Broadway is pioneering the commercial use of line of sight radio and TV WhiteSpace radio to connect remote rural communities.  Using radio spectrum made available by the shift from analogue to digital TV, the technology is uniquely capable in the challenging geographies that are typical of rural areas, where trees, hills and low population densities typically preclude the use of conventional radio or fibre solutions.

With the UK and Europe’s first commercial deployment of TV WhiteSpace, on the Isle of Arran in Scotland, and other networks now operational in Inverness-shire and Perthshire in Scotland and Monmouthshire in Wales, Broadway has proven the power, flexibility and viability of broadband networks using a mix of technologies to deliver high speed broadband to 100% of the community, regardless of geography.

The deal with Souter Investments will allow Broadway to roll out its business model across the UK and continue to develop its pioneering technology.
