Ontix works with local government to widen access to next-generation wireless connectivity across communities. We help to reduce the digital divide, support strong economic growth and provide a platform for transformative Smart City applications that enhance the way we live and work

Due to the shift to increased home and flexible working, the need for reliable, gigabit networks has never been greater. Both broadband providers and mobile operators have become critical utility suppliers – ensuring that we stay connected with family and friends, boosting productivity and opportunities for businesses

For local authorities, we offer a streamlined, Open Access solution that harnesses councils’ street furniture and property assets to deliver mobile users with better, faster mobile coverage from all the major operators.  Ontix has pioneered Open Access solutions for local government – including landmark deployments across Westminster City Council

We can swiftly and efficiently roll-out next-generation, 5G-ready infrastructure to ensure that businesses, residents and visitors benefit from high-quality mobile voice and data service. This supports the vitality and re-generation of the high street, delivering high-quality coverage throughout key commercial areas and high-demand business districts

We work closely with the UK Department of Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) to ensure that we’re fully compliant with OJEU procurement regulations and State Aid rules

Open Access for a Smart City future

Through our innovative Metrohaul neutral host architecture, we promote a non-exclusive, Open Access model, allowing any mobile operator to use our wireless network infrastructure to deliver small cell network densification

Our Open Access Metrohaul network creates a future-proof, next-generation wireless mesh spanning entire boroughs that can power Smart City and IoT initiatives and drive new digital strategies
