The UK government’s ambition is to make gigabit broadband available nationwide by 2030.

While urban and suburban areas have attracted over £10 billion in fibre network investment, rural areas remain largely unserved – due to the high cost of deploying fibre and wireless networks in rural areas.

Existing wireless networks cannot achieve gigabit speeds, and long distances nor bypass challenging geographical terrain at a commercially feasible cost.

WhiteHaul’s technology will ultimately enable wireless internet service providers (ISPs) to unlock the ‘rural gigabit opportunity’ by enabling gigabit (1Gbit/s) capability over long distances (up to 10km) over challenging non-line-of-site (NLoS) terrain.
