How can Street Hubs help?
Street Hubs enable change, bridging the digital divide of your communities with high-speed access.
Future-ready infrastructure and modern design removes street clutter and allows real-time information sharing at no cost - entirely run and installed by BT. Environmental sensors make Smart Cities possible on a limited budget, and our street transformation team are dedicated to evolving public connectivity by updating the payphone estate for today's digitally connected converged-media society.
The road to success
Community connectivity - Secure connectivity with breathtaking speeds.
Streamlined streets - Reduced street clutter with improved aesthetics.
Digital street communication - Expanded 4G/5G enablement, without masts.
The green agenda - Powered by 100% renewable carbon-free energy.
The Smart City - Capacity for environmental and traffic monitoring equipment.
Ultrafast Wi-Fi and Small Cell 4G and 5G capabilities bring improved connectivity and digital access to public infrastructure with mobile in-fill and public message broadcasting.
Double aspect 75" screens offer real-time advertising revenue and public information, with remote upload control for instant updates - 5% of screen time (438 hours) is dedicated for council use.
Free phone calls to UK mobile and landline numbers, a 999-emergency call button that automatically shares its location, plus dedicated charity icons connect people to whoever they need to speak to.
Street Hubs are operated in accordance with our anti-social behaviour management plan developed with assistance from the police and a number of local authorities.
Reduced street clutter, potential for environmental air, noise and traffic monitoring, and public service information provide a safer local and wider environment.
Street Hubs are made with durable and efficient materials and are regularly inspected and cleaned.
Street Hubs in action
Throughout the UK, Street Hubs helped councils keep the public safe with public information.
With Public Health England, we doubled screen time for their Stay at Home campaign, regularly updating guidelines into short, digestible snippets on Street Hubs across the UK. We collaborated with local councils to offer support for localised messaging, including working with the London Mayor’s Office to give consistent communication across 14 boroughs.
