Aviva-backed ISP County Broadband, which aims to cover 500,000 premises in the rural East of England with their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network by the end of 2027, has today revealed that their company will become home to 270 employees by the end of this year (up from 170 today).

The announcement comes after the provider secured another £100m from Aviva Investors (this is in addition to the £46m that kicked everything off in 2018). Today County Broadband is building full fibre across a total of 220 villages and other communities in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

NOTE: Aviva also back other full fibre providers, such as Truespeed (here) and ITS Technology (here).

The workforce expansion follows years of growth at County Broadband, which expanded from just a dozen employees in early 2018 to reach 110 by April 2021 and 170 today. The future addition of 100 jobs will be created to fill roles spanning across network operations, design, build, IT, customer services, community engagement and other departments.

Lloyd Felton, Founder and CEO of County Broadband, said:

“This is another important milestone for County Broadband as we continue to grow our team to build and deliver the future-ready broadband services the East of England so desperately needs.

As a community provider we are fully committed to supporting local villages and towns, creating job opportunities for the region and investing in the future of local people. We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic individuals to join us at this exciting time.”

Prices for their service may vary between areas, but in most cases new customers will typically pay from £28 per month (excluding discounts) for an unlimited symmetric speed 50Mbps service with a bundled wireless router and free installation, then £48 for 300Mbps, £55 for 600Mbps and £80 for 900Mbps. Not the cheapest.

    I know someone who recently got a job there and they have said that the working conditions are awful. They deal with so many complaints and have found it completely demoralising. Be careful if you apply and see if you can shadow someone for a day perhaps as its not what they originally signed up for .
