THE BACKGROUND

With a rapidly growing network that currently serves c. 20k homes and businesses, Airband is emerging as a leader in deep rural connectivity.

With the benefit of subsidies awarded under BDUK’s Superfast Rural Broadband programme, the Company is bringing the next generation of connectivity to rural homes and businesses that are otherwise unable to access quality and reliable broadband.  NDIF’s investment will enable Airband to deliver faster internet access to an additional 50k homes.
