Connectivity is one of the most important assets for any business; including construction sites. Having wireless internet and broadband on your construction site can help streamline workflow and reduce the costs—but using a fixed line is often not a good option.

What is construction site broadband?

Our solution uses an industry-grade 4G router to provide your construction site with a WiFi connection. Instead of provisioning a fixed broadband line, you can simply plug the router into a socket on the wall and connect all your devices to it.

Rather than acquiring a fixed line broadband connection—which often take up to 10 days to install and can have a contract length of 24 months—we will issue you with a short term contract, so that when your site is finished, so is your contract.

Construction site broadband hardware

Many people think that the hardware required to set up broadband on a construction site is complicated and expensive. But this is not the case.

If the 4G signal in your area is poor, or you’re worried about the connection, we can also supply a 4G antenna that plus directly into the back of your router. This antenna brings the outside signal inside and gives you a stronger, more robust connection. This is ideal for more rural construction sites or those using a portable metal cabin.

  3. Plug your 4G router into a power outlet using the adaptor provided.
