Broadway Partners Ltd (Broadway Partners) is a telecommunications company committed to delivering high quality broadband to areas of the UK that have the least access to broadband infrastructure. By working with world-class industrial partners such as Microsoft and Nominet, as well as with central and local government, and by using leading edge technologies, the benefits of efficient state-of the-art communications infrastructure are delivered to the widest possible constituency. Broadway Partners’ primary focus is on introducing TV WhiteSpace (TVWS), a new technology that uses the radio spectrum made available by the earlier switchover from analogue to digital TV transmission. Operating in the sub 700MHz frequency band, TVWS is uniquely suited to rural areas, able to transmit over long distances, around hills and through trees, and is a perfect complement to conventional line-of-sight-dependent 5GHz radio. Broadway Partners is leading the commercialisation of TVWS in the UK, as part of Microsoft’s worldwide Affordable Access Initiative, which is committed to connecting the 4 billion digitally unconnected.
