In 2018, a MIRA-managed fund acquired INEA. Since then, MIRA has worked in partnership with INEA’s management team to support its growth ambitions – seeking to expand its 7,000-kilometre backbone fibre network and high-quality last mile fibre network passing 650,000 homes and businesses.
During MIRA’s stewardship, INEA has won more than half of the tenders issued by the Polish government to enhance rural connectivity. INEA plans to double the size of its network in the coming years, connecting a further 615,000 premises to fibre network infrastructure. This initiative aims to bridge the digital divide by bringing the world’s fastest internet speeds to households and businesses in rural areas of Western Poland.
Importantly, this network expansion will see approximately 2,000 schools connected to INEA’s network – enabling teachers and students to better utilise digital learning resources and advance educational outcomes.
