Boldyn Networks and G.Network announce new partnership to build a smarter, better connected London

13 March 2024 | London, England

Boldyn Networks, a global leader in shared communications infrastructure, and G.Network, London’s full-fibre provider, have today announced a new strategic partnership to fast-track the capital’s ambitions to become a leading global smart city.

United by a shared vision for a better connected London, the partnership will help supercharge the ‘Smarter London Together’ roadmap developed by the Mayor of London and his Chief Digital Officer (CDO), Theo Blackwell, by enhancing connectivity, optimising city services, and fostering sustainable development across the capital.

Combining Boldyn’s expertise in smart infrastructure development with G.Network's fast and affordable full-fibre broadband, the two companies will develop and deploy innovative solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of Londoners, businesses, and communities.

Projects will include working together to enhance internet connectivity in congested mobile areas across London by delivering 4G/5G small cell provision. A capability that also provides a foundation for future smart cities use cases.

The partnership will also see G.Network support Boldyn Networks, Greater London Authority (GLA) and Transport for London’s (TfL) project to roll out improved fibre connectivity to London’s boroughs.

Theo Blackwell, Chief Digital Officer at the Greater London Authority, said: “This strategic partnership between Boldyn Networks and G.Network is a significant step in realising our vision for a Smarter London Together. By combining Boldyn's expertise in smart/shared network infrastructure with G.Network's gigafast broadband, we aim to create a city that leverages technology to enhance connectivity, services, and sustainability for all Londoners.”

Billy D’Arcy, CEO of Boldyn Networks UK and Ireland has said: "We are delighted to be working with G.Network in our shared commitment to deliver London's smart city ambitions, as we build a new fibre network across London in partnership with Transport for London. By harnessing the power of cutting-edge technology and robust infrastructure, we aim to unlock new opportunities for innovation, efficiency, and inclusivity, ultimately improving the quality of life for all Londoners."

G.Network, CEO Kevin Murphy added: "Our exciting partnership with Boldyn Networks marks a significant moment in London's digital transformation and an important step for G.Network. Together, we will demonstrate how smart infrastructure expertise, coupled with our gigafast network can turn the mayor’s vision for a better-connected London into a reality.”
