Alternative UK wireless and full fibre ISP Airband, which currently aims to deploy their ultrafast Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network to cover over 500,000 premises by the end of 2025 (here), has revealed that their recent contract wins look set to help them create 1,000 new job opportunities.

The Worcestershire-based provider, which is now owned by Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI), recently scooped-up another two contract wins in Devon, Somerset (here) and Cheshire (here) worth a total of £30 million. As a result, Airband will be able to expand their gigabit-capable FTTP network to another 44,000+ properties.

Naturally this means they’ll also be expanding their team during 2021, not least by creating over 1,000 new job opportunities, with training, in Worcestershire, the South West and beyond.

Redmond Peel, Founder and MD of Airband, said:

“This has been an incredibly busy and exciting few months for the Airband team. From its very inception, the Airband mission has been to provide high-quality, affordable broadband to those that need it the most. In today’s world, where broadband is relied on more than ever before, this mission has never been more critical. We are proud to deliver life-changing services to those who have, until now, found themselves to be on the wrong side of the digital divide”.

Customers of Airband typically pay from £38 per month on a 12-month term for an unlimited 40Mbps (10Mbps upload) package and that goes up to £47 per month for their top 250Mbps (75Mbps upload) tier. A one-off installation charge of £99 is usually applicable. The provider does a mix of Government-funded projects and has a growing number of demand-led fibre broadband projects too.

    What does this actually mean for your customers in North Devon with a constant unreliable Internet connection. And as you’re expanding does this mean you’ll be entering the 21st century and having technical support at weekends in the uk instead of having to speak to someone in South Africa
