Wifinity acquires PCCW Global Networks (UK) Ltd
Wifinity is very excited to announce the acquisition of PCCW Global Networks (UK) Ltd, more commonly known as Media Force and Optify.
The acquisition grows Wifinity’s network footprint where our service is available by an additional 85,000 bedrooms across Military accommodation, student accommodation as well as key worker housing.
Why does this acquisition make sense?
Wifinity recently launched our Student accommodation proposition for universities and private build student accommodation (PBSA). The acquisition gives our growing student business a kick start with a base of circa 35,000 student bedrooms across major universities and PBSA operators.
The acquisition strategically grows Wifinity’s network presence within the MOD thanks to the Mediaforce Brand. It also means that both Wifinity and Mediaforce customers will benefit from a larger network and better connectivity throughout the defence estate. Over the coming months, we will be working out a plan to roll out gigabit broadband to more military sites.
Over the years, Wifinity has had a lot of admiration for the Mediaforce & Optify team, you guys have kept us on our toes! Bringing two brilliant teams together can only be a good thing. Together the team will be able to build exciting new products and offer market-leading services to our customers.
What does this mean for existing customers?
For the time being, it is business as usual and you should expect to receive the same great service. Over the coming months, we will be working hard to bring the best of Wifinity to Optify & Mediaforce customers and vice versa to Wifinity customers. Stay tuned for exciting updates.
