FullFibre Ltd Appoint New UK CTO and Delivery Director

Network operator FullFibre Limited, which is currently rolling out a new full fibre (FTTP) broadband network to serve “at least” 500,000 UK premises by 2025, has announced that they’ve appointed Adele Whild as Director of Delivery and Ross Duke as Chief Technical Officer (CTO).

The operator, which deploys its network as a wholesale platform via Fibre Heroes for other ISPs to harness (i.e. consumers should visit that site to check coverage), is currently working in parts of Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, as well as the counties of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire under the Fastershire project.

NOTE: FullFibre Ltd is being backed by multi-billion-dollar infrastructure investment fund Basalt, which owns a majority interest in the company.

Ross Duke is currently said to have over 25 years of experience working in senior positions across a number of established industry players in telecoms, although oddly the press release doesn’t mention what they are. But a quick Google reveals that Ross was previously the CTOO of Horsebridge Network Services, which ran Persimmon Homes FTTH equipment, and prior to that he was CTO of MLL Telecom.

As for Adele, she previously worked for Tier 1 contractors and has a decade of experience working in B2B and B2C roles at Virgin Media, CityFibre, and Telent. She will now be responsible for ramping up all customer install activities across the business and managing the build control / support areas to facilitate a faster rollout.

Adele said:

“The fundamental way residential and business customers use the internet has changed. The market towns FullFibre serve have been carefully chosen to enable our partners to easily improve the online experience, creating a positive impact within local communities.”

Ross said:

“The opportunity to work at FullFibre was something far too exciting to pass up. As a business, we’re building a true wholesale only network into market towns to give the consumer access to the latest and greatest technology through a choice of their own ISP’s. At the same time, we’re providing a credible scaled choice away from the Openreach model.”

End.
