Meet the Teams

Airband is an independent internet service provider (ISP) bringing high speed broadband to homes, business and industry in rural and hard-to-reach areas. Founded in 2009, Airband works closely with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, BDUK, local authorities and communities to build high availability infrastructure that residents, businesses and other ISPs can access to help overcome the UK’s digital divide

Founded in 2014, Bath-based Truespeed was formed to help propel the left-behind communities of the South West struggling with slow, unreliable broadband into the digital fast lane with full fibre connectivity. Providing world-class connectivity to hard to reach rural areas and complex and historical cities, Truespeed uses innovative deployment techniques to bring gigabit capable broadband to businesses and residents. Tackling the digital divide by building an entirely new, ultrafast, full fibre network, Truespeed delivers some of the fastest broadband speeds in the world.   

A fast-growing local employer, we are laser-focused on staying true to our community-first ethos. From the outset we have offered free ultrafast broadband for life to primary schools and community hubs passed by our network. This ensures the whole community benefits from our network investment for generations to come. And with a broad choice of product packages, customers can find the perfect broadband solution to suit their needs.

Based in North Dorset, Wessex Internet is an independent ISP that uses its proprietary fibre network to deliver ultrafast full fibre broadband to Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset and beyond.

We’re passionate about delivering ultrafast internet with fantastic customer service to thousands of customers whose copper to fibre upgrade was deemed uncommercial by the rest of the telecoms industry.

The network consists of more than 150 wireless masts and over 1,600km of fibre delivering ultrafast fibre and wireless coverage to almost 4,000 customers across Dorset, South-Wiltshire, South-Somerset and parts of Hampshire too.
