Telent Infrastructure Services (TIS) has been successful in winning a further 106 Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) build locations amounting to almost 950,000 premises which will receive ultra-fast broadband as part of the latest wave of Openreach tenders. This builds on the 53, Falcon 1a exchanges, locations awarded in August 2020.
Our teams have worked tirelessly on the tender process and this award is great testament to the professionalism of the whole TIS team and a clear sign of the confidence that Openreach has in our ability to deliver.
In May 2021 Openreach announced a further expansion of their gigabit-capable FTTP network rollout target from 20 million UK premises to 25 million by December 2026.
This latest award, together with the recent Rural Build, and Retro New-Sites awards, retains Telent’s position as the largest FTTP delivery partner to Openreach which seeks to ramp up to deliver a peak build of 4m premises per year.
Work on the latest award will commence in April 2022 and will benefit a further 1 million homes and businesses, upgrading broadband connectivity across the country to level up the UK and benefit generations to come.
