June Update From the CEO
In the last month we have continued to connect new customers onto our full fibre networks, as well as continue our programme of upgrades and maintenance to improve service delivery. These projects deliver on the government’s vision for a full fibre future, and we fully support this initiative to equip the UK with connectivity that is reliable and has bandwidth designed to scale with demand.
We have started to see a lot of interest in the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme across our networks which is helping SMEs to subsidise the cost of installation and access to our superfast connectivity. We are also authorised suppliers of BDUK funding in Cheshire, Access Broadband Cymru and the Ultrafast Connectivity Voucher Scheme in Wales.
I am delighted to welcome Dave Hudson to ITS. Dave is a highly experienced telecom and connectivity professional. He has joined us from Zen Internet where he was MD of Wholesale.
Also in the issue read how our internet and VoIP hosted telephony services are important to a medical samples transport company on our Skylon network, and we have also updated our privacy notice as part of our preparations for being GDPR compliant.
