Wireless internet provider boosts rural connectivity with latest acquisition

Quickline, the East Yorkshire wireless internet provider, has announced the acquisition of network provider JHCS, which trades as Newark Wireless, for an undisclosed sum.

As a result of the deal, Quickline will now take over internet delivery to homes and businesses across rural Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

The company said that buying JHCS was a “logical step in this ongoing mission to deliver fast, reliable and secure broadband to small villages, farms, holiday parks and other sites that are often ignored by larger service providers.”

Steve Jagger, managing director of Quickline, said: “We are thrilled to take on JHCS’s customer base, as we’re confident we can continue to provide them with exceptional broadband as well as many other connectivity solutions. Fast, reliable connectivity isn’t a luxury anymore.

“It’s a necessity. Our whole aim to bring a high-speed service to all areas, no matter how remote the location. It’s what everyone deserves – and thanks to our extensive infrastructure, that’s what we can provide.”

Hayley Silvester, head of sales for Quickline, added: “Our technology is wireless, which gives us the ability to reach many rural areas not commercially viable for traditional telecoms.

“And by using a combination of technologies, we can offer speeds of up to 100Mbps, which is really helping businesses like farms and caravan parks enhance the way they operate on a daily basis.”

John Harris, owner and director of Newark Wireless, also said: “I’d like to thank all the existing Newark Wireless customers for their support and would like to reassure them that they don’t need to worry about anything. Their accounts will seamlessly transfer to Quickline without them even noticing.”
