Charles Brand Group reached yet another milestone in their roll-out of Full Fibre Broadband across Northern Ireland with the first customer connection in Coalisland on the Project Stratum contract, a connection that will allow the Fibrus customer to go from 5mb to 300MB full fibre broadband speeds. This will be the first of many business and domestic customers that will avail of Fibrus Hyperfast Fibre Broadband across the Province.
To date, Charles Brand have successfully delivered full fibre broadband to more than 15,000 homes and businesses across Northern Ireland through their successful association with Fibrus Networks Ltd, now one of Northern Ireland's fastest growing full fibre broadband providers, as part of a project to roll out networks to 120,000 plus premises across Northern Ireland.
I would like to say a massive thanks for all the work that has went in over the past few months to achieving this new milestone. Having connected the first customer in Coalisland after only 3 months of Fibrus signing the contract for Project Stratum is testament to the hard work of everyone in the team and our highly valued contractorsJenny Lennon, Head of Network Build, Fibrus
The five year partnership with Fibrus affords Charles Brand the opportunity to invest in people and are already establishing a training centre to develop operational skills and accreditations in the telecoms industry to ensure delivery of their projects and create employment for hundreds of operatives within the group.
Plans are also underway to develop a network planning and design capability within the company with additional seasoned telecoms construction personnel being added at managerial level.
