NextGenAccess (‘NGA’) is a developer of ultrafast wholesale and custom fibre broadband infrastructure in England and Wales.
NGA is a carrier neutral, fibre infrastructure managed service provider that specialises in custom, scalable core and access dark fire network connectivity solutions. NGA have successfully built an independent network across the UK, with over 100 Points of Presence in ten different local authority areas. NDIF is the largest shareholder in NGA and provides capital facilities to support its growth. NDIF’s funding has helped finance expansion of this network, which currently extends over 260km.
NGA is licenced under Duct and Pole Access (DPA) / Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA), which means they can utilise existing Openreach infrastructure to run their own fibre, enabling highly competitive network construction costs and fast deployment times. NGA has secured several significant sales and partnerships recently, including with NGD Europe, a hyperscale data centre operator in Newport, to create a new 80km fibre link across the Severn Bridge to Bristol, bringing enhanced connectivity to thousands of businesses along the route.
