Gigabit Networks acquires Skyline Wireless

CityFibre partner Gigabit Networks is targeting a greater swathe of bandwidth-lite areas in the east Midlands region following its acquisition of Skyline Wireless.

Haverhill-based Skyline delivers last mile wireless Internet connectivity via radio and 4/5G networks. The firm also provides UCaaS, VoIP and security solutions to SMEs.

From its Leicester base Gigabit Networks will provide connectivity and Internet in regional areas with below par bandwidth.

“The pandemic has created massive demand for faster and better quality connectivity," stated Gigabit Networks CEO Dan Ilett (pictured).

"We can now not only make central city businesses faster, but more rural areas too.” 

David Yates, CEO of 4 Oceans Venture Capital which has invested in Gigabit Networks, noted: “The Midlands is one of the most exciting places to do business right now as the connectivity potential is huge.

"Most people in the Midlands haven’t realised the potential speeds and technology that are now available to them. Gigabit and Skyline will change that.”
