Exascale to provide Full Fibre to Charity in Broadband Not Spot

Shrewsbury & Newport Canals Trust

Exascale collaborates with the Shrewsbury & Newport Canals Trust, a charity based in Telford, to provide Gigabit speeds to an underserved broadband area.

Exascale is delighted to be working with the Trust, introducing Gigabit speeds to the Wappenshall Junction redevelopment project. The ambitious initiative aims to revive the Canal basin while also offering community spaces and an on-site café, enhancing the overall area.

Thomas Bibb, CEO of Exascale said: “We’re very excited to be working with the Shrewsbury & Newport Canals trust, providing managed WiFi solutions in addition to Managed Gigabit Full Fibre connectivity to the building – which will be a massive improvement on the current 1Mbps legacy ADSL connection!”.

Bernie Jones, Chairman of the Trust said “This will bring 21st Century technology to our 200 year old wharf, for the benefit of our visitors. I’m sure that Thomas Telford, who was partly responsible for the canals meeting here, would greatly approve!”

Exascale is an independent Internet Service Provider (ISP) which has an expanding Gigabit Full Fibre network serving properties north of Telford & Wrekin, connecting large businesses estates such as Hortonwood through to villages such as Preston upon the Weald Moors and most recently Wappenshall.
