Empowering connections with the best open-access networks in the world

It’s time for a total rethink

X3T was established by Granahan McCourt Capital, a global leader in technology, media and telecommunications, committed to delivering world-leading infrastructure to dramatically expand opportunities and rethink the modern world.

"For over 30 years, Granahan McCourt has introduced a series of industry firsts to help revolutionise the telecoms sector, leading to its role building the first iterations of open-access networks all the way through to today, designing, building and operating one of the largest open access networks in Europe."

Seizing the opportunities that wholesale networks provide, throughout GMC’s journey, one challenge has stayed the same: finding technology solutions in the market that are designed with inherent knowledge of operating high performance open-access networks.

With the only options proving to be cost prohibitive or simply lacking functionality, technology has failed to meet the industry’s desire to enable open-access platforms and unlock this attractive business model.

X3T was established by Granahan McCourt Capital, a global leader in technology, media and telecommunications, committed to delivering world-leading infrastructure to dramatically expand opportunities and rethink the modern world.

  • Over 60 global and specialist Internet Service Providers accredited and connected to the X3T platform
  • Unparalleled speed, cost and efficiency of integration
  • Unlock scalability and drive penetration

This platform, X3T, is now being made available as software-as-a-service to unlock opportunities across the telecoms industry, helping infrastructure investors, network operators and Internet Service Providers to capitalise on the prosperous trend towards open access wholesale.

The move to open-access wholesale is underway, but who will capitalise in this disaggregated market?

Large Incumbents

  • Face growing competition which threatens dominant market share
  • Cumbersome technology infrastructure means change is slow and costly

Established Altnets

  • Original busines model as a retail operator has struggled to achieve take-up
  • Grown through M&A which has compounded legacy technology problems
  • See the attraction of open-access wholesale model, but require fundamental changes to capitalise

Startup Altnets

  • Well-financed to achieve milestones in network construction
  • Lack market penetration and ability to drive take-up
  • Actively evaluating technology infrastructure to make move to wholesale open access
  • Must prove to investors that business model will utilise network

Seize the opportunity of open-access wholesale

In this disaggregated market, competition is rife with new and existing Altnets landing significant investment to fuel network expansion.

Taking a well-trodden path, networks have typically been established to operate as a retail – direct to the consumer – business model.

Experiencing the myriad challenges of driving take-up and utilising the network asset, the model is in need of a total rethink, resulting in more and more infrastructure providers seeking to make the move to an open-access wholesale model.

With X3T, networks owners and Internet Service Providers can infinitely scale their reach and empower connections.
