over 150 wireless masts the company can provide a superfast connection to tens of thousands of homes and businesses in the south west of the UK.

Render’s deployment technology removes the complexity of network rollouts with real-time, geospatial data flows and the delivery of daily optimised tasks to Wessex Internet’s construction teams. These unique capabilities streamline the end-to-end construction process.

Hector Gibson Fleming, CEO of Wessex Internet said: “Access to a gigabit capable connection is becoming increasingly vital, but often rural communities are the last to benefit from new technologies and infrastructure. One of the biggest challenges is organising and accurately recording the vast amount of work our teams undertake across a dispersed rural geography. We’re delighted to partner with Render to help us accelerate progress and drive efficiencies across our network construction processes.”

“This is an exciting partnership for Render. We’re eager to bring the same innovation that’s enabling future-proof connectivity in Australia and the United States to the UK at a time when all communities across the country need it most. We are thrilled to be part of the solution,” Sam Pratt, CEO at Render Networks added.
