Vodafone shared its 4G spectrum with Freshwave to help offer high-speed broadband in areas without 4G connectivity, as well as to promote efficient use of its spectrum.
We developed an award-winning approach to help guests and owners at some of Verdant Leisure’s Scottish holiday parks enjoy improved wireless connectivity on a 4G mobile private network. Trees and Wi-Fi aren’t a good combination, so when Online Systems, our partner, gave us the task of solving this connectivity challenge, we were only too happy to put our engineering excellence to work.
Our approach provides the ease of Wi-Fi access but without the capacity constraints. And with 4G needing less infrastructure to install thanks to its range, there’s less disruption for park users and less chance of encountering unmarked underground lines, such as water or gas.
7 parks across both Verdant Leisure and other holiday park operators already connected with our mobile private network
Over 10,000 owners and guests able to enjoy connectivity
We’ve won two industry awards for our approach
Outdoor small cell technology brings broadband data speeds to each lodge in the park via a network of small cells and a mini antenna on each lodge. A SIM-based router inside then distributes the signal via Wi-Fi.
Not only do guests and owners enjoy robust and reliable connectivity, but operational services, such as sales, maintenance and housekeeping, are also able to use the network.

Mobile Private Network (MPN)
Mobile private networks (MPNs) bring your factory, port, trading floor or hospital the security, licenced frequencies and superior capacity of public networks. But they’re dedicated just to you.
Outdoor small cells
Outdoor small cells enhance mobile coverage in busy urban areas where the number of people and things using the signal may put too much demand on the nearest mast. The cells can often be added to existing street assets like lamp posts.
