County Broadband intends to expand network to 500,000 premises

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.

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.

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.
