Prioritising efficient and modern connectivity
In September 2023, Voneus Holdings Limited (the rural broadband and fibre businesses of Macquarie Capital and the Israel Infrastructure Fund), merged with SWS and Cadence Networks (the rural broadband and fibre businesses of Rural Broadband Solutions Holdings Limited) and acquired Broadway Partners (another rural broadband business) at the same time. All these assets are now owned and operated through Voneus Limited. Rural Broadband Solutions Holdings Limited (RBSHL) Limited owns a significant stake in Voneus Limited and Global Connectivity still retains its 15% stake in RBSHL.
Through its investment in RBSHL, Global Connectivity PLC is prioritising high speed connectivity within rural communities through the implementation of hybrid infrastructure that will bridge the gap between deep rural areas and urban locations. With the continual advancements in wireless technologies, its hybrid solutions will deliver ultrafast, gigabit capable and 5G ready connectivity into deep rural communities in a scalable and efficient manner. Global Connectivity PLC is prioritising rural connectivity whilst creating a blueprint for deep rural communities across the UK.
It is also looking to invest in other opportunities where technology can assist communication in a commercial way.
