FibreWiFi is a Next Generation Wireless Internet Service carried on the Buzcom Radio Network. Both companies are based in Chelmsford, Essex. FibreWiFi delivers Superfast Broadband connections across The East of England without the need for telephone lines and instead uses state of the art radio's to deliver the service to customers.
Early in 2010 Essex County Council launched a competitive tender in order to choose a company to deliver high speed internet throughout Maldon District and after an exhaustive process chose Buzcom's innovative FibreWiFi solution over less comprehensive offerings.
The success of the Maldon scheme did not go unnoticed and Uttlesford District Council introduced a similar scheme in the Autumn of 2011.
The following year Epping Forest Council ran a tender for a company to supply a disaster recovery plan and a district wide Radio Broadband Network. Buzcom's FibreWiFi service was chosen as the best solution.
The company has continued to expand and has an extensive network in Essex and Suffolk. The service has won plaudits from The Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) who have described the Suffolk expansion as "A well-managed project that has delivered against the objectives in the Business Plan and has drawn down grant funds ahead of schedule."
The company is led by Gary Disley, who has thirty years experience in the communications industry working with BBC TV, SKY TV, and ESPN in the UK and overseas.
Since forming Buzcom and FibreWiFi early in 2010 the company has gone from strength to strength, establishing itself as the leading provider of Radio Broadband in the East of England; with local authorities, major public tourist attractions, churches, and the British Army to name just some of the organisations entrusting their Broadband Services to FibreWiFi and the Buzcom Network.
