Turning Our Knowledge Into Your Profit

Building and optimising fixed operations

Our small team has simply unmatched experience, having built operations from the ground up for ourselves (across four continents) and for other operators.  That means we know how to develop, build and grow operations and deliver results rather than irrelevant advice and reports.

We have worked on two National Broadband Networks, three utility companies moving to deliver FTTH across their network and the World's first gigabit 'everywhere' incument.

We provide a next-generation style of consulting reflecting our values and practical, results driven approach combined with many years experience in telecom operational management, strategy and finance.

We understand different strategies and implementation choices because we have:

  • created fixed and mobile based businesses for others;
  • developed FTTX strategies at board level for operators such as STC – including millions of homes passed and billions of investment;
  • studied, and worked on implementing, the full range of business strategies, models and technologies from leasing dark fibre through to open access, from DSL to WiMAX, from GPRS to HSPA ;
  • invested in, and built, fibre based business for ourselves – including a 120,000 subscriber fibre broadband company in Sweden. This now passes nearly one million homes and delivers 100 mbps symmetric services to consumers.
  • co-owned the number one open access, comms operator in Sweden (the clear number one in the most advanced market);
  • co-founded a leading global open access, comms operator with clients on three continents and powering the number one FTTH operator in South Africa (Vumatel);
  • carried out due diligence operations on businesses across fixed and mobile technologies;
  • developed expertise that means we now run workshops on FTTx, WiMAX and broadband business modelling and strategies (at FTTH Council Conferences in Europe and the Middle East, for the FTTH Forum, at ‘FTTX MEGNA’, ‘WiMAX MEGNA’, Broadband Congress and for operators in Oman, KSA, UAE etc);
  • led strategy development, commercial operations and technical assessment for next generation network operators;
  • built numerous business models for broadband operators – meaning we can apply global and regional benchmarks whilst understanding what the real business drivers are
  • experience of deploying ~20,000 kms of fibre
