Business Description

Arqiva is a leading UK communications infrastructure company. It is a provider of telecom towers, with around 8,000 active licensed sites, and the only national provider of terrestrial television and radio broadcasting.

Their technology enables them to work with everyone from mobile network operators, such as BT-EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three to independent radio groups and major broadcasters, such as the BBC, ITV, Sky, Turner and CANAL+ to utility companies such as Thames Water.

Arqiva is investing to ensure that the UK has the communications infrastructure it needs to thrive in an increasingly connected world.
