Svella Connect Takes Over NMCN’s Virgin Media Rollout Contract

Friday, January 28th, 2022 (11:59 am) - Score 2,040
Virgin Media O2 Fibre Splicing

CityFibre wasn’t the only fibre broadband operator to be impacted by last year’s collapse of UK civil engineering firm NMCN (here), with ISP Virgin Media (VMO2) also being impacted. The good news is that Svella Connect, which acquired NMCN’s old business, has now completed the transfer of related contracts with Virgin.

Included in today’s deal is the delivery of a framework contract for VMO2 across the Northwest, Yorkshire and East Midlands of England, which is said to be a key part of Virgin Media’s £2.5bn framework for the “delivery of critical telecoms infrastructure across the UK.”

In short, Svella will be able to continue delivering some of VMO2’s infrastructure projects over the coming years. This includes construction of new network infrastructure, new business installations, residential installation enablement and the delivery of specific projects to support Virgin Media in expanding its national Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network.

Gavin Davies, Svella Connect MD, said:

“The acquisition of the nmcn telecoms business by Svella Connect helped secure 680 skilled jobs and the continuation of a number of key national digital infrastructure projects.

The completion of the transfer of the Virgin Media O2 contract is recognition of the confidence in Svella Connect to successfully deliver these projects. It’s a solid foundation to build the future success of our business and I’d like to thank Virgin Media O2, our colleagues and partners for their patience during the last few months.”

A VMO2 Spokesperson said:

“Given the difficult circumstances Svella Connect found themselves in, we have been hugely impressed with the way they have conducted themselves. This is a credit to Gavin and his team, and we look forward to a long and successful partnership for the future.”

End.

    And? They are a private business, they don’t travel to serve every street, neither do any of the altnets.

    Clearly your street is not ‘Critical’
    Best move to a better area:)

    We’ve spent decades trying to rid “discrimination” in this country.

    Yet, your advice suggests “it’s clearly OK to discriminate which families can have the Internet”

    SLOW CLAP. Astonishing.

    Paul – There are laws against employers, traders discriminating on grounds of race, sexuality etc. But there is no obligation to charge the same prices where the costs are not the same. So although most homes have water, sewerage, elecricity etc. the fact is that those in remote areas are not so served because it is too expensive. A cab firm will charge more for a longer journey than a shorter one. Similarly there can be no oblgation for telecoms providers to charge all customers the same regardless of cost.
