UK Connect celebrates an outstanding year – and looks to the future

2018 has been a very successful year for UK Connect. We achieved new highs in sales, expanded the business, rebranded the company and, above all, supported the UK’s leading housebuilders with critical broadband services. As the new year fast approaches, we look back at some highlights of the past 12 months.

The year began with an important milestone as UK Connect celebrated our Five Year anniversary. In just a short time, we are well on the way to achieving our vision of becoming the leading supplier of broadband to the UK’s construction industry, thanks to a winning combination of super-fast LTE Advanced technology, swift installations and a strong ethos of customer service.

In May we re-branded as UK Connect, a name that reflects our commitment to make high-tech solutions clear and simple. Shortly afterwards we moved to our new head office in Guildford which marks the start of our ambitious plans to open more offices across the UK and strengthen our service to customers.

Over the year we virtually doubled our client base and in September recorded the highest number of sites with our fibre-speed broadband solutions to date. Our flagship rapid broadband service is now live on more than 1,000 sites across the UK and expansion is being fuelled by word-of-mouth recommendation and organic growth. Among many business wins, we were thrilled to be appointed as Taylor Wimpey’s strategic partner for high-speed site broadband connectivity across all its sites and sales offices.

As the business grows, we’ve taken on 11 new staff in recent months to meet demand. Operations manager Kayleigh Atkinson has been promoted to operations director and an important part of her role involves visiting customers to demonstrate how UK Connect can help them use the latest technology to increase productivity and reduce costs.

UK Connect is looking forward to staying at the cutting edge of mobile and wireless communications and 2019 promises to be an exciting time as 5G starts to roll out.

We couldn’t achieve all this without our loyal customers.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and successful New Year!
