New training and innovation centre launched

We’ve opened a new training centre, stores and test laboratory to support our work in developing innovative technologies.

The launch of the facility represents the latest stage of our continued expansion as we roll out our game-changing broadband across rural Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The custom-built premises provide us with a modern space to train our engineers and develop the skills of our teams.

Our engineers will use the centre as their main base to collect equipment for installations and it will be used by our own Internal Build Team. Within the test laboratory is a dedicated space for the development of new
products and services using our 5G technology. We are the first provider in the UK to commercially deliver a pure, standalone 5G fixed wireless network, demonstrating we are an industry leader in technology and innovation.

The opening of the building marks the latest stage of ongoing growth for the business with 150 new staff recruited in the last 12 months. Our CEO Sean Royce said: “The opening of our new facility represents another major investment in the local economy by us.

“It will provide an essential, dedicated space to train our people to the highest standard, so they can deliver the outstanding service our customers deserve. “The test laboratory will also enable our experts to develop new and innovative
services with our existing 5G and fibre technologies, as we continue to deliver on our mission to ensure rural communities in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire aren’t left behind.”
