Quickline Demonstrates Power of Fixed Wireless 5G to North Yorkshire Council

Clint, North Yorkshire – The Quickline team recently teamed up with representatives from North Yorkshire Council-owned broadband provider NYnet to showcase their cutting-edge fixed wireless 5G technology.

This event provided an invaluable opportunity to present an overview of the connection process and to perform various speed tests, highlighting the remarkable connection speeds achievable through the 5G masts situated in North Yorkshire.

Gathering at a newly constructed site in Clint, Mark Seward, Quickline’s Director of Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), and Alasdair MacLeod, Head of Network Improvement, offered an insightful explanation of the deployment process and the associated equipment.

The team then ventured to locations 3 kilometers and 18 kilometers from the mast, demonstrating the seamless connection process and showcasing the available speeds at these distances.

The speed tests conducted underscored the reliability of 5G standalone technology, which is redefining possibilities in rural areas. Impressive speeds of 365Mbps at 3 kilometers and 280Mbps at 18 kilometers were achieved on the day.

Mark Seward expressed his pride in Quickline’s leadership in 5G standalone technology, stating, “Quickline is at the forefront of 5G standalone technology, and we were thrilled to showcase it to NYnet, demonstrating the speed and reliability it offers in rural North Yorkshire.”

He further noted the significance of Quickline’s new higher gain antenna, which receives signals even at ground level, providing impressive connectivity when installed at elevated positions on customer premises. This technology supports Quickline’s efforts to expand successful installations in the rural communities they serve.

Alastair Taylor, CEO at NYnet, highlighted the potential impact of this new technology on North Yorkshire residents and businesses, particularly those without Superfast broadband connectivity. He emphasized that it will play a crucial role in bridging the digital divide between urban and rural areas.
