Upgrade to LTE for H3G across the UK


Client: Arqiva, Winchester, England, UK
Project length: On Going 600 Sites Completed
Project value: £6m
Completion date: On Going
HF divisions involved: Comms

 
Over the last 2 years HF Comms have been working hand in hand with Arqiva to install LTE for Three across Arqiva’s network of sites. HF Comms involvement in this project has been the installation of 800MHz and/or 1800MHZ 4G telecoms equipment on over 600 of these sites across the UK, and we even had the honour of completing the build of the 1,000th site on this project for Arqiva back in 2015.

Project Challenges overcame: Like all telecoms projects we are extremely susceptible to the elements and the two winters during this project have not been kind.

We have experienced flooding in Cumbria, Japanese Knotweed around pylons, pirate radio on towers and enough seagulls on BT rooftops to make Hitchcock cry.

A bit about Arqiva – Arqiva is a leading UK communications infrastructure company. They are an independent provider of telecom towers that own and operate more than than 8,000 active sites through out the UK. Arqiva are the only national provider of terrestrial television and radio broadcasting, and work with clients such as BT-EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three to independent radio groups and major broadcasters, such as the BBC, ITV, Sky, Turner and CANAL+ to utility companies such as Thames Water.

HF Comms are very proud to have been involved with Arqiva and feel privileged to have been involved in the delivery of so many groundbreaking projects over the years.
