In 1982, inspired by his search for a communications solution for another business venture Terence Boyle formed Palace Communications Limited. Originally created to provide communications solutions in the form of private mobile radio (PMR) to a London demanding mobile communications. At the start Palace offered 'Community Repeater' service to London and the south east of England. Situated in Crystal Palace our premises allowed us to offer a single site community repeater service that covered almost the whole of Greater London. Then with the introduction of Trunked radio systems. We started to offer selective calling system from the mid-late 1980s, this moved on to become national band III the longest and most successful national radio network.
Then at the end of 1993, Mercury One2One was launched starting the first truly domestic mobile phone service. Seeing an opening for Palace Communications in this new revolution he quickly opened one of South London's first independent phone shops. Through the early 90s this side of the business boomed, in 1996 joined by his wife and son the company became a true family business. However after the introduction of pay as you go mobile phones and of course once supermarkets joined the phone retail sector, in the middle of 2000 Palace Communications closed its shop doors and refocused on its core business 'PMR'. Continuing to work with many clients, from mainstream corporate companies like Royal Bank of Scotland and London Borough of Tower Hamlets to Kings College London and Hawk Security Solutions. Offering tailored communications solutions including Handportable radios for security or maintenance to access control systems for gated entry areas.
With the introduction GPS based vehicle and asset tracking Palace Communications became an authorised dealer for Foretrack, one of the UK's leading tracking system providers. We continued to build on the product range offered to our customers, with the introduction of digital radio and IP controlled radio systems.
