Through successful collaboration and exemplary communication led by the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), the company is proud to facilitate the expansion of internet connectivity in the region, in alignment with the government's mission to bridge the digital divide.
The total value of the investment is £250,000.00, of which Runfibre will contribute an upfront investment to build the network. Once the beneficiaries are connected and satisfied, Runfibre will claim individual voucher amounts, enabling more seamless access to high-speed internet services for the wider communities. By working in close cooperation with South Gloucestershire Council's Connecting South Glos team and local delivery leads for Project Gigabit, it has been ensured that funding is optimally allocated to connect the hardest-to-reach properties in the area. This collaborative effort, driven by BDUK's proactive communication, has been instrumental in the early commencement of the project, ensuring that every property in the region gains access to reliable high-speed internet services.
As a result of this project, residents and businesses in Falfield can look forward to harnessing the full potential of digital innovation. In light of this achievement, Dave Swanston, the CEO of Runfibre Ltd, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, "We are delighted to announce our next project as part of the GBVS scheme, thanks to the remarkable collaboration between the teams involved at DCMS/DSIT, BDUK, SG Council and so on. Their unwavering dedication and support have been invaluable in realising our shared vision of ensuring that every property in our region gains access to reliable high-speed internet services. We anticipate expanding our services to more rural locations in the near future, thereby bridging the digital gap and fostering a more digitally inclusive society."
As a socially responsible enterprise, Runfibre continues to champion the cause of digital inclusion, empowering communities to thrive in an increasingly connected world. The company's commitment to bridging the digital divide aligns seamlessly with the UK Government's vision of delivering cutting-edge technological solutions to underserved areas.
