Slough might not be a city you are familiar with unless you’ve watched mockumentary sitcom, The Office but a recent telecommunications startup is aiming to change all of that by putting Slough on the map as the world's first ultra-intelligent Smart city.
Angie Networks Limited signed an agreement with Slough Borough Council earlier this year to bring fibre-fed Gigabit wireless to residents and businesses throughout the city for just £30 per month whilst also offering a host of other benefits including real time city public transport information, remote health monitoring, assisted living and more.
The company also has its sights set on other cities across the UK and is currently in talks with other councils.
With this deal Colt and Zayo, two of the largest fibre operators will also be working in partnership with Angie to develop additional fibre infrastructure deep within all Slough’s neighbourhoods whilst also utilising existing infrastructure.
“We will bring fibre to locations in Slough where it would have been uneconomical or expensive for the council; it is part of our commitment to the people of Slough. This way, everybody wins: residents, businesses, Slough Borough council, and Angie and its partners,” said Neal Lachman, Group CEO of Angie Communications International, “With the likes of Zayo and Colt and several others already or coming on board as partners, we plan to emulate the Slough models, principles and modus operandi worldwide.”
