Grain expands UK network

Grain works in the UK new-build housing sector, partnering with housebuilders to provide FTTH internet service to their developments.  The company works with developers in more than 100 locations in the market.

The latest of these will soon be able to access the full fibre service, and they include Whitley Bay and Thornaby in the North East, Blackpool in the North West and Tonypandy in Wales. The provider is also creating hundreds of new jobs thanks to the growth, with engineering and sales roles available across the country, and office-based jobs at its Carlisle headquarters.

Roland Barzegar, Chief Financial Officer at Grain says: “Our journey is an exciting one as we continue to raise the bar with our service and pricing. Not only has it meant that we have created job opportunities in Carlisle and across the UK, but it has provided choice for residents in the communities we have connected. Our accelerated build programme has allowed us to get to many of these new areas sooner than we expected, which is a win-win for customers who are joining us. As a team, we are hugely motivated by the feedback we are receiving and the national reputation we are now growing, and we are excited about Grain’s future.”
