Rural Full Fibre ISP County Broadband Grows Work Force to 79

UK ISP County Broadband, which is being fuelled by £46m from Aviva to help it deploy a new “gigabit-capable” Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across the rural East of England region, has seen its local workforce soar from 16 to 60 since the start of 2019 and they expect to hit 79 before the year is out.

The provider recently began their demand-led (i.e. requires interest from 30% of premises in each community) rollout around rural Essex (here), as well as the Diss and Thetford areas of South West Norfolk, although they also expect to reach into parts of Cambridgeshire.

At present around 50 villages are in their initial build plan until Q2 2020 (reaching c.15,000 total homes passed) and the latest aim is to cover a total of 40,000 premises by the end of 2020. Most of their initial villages are in the Colchester, Chelmsford and Braintree areas.
