GigaPlus Argyll was established as a Community Benefit Society to bring a high quality broadband service to parts of the Isle of Mull, the islands of Iona, Lismore, Luing, and Colonsay, parts of Islay and Jura, and the Craignish peninsula, none of which areas were destined to be reached by the roll-out of BT's fibre optic programme.
With a major capital funding grant from Community Broadband Scotland, GigaPlus Argyll entered a contract in June 2015 with AB Internet for the design and construction of a wireless network which will provide access to Next Generation/Superfast Broadband for almost all houses and business premises throughout the postcode areas allocated by HIE. This contract also requires AB Internet to act as an Internet Service Provider for the initial seven years of network operation.
The initial network comprises some 40 transmitter masts, strategically located around the islands and nearby mainland, to provide optimal line-of-sight coverage to as many properties as possible. The network is connected to the national fibre optic system at Oban.
It is a condition of the public funding provided for the creation of the network that other Internet Service Providers are able to access the wireless infrastructure to offer their services to the areas covered by our network.
