Hill Case Study

Posted on: February 14, 2023 at 12:23 pm


Hill Group are an award winning 5 star housebuilder, creating beautiful new homes across
London & the South East.


The Challenge

The Hill Group requires internet connectivity from the get-go on their building sites – before any
infrastructure is in place. They have teams on the ground that are working to tight schedules & need to
be reliably connected to VPN and email services. Having been let down by national telecommunication
companies who could not deliver on their promises, the company went out to market to identify an
organisation that could deliver a solution that meets their needs.

Our Solution

Having been approached by The Hill Group, the Cloudcell Technologies team took the time to listen to
their needs. With time of the essence, we identified a robust solution that utilised both 4G and 5G
connectivity to get their construction sites connected as quickly as possible.

Initially, The Hill Group started with a single connection solution. But, as usage on their sites has grown,
additional bandwidth has been required. This additional bandwidth is supplied by our ‘Storm’ product;
which was originally a dual 4G-only solution.

However, with the introduction of our ‘Storm 5G’ solution, The Hill Group can now benefit from 5G if it is
available at the site. This upgrade required no material change to what The Hill Group ordered; they now
just benefit from the best possible connectivity available at any location. As the availability of 5G has
become more widespread across the South of England, we have deployed increased numbers of ‘Storm
5Gs’ to The Hill Groups’ sites, which deliver superior performance, leading to improved site productivity.


The Hill Group are delighted with connectivity solutions we have implemented rapidly across their sites in the South of England.

Zak Jabbar, ICT Senior Technical Analyst The Hill Group has stated:

“We got was instant connectivity on our sites and the onsite teams were extremely happy. What is more, the recent 5G installations have really boosted speeds and productivity for the end user, to the extent that we no longer need to have a fixed line installed at these sites.”
