“Openreach’s professional support was invaluable and meeting immovable deadlines for such events is always a challenge. I thank them for their contribution to the success of the events and look forward to future collaborations.”

The 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham posed a big challenge for the telecoms industry. With millions of viewers tuning in from all over the world, it was crucial to have high-bandwidth connectivity in multiple venues like Alexander Stadium and Sandwell Aquatics Centre, as well as remote sites like Sutton Park and Cannock Chase Forest.
That's where Exponential-E came in, securing the telecoms contract to provide business ethernet services. With a tight six-month deadline until the Opening Ceremony, they needed a partner who could deliver reliable and efficient ethernet broadband. So, they turned to us.
We formed an internal steering group, bringing together field teams, planning experts, senior management, and service teams to support Exponential-E in making sure the Commonwealth Games were connected with high-speed ethernet broadband. Our team tackled network build issues, coordinated with stakeholders, and kept everyone in the loop with tailored communication channels.
Thanks to our expertise in business ethernet services and some serious teamwork, we delivered a smooth operation within that tight deadline. And you know what? Our contribution to the project earned recognition from Exponential-E and the Olympic Committee.
With meticulous planning and delivery, our team made sure that the ethernet connection we provided gave viewers an exceptional experience while watching the Commonwealth Games. Our flexible and diligent approach to delivering high-quality ethernet business services ensured that millions of people worldwide could enjoy the Commonwealth Games without any interruptions.
The success of this project highlights our commitment to timely and precise delivery. So, if you're looking for a reliable partner to help with your organisation's communication needs, we've got you covered.
