Imagine Group is a strategic investor and has operated wireless broadband and fixed networks since 2002. They hold a significant 3.5GHz spectrum position in the Irish marketplace and are currently migrating its TD LTE-A network (which is optimised as a purely fixed access network to deliver broadband connectivity across rural Ireland) to 5G. Imagine’s WTTx strategy of using TD LTE-A to connect high performance CPE to fiber backhaul is proving to be faster to deploy with significantly lower cost compared to fiber access solutions in these rural areas. WTTx is emerging as a key strategic alternative to FTTx accelerating the delivery of 100% high speed broadband availability.
