Skyline Wireless acquired by fibre fast-tracker Gigabit Networks

Skyline Wireless, a telecoms and VOIP provider based in the Cambridge technology cluster, has been acquired by ultrafast fibre specialist Gigabit Networks for an undisclosed sum.

Gigabit Networks is a ‘city champion’ partner of CityFibre which is investing nearly £4 billion to build dense pure fibre networks in more than 60 cities across the UK.

Skyline, based in Haverhill, is a specialist provider of ‘last mile’ wireless internet connectivity via radio and 4/5G networks, as well as cloud-based services and security products to SME businesses.

The acquisition allows Gigabit, which is based in Leicester, to provide greater connectivity and internet in areas that have struggled for bandwidth.

Dan Ilett, CEO of Gigabit Networks, said: “We’re delighted Skyline is joining the Gigabit family. The pandemic has created massive demand for faster and better-quality connectivity. We can now not only make central city businesses faster, but more rural areas too.”

Skyline Wireless deploys radio and 4/5G technology to SME businesses in the East of England.

The company also offers a range of ‘over the top’ services such as UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service), VOIP (Voice Over Protocol Internet) and managed WiFi services that allow SME’s to compete with larger businesses at what it describes as “a fraction of the cost.”
