CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Domicilium, the Isle of Man's leading ISP, has deployed Cambridge Broadband’s VectaStar fixed wireless access solution. This network is believed to be the first commercial 3.5GHz fixed wireless network in the UK, and Domicilium is the sole 3.5GHz licence holder in the Isle of Man.

Domicilium's network is now live and the company is already serving its first customers. Domicilium is offering a variety of high-speed Internet services to banks, trading houses, multi-tenant buildings and schools throughout the island. The company plans to use Cambridge Broadband's VectaStar equipment to provide complete geographical coverage of the 572 square kilometre island.

Jon Allen, Managing Director at Domicilium, comments: “As the only alternative to the incumbent Monopoly telecom operator, we have a responsibility to provide competitively priced high quality broadband services to our customers. We selected the VectaStar equipment because of its superior throughput, range, and the variety of interfaces it supports. It will enable us to meet the needs of our customers both now and into the future.”

Peter Wharton, CEO of Cambridge Broadband, adds: “As the UK's only 3.5GHz fixed wireless equipment vendor, we are very pleased to be working with Domicilium to establish the country's first such network. We hope that the success of this deployment will stimulate the deployments of the operators who have recently been awarded 3.5GHz licences in the mainland UK.”
