As an independent owner, operator and investor in wireless connectivity solutions, we are specialists in leasing space on masts and designing in-building systems and bespoke private networks.
Founded in 2007, Shared Access has been investing in connectivity for over 15 years. As proactive problem solvers we actively encourage a culture of accountability and responsibility. We are proud to partner with our customers for the lifetime of our systems.
Our customers all have unique needs. From mobile network operators requiring hundreds of masts to high profile sporting stadiums, municipal buildings, hotels and office complexes – we provide the optimum physical and financial solution for them all.
After a competitive tender process, we were appointed by the National Gallery (one of the greatest art galleries in the world) to design, deploy, operate and maintain a multi-operator mobile connectivity service within its new office hub at the heart of the famous Grade I listed building in London.Continue Reading
Shared Access and Tottenham Hotspur embarked on an audacious mission in 2017 – to bring world class connectivity to Tottenham’s new stadium.
Building upon Shared Access’ previous experience deploying connectivity in large venues, the new system was designed, installed and fully funded by Shared Access. The stadium opened in April 2019 with all four UK mobile network operators live for the first game – a first in the UK.Continue Reading
Tunnels are historically tough locations to get a phone signal. Traditional masts provide coverage outdoors to locations that can be seen – tunnels by their nature are underground, compact and often have lots of twists and turns that all stop existing outdoor signals from penetrating inside.
The Tyne Tunnel is no different. Originally opened in 1967, the seven miles of tunnels connect the town of Jarrow with North Shields and Howden. The traffic that passes through the tunnel allows vehicles both a way in and out of Newcastle. Over 40,000 vehicles travel through the Tyne Tunnel every day – that’s over 14,000,000 vehicles a year.Continue Reading
In August 2022 we completed our largest build to-date. The 45m state of the art tower and secure compound at Heathrow provides coverage for the National Air Traffic Services business, all UK mobile operators (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone) and Transport for London. It also has the capacity to take future tenants, allowing for additional connectivity in the Heathrow and Feltham area.Continue Reading
During the busy season, Berthon Marina has up to 250 boats in residence, all with multiple devices connecting to the marina’s Wi-Fi. This was creating a heavily congested network environment and a poor end user experience. Connection speeds were grinding to a halt, with berth holders and visitors frequently being disconnected or simply unable to connect. Card payments for fuel or food and beverage became impossible to process with all the associated customer frustrations and commercial impact.Continue Reading
