RunFibre Honoured with Armed Forces Covenant Silver Award

Monday, Sep 25th, 2023 (7:55 am) - Score 264

Broadband ISP RunFibre, which is deploying a new 1Gbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across rural parts of South Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire in England, has been awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Silver Award in recognition of their commitment to supporting veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their families.

The announcement follows last year’s decision to sign the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC), which broadly reflects a pledge to recognise the contribution of serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families – often as part of recruitment (i.e. ensuring they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives).

NOTE: The AFC is also supported by many other broadband providers, such as BT, Sky Broadband, EE, Plusnet, TalkTalk, CityFibre, Virgin Media, Wildanet and G.Network etc.

The Silver Award recognises the company’s commitment to all this, which shouldn’t be too surprising because the provider’s CEO, Dave Swanston, is a military veteran himself with two tours of duty in Afghanistan. The company’s boss has actively spearheaded their dedication to honouring the armed forces and their invaluable contributions.

Dave Swanston, CEO of Runfibre, said:

“It’s a tremendous honour for us to receive the Armed Forces Covenant Silver Award. At Runfibre, we hold a deep appreciation for the sacrifices made by the armed forces and their families. We believe that access to high-quality internet should be universal and that no one’s digital life should be defined by their postcode. We are committed to ensuring that veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their families receive the support they deserve, and this award validates our ongoing commitment.”

Customers usually pay from £25 per month on a 24-month term for their 100Mbps (symmetric speed) package, which rises to £60 for their top 1Gbps tier (the fastest tiers also include Wi-Fi extenders and a Wi-Fi 6 router). Plus, they offer a cheaper 100Mbps Social Tariff for £20 per month. The provider also sells different services over the CityFibre network in Wolverhampton and Gloucester.
