Soldiering On Awards 2019 Finalist

UK Connect Finalists in the Soldiering On Awards 2019

We’re excited to share that UK Connect has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Soldiering On Awards 2019 in the Business of the Year category.

The awards, now in their ninth year, recognise and celebrate a range of inspirational people and teams by highlighting the outstanding achievements of current and former service people, their families and all who support the Armed Forces community.

PJ Farr, our managing director and a former soldier for the British Army, founded UK Connect over five years ago; we’ve enjoyed much success and now work with some of the industry’s biggest housebuilder names, providing more than 1,000 sites across the UK with our flagship rapid broadband service: Site Connect.

PJ comments:

“We couldn’t be more proud to have been shortlisted as part of such a fantastic programme which honours such a range of incredible people within the Armed Forces family. Whoever takes home the prize on the night, we are very excited to celebrate how far we have come.”

He continues:

“It’s strange to think just over six years ago UK Connect was just a dream of mine – the concept was conceived while travelling in the army; I was often posted to remote locations and, in an age where the internet is so fundamental to day-to-day life, it got me thinking about how businesses survive in areas where broadband is not available. When I left the forces, I got to work creating a solution, and now here we are.”

The Soldiering On Awards 2019 ceremony takes place on Friday 5th April 2019. In the meantime, take a further look at our story.
