In a world where connectivity is essential to our daily lives, BAI Communications designs, builds and operates communications infrastructure – cellular, Wi-Fi, broadcast, radio and IP networks – connecting communities around the world.
With our state-of-the-art robust communications systems, governments and businesses can unlock new revenue streams and fast-track the commuter economy.
In New York and Toronto, we enable more than 7 million* daily subway commuters to shop, share, stream, earn and learn through our cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
In Hong Kong, commuters on the MTR collaborate, create and stay connected thanks to our trusted expertise in designing and delivering high-quality networks in confined and complex transport systems.
In Australia, we own and operate one of the most extensive transmission networks in the world, delivering 59 million broadcasting hours to 99% of the population. In times of crisis, national broadcasters rely on us to maintain the connection with Australians – flood, fire, cyclone or other natural disaster – and emergency services rely on us to help keep them informed.
In the UK, with our global network of experts paired with local in-depth knowledge, we are working with industry leaders to explore the role of technology in the transport system of the future.
BAI is in the position to create richer commuter experiences and smarter cities.
