Fibre to the premises (FTTX)
Creating a Digital Britain
Broadband has the power to inject life into every inch of the economy – boosting productivity across industries, creating jobs and enriching the lives of everyone in the UK.
Watch Geo’s Chris Smedley interview with Brian Dolby of NextGen, discussing how open access infrastructure is poised to support a digital Britain:
The economic downturn is intensifying the competition for inward investment in the UK, with regions being judged against a range of existing and emerging criteria in a global beauty pageant to create local jobs. Super fast broadband and the credibility of Next Generation Access (NGA) strategies will grow in importance to become a significant factor in business decisions. A combination of public and private investment will be needed to position individual regions positively within the UK and on a world stage.
The successful formulation of projects such as FibreSpeed and MDDA gives Geo a unique understanding of the challenges and opportunities that exist in making your next generation vision a reality. Our disruptive ‘open access’ business model puts the full power of optical fibre in the customer’s hands. It’s a new kind of public-private partnership that delivers large, complex infrastructures in a way that provides a real return on investment.
Welcome to our world
We have already deployed some of the UK’s most advanced optical fibre networks. Now we’re helping regional development authorities plan and roll out major projects across the UK.
Geo creates a dedicated project capability set up to meet your specific requirements. From network strategy and design, build, launch, day-to-day operations and commercialisation – we take the strain off your organisation and provide a single point of accountability for delivering the business objectives and managing the data network supply chain.
Geo uses a tried and tested agile resourcing model to bring the right skills and experience together to meet the changing demands of the project across the lifetime of the contract. There’s no substitute for firsthand experience and we understand the challenges of attracting EU/UK investment and delivering a customised next generation solution that is state-aid compliant.
Outsourcing your digital infrastructure project to us means first-class implementation without having to expand your own organisation. We have the experience to anticipate issues and the flexibility to adapt to project changes, ensuring that delivery stays on time and on budget.
Our own people achieved operational certification to the ISO9001:2000 Quality Standard and we work only with best-in-class services and technology suppliers.
Geo understands what is required to launch a successful next generation network (NGN) business including the branding, marketing, pricing and channel strategy needed to deliver new business growth and ROI.
What our clients say
Geo delivered the complete network, but it was their approach to commercialisation that really cemented the deal. The FibreSpeed model encourages new business and generates competition to deliver tangible economic benefits to Wales.
