First Gold Standard Quality Mark for Wireless Awarded to Secure Web Services

INCA Gold Standard Wireless branding

Secure Web Services Ltd (SWS) has become the first wireless services provider to achieve our Gold Standard Quality Mark which recognises network excellence. As a fixed wireless access (FWA) network provider, SWS met the stringent criteria of the scheme and can now use the Gold Standard Quality Mark Scheme logo as part of its branding to highlight that its network is among the best in regard to performance, design and operation. 

“We’re delighted to receive this acknowledgement for the quality of our advanced wireless network,” said Chris New, Managing Director at SWS. “We are proud that our network has the capability to support such a wide range of services, such as video conferencing and streaming. What’s more is that we have been able to achieve this in some of the UK’s most rural and sparsely populated locations, beyond the viable reach of alternative broadband providers. Attaining this award gives our customers additional peace of mind in this ever-growing market of alternative suppliers.”

SWS will now continue to increase its network coverage and customer base using sustainable self-investment in its infrastructure. Its accreditation adds SWS to the ever-growing roster of Gold Standard networks spearheaded by the pioneers TrueSpeed, WightFibre and Hyperoptic.

Created to highlight the best practices in performance, design and operations across full fibre, hybrid fibre, wireless and wholesale networks, INCA’s Gold Standard Quality Mark is an independent scheme with demanding criteria covering technology, performance and customer service plus compliance with the BDUK and EU definitions of Next Generation Access (NGA).

“We congratulate SWS on its Gold Standard Quality Mark which is the first to be awarded in the wireless category of the scheme,” said Malcolm Corbett, CEO at INCA. “SWS has proved its commitment to delivering the highest quality wireless network to its customers and its efforts have made a significant contribution in connecting previously underserved parts of the UK.”
