Commenting on the accolade, Rod Angood, director of Bath University computing services said: “We are delighted to receive this commendation. When we decided to design a new network infrastructure we were keen that the build would cause minimal disruption to the local area. H2O Networks has built us a future-proofed network infrastructure by laying its dark fibre in the city’s sewers. Not only do we now have a robust, scalable network infrastructure capable of delivering super-fast connectivity speeds, we were able to achieve this using a more environmentally friendly method of deployment.”

Our deployment techniques use the sewers to offer a cost effective, faster alternative to the traditional methods of cabling. This avoids digging up roads and bringing traffic chaos to the local area which was very important to the team at the University.
