At Comms365, we’ve been working with construction companies for over five years.
Whether you’re looking for a simple on-site internet connection or cutting-edge Internet of Things technology,
we have solutions to suit sites of all sizes in any location.
Here we list our products and services which are commonly used in the construction sector,
along with some case studies and other relevant resources.

Often, construction sites don’t have existing fixed line infrastructure, with installation taking weeks or months causing problems for workers and delays to projects. A 4G fixed IP SIM and router solution can provide an internet connection from day one for 2-10 site workers. We have a range of tariffs and contract lengths, as well as rental options. We can also pre-configure your router and SIM, so all you need to do is plug it in and connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable.
Our Continuum solution was designed with larger construction sites in mind. Combining multiple 4G connections (and / or other connection types), Continuum provides increased internet performance capable of supporting from 10 to 50 or more site workers. Bonding connections from multiple network providers provides resilience should one provider experience an outage. Our Continuum unit is available in two sizes, with configurations of 3 – 12 bonded connections. We offer a range of aggregated data packages, purchase and rental options.

You’ve probably heard about the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it is anticipated to improve efficiency and safety in the construction sector.
Our IoT Construction solution monitors a range of measures including energy use, stock levels, asset location and environmental conditions. Data is relayed to an intuitive dashboard to assist in the management and operations of construction sites. You can read more about our construction IoT solution here.

The European construction industry is gradually opening back up after months of lockdown following the recent pandemic. As firms face increasing pressure to get back on track and deliver against rising demand, it’s widely recognised that the construction industry has long suffered a reputation for regularly delivering projects later than expected, and often over-budget. Even though the sector is rebounding post-Covid, the industry remains cautious with furloughed staff, redundancies and supply chain disruptions, meaning that firms will need to do a lot more with fewer resources for the foreseeable future.
Innovations in digital technology are fostering change and unlocking significant potential improvments in operational processes for the construction industry across the globe. At every level, from the conceptual design all the way through to the physical construction and continued upkeep of the building, new digital devices, applications and methodologies are starting to prove their worth. Yet, IT investment within the construction industry has typically lagged far behind other industries, with less than one per cent of revenues being spent on IT compared to more than four per cent being invested by the automotive sector.
Connectivity is a necessity for businesses in virtually every industry and construction is no exception. Crucially, this is still one fundamental hurdle that the industry must overcome if it is to create a solid foundation for all new innovation. Technology that is crucial for the industry to innovate and keep up with demand, cannot function without high speed, portable and reliable internet connection, but gaining access to connectivity can be a challenge for new sites, particularly those that are located in a Green or Brownfield location where there is typically no existing connection. Often, a fixed line is simply not an option and the reliability of 4G is still patchy, even as talk around the possibilities of 5G continue to dominate the headlines.
