As the UK’s leading provider of communications infrastructure and media services, we pride ourselves at being at the forefront of the latest industry developments and evolution.
From supplying the means to broadcast the UK Government’s budget announcement in 1928, to servicing the infrastructure of much of the UK’s contemporary television, radio, satellite and wireless communications, we are constantly adapting our business model and systems to best suit the needs of our customers.
We also aim to provide industry leading insight into the current state of the world of media and broadcasting, as well as any new or upcoming developments in the field, through the lens of our own unique, expert opinions and commentary.
We have remained at the forefront of communications infrastructure and media services for 90 years because we maintain a tight focus on not only the changes in the operation of broadcast technology, but the needs and desires of businesses and consumers.
With the TV enjoyment of 65 million people at stake, it’s crucial that any major work we carry out on our DTT infrastructure goes smoothly.
The BBC and Arqiva recently undertook a two-year project aimed at reducing power consumption for some AM transmitters in the UK radio network. Please read below more details on the outcomes and a link to the whitepaper produced following the research.
It’s easy to take our domestic water supply for granted - very few people in the UK have had to think twice about its availability. But, as we reflect on a record-breaking summer, water companies are under mounting pressure to do more with less and keep supplies flowing.
We’re working hard to make space on the 700MHz band so that mobile operators and their customers can get the most from both 4G and 5G in the future.
Adore or detest the premise, there’s no denying that the 2018 series of Love Island was a huge success for ITV. Millions followed the drama from day one until July’s finale, which became ITV2’s most-watched programme ever.

Driven by the phenomenal growth of technology over the past decade, today’s viewers not only expect a wide-range of high-quality programming, but the freedom to view their favourite shows whenever, wherever and on whatever device they want.
As the broadcast industry and others close to it evolve, so too must Arqiva’s supporting infrastructure. Our vast and complex network of TV and radio masts and multiplexes is carefully configured to meet the needs of the masses, but we must be ready for change when necessary.
Behind Arqiva’s crucial infrastructure, there are hundreds of skilled engineers, each doing their daily bit to keep the UK’s TV, radio, telecoms and smart technology services up and running. In this article we take a look at the role of our apprenticeship scheme in developing our future talent.
In densely populated UK cities, millions of consumers and businesses are unknowingly battling to get online using the same limited spectrum. And, while most are satisfied at present, mobile services will soon decline if we don’t address the growing strain on networks with the growing appetite for data-heavy services.
A major re-engineering programme is now well underway with the objective of clearing the 700MHz frequency band (UHF channels 49-60) of Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) services by May 2020, to make spectrum available for future mobile data services.
Content distribution over the internet has come of age – with broadcasters and media providers enthusiastically embracing the channel as a true alternative to dedicated fibre, MPLS and satellite transmission. Questions, however, remain.
