Can you imagine a world without internet connection? Neither can we. That’s why Axione designs and deploys telecommunications infrastructure in the UK and abroad, to support current and future digital uses.

History and vision

Founded in 2003 in response to a drive to develop digital services in local areas initiated by the French digital economy act, Axione has based its mission on its ability to design, build and operate infrastructure, with the aim of accelerating and facilitating access to digital technology.

Strong of its experience in the development of digital infrastructure across rural areas of France, Axione is expanding in the UK, bringing its experience in digital transformation of territories to support current and future uses of digital. Internet Service Providers and the government are today structuring the market to plan the deployment of full fibre connectivity to all premises in the UK (representing approximately 30 million premises) with the objective of reaching  quickly a high pace of deployment to achieve full-fibre coverage as early as 2025.

Axione UK is undertaking a commercial investment, to deploy a full-fibre network across small towns and villages, and retaining its purely wholesale model, offering access to its infrastructure and services to Internet Service Providers, operators and channel partners who address all types of end-users (residential users, businesses, public sector organizations, smart city applications and mobile operators).

This investment is supported by our financial partners.

Our model

Axione designs, builds and operates full fibre networks. However, we do not sell directly to end-users. Instead, we have a completely open policy and partner with retail Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who will offer you the service you need.
