A big welcome

UK Connect warmly welcomes David Allan as our new 2nd line support engineer. The expansion of the team marks the continuing growth of the company, whose client base has almost doubled in a year. UK Construction giants such as Taylor WimpeyCALA HomesCrest Nicholson and many others have recently made the decision to trust UK Connect with mission critical rapid broadband and connectivity solutions and thus new staff have been needed to keep up with the business of our Guildford-based office.

I wish David the best of luck, and am fully assured he will strive to deliver our core company values.
