Arqiva is a leading UK communications infrastructure company, behind the scenes delivering millions of vital connections.

Every day our infrastructure and associated services enable millions of people, businesses and machines to connect wherever they are through TV, radio and machine-to-machine data services.

We are the only supplier of national terrestrial television and radio broadcasting services in the UK and our advanced networks support the critical passage of data and content from connected TVs, and smart meters for water, gas and electricity.

Our customers include major UK and international broadcasters such as the BBC, ITV, Sky Plc., Turner Broadcasting, the independent radio groups and major utility companies and networks.

We carried the BBC’s first television broadcast in 1936, were behind the first satellite TV tests in the 1970s, launched the UK’s national DAB radio and digital terrestrial television networks in the 2000s and are a key part of the national roll out of smart gas and electricity meters in the North and Scotland. Our expertise in managed networks has also seen us develop a growing presence in the water industry, helping utilities companies meet their leakage reduction targets.

At Arqiva, we are investing to ensure that the UK has the communications infrastructure it needs to thrive in an increasingly connected world. From carrying the BBC’s first television broadcast in 1936 to launching the UK’s national DAB radio and digital terrestrial television networks in the 2000s, we strive to continuously find ingenious and smarter ways to support our customers.
