The UK digital infrastructure market has an exciting new player with the launch of the Freshwave Group. Acquired by Digital Colony between August 2018 and June 2019, the Freshwave Group comprises us, iWireless Solutions and Spyder Facilities. The Group unites their expertise and customer portfolios with significant capital.
With 5000+ mast site locations, 2000+ connected buildings and 200+ outdoor networks supported, they already serve a significant portfolio of customers.
The Group is headed up by CEO Simon Frumkin who has worked in leadership positions at UK mobile operators including EE, Orange and T-Mobile for over 20 years.

Underlining its aim of boosting UK digital connectivity where people live, work and play, the Freshwave Group commissioned research by technology specialists CCS Insight.
