CityFibre is investing £21m in a new Lincoln-wide network that will bring full-fibre broadband connectivity within reach of every home and business. Existing fibre broadband networks consist largely of ageing copper networks. As part of CityFibre’s nationwide fibre upgrade, aged cabling will be replaced with 100% fibre-optic cabling. The new fibre networks will be able to deliver gigabit connectivity and 5G. This fibre work is already underway in Lincoln and will bring with it an economic boost for the local area by enabling truly digital working.
The project to build the network has already brought an influx of opportunities to the local area.
Trust Utility Management has been selected as CityFibre’s Build Partner in Lincoln. Trust is a leading multidisciplinary service provider across the Midlands and the UK. Their expertise spans Telecomms, Utilities, Project Management and Traffic Management, among others.
Bill Hammond, Managing Director at Trust Utility Management, said: “CityFibre’s commitment to delivering the latest in full-fibre technology to the city of Lincoln is very exciting and we welcome the opportunity to work on such a prestigious contract. We are certain that with our vast utility contract management experience and the high calibre team that we are building, this project will prove to be a success for Trust Utility Management Ltd and our client City Fibre.”
Trust is driven by five key pillars that inform everything they do; health and safety, delivering to client milestones, sharing information, sustainable recycling and developing their workforce. Trust is committed to investing in their teams, offering paid training courses for ongoing professional development and upskilling those newer to the industry.
To deliver this project Trust are now offering more than 30 roles in the local Lincoln area.
