County Broadband Van and FTTP Engineers

Colchester-based alternative network ISP County Broadband, which aims to reach 500,000 premises across the East of England with their new gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network by the end of 2027, has today announced the appointment of Chris Davies as Chief Information Officer (CIO).

Chris is known to have over 10 years’ experience across the IT and Telecoms industry and previously worked with Virgin Media, where he helped with developing new tech-driven solutions to support business growth and competitiveness. But he’ll now be responsible for overseeing CB’s customer engagement, while driving the development of new products and services to support the growing needs of homes and businesses.

The full fibre provider, which is being supported by £146 million of funding from Aviva Investors (here), is currently deploying full fibre across rural parts of Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk in England (i.e. they’re building to over 220 villages and rising). Aviva also backs Truespeed (here) and ITS Technology (here) etc.

County Broadband CEO and Founder, Lloyd Felton, added:

“Chris joins with a fresh perspective to support our growth ambitions. It’s an exciting time for County Broadband as we continue to invest in our team as we accelerate our rollout of full fibre broadband across the East of England.

We’re living through a period of rapid technological developments from virtual reality, AI to more advanced connected devices. The direction of travel is clear and it’s vital homes and businesses can rely on their broadband as the foundation to make this all possible as the way we live and work continues to evolve. We’re very pleased to have Chris on board to support this ambition.”

      Chris, could you start with giving an update to the people who have bothered to agree to join County Broadband already? It feels much like we were sold a pack of lies with connection dates proposed years ago.
      As someone who has “signed a contract” and had a direct debit setup years ago, there is still no sign of anything happening in our village!
      Simple communication should be highest on your agenda, followed by realistic time scales which are made public to your customers.
      I also know plenty of people in our villages who didn’t want to sign up because the contracts have some dubious terms in…
      Good luck! East Anglia really needs the connectivity soon please!
