Connexin onboards contractors to ramp up network expansion

Connexin has announced the onboarding of two new contractors – MAP Group and SCD Group – to accelerate its full fibre network expansion across Hull.

The Hull-based IoT and digital Infrastructure specialist is targeting half a million broadband-connected homes across the city.

Connexin will work with MAP Group, a provider of professional technology services, and SCD Group, a multi-discipline infrastructure contractor, to fully complete the fibre to the premise (FTTP) expansion across all of Hull and key areas of the East Riding of Yorkshire by December 2023.

Furqan Alamgir, CEO and co-founder, Connexin, said, “Our full fibre build has progressed spectacularly since we announced our plans to roll-out in Hull, we’ve seen thousands of customers get connected and finally given our community true broadband choice.

“We’re excited to work with SCD Group and MAP Group given their experience as Tier 1 contractors to deliver our best-in-class fibre network build. Completing our Hull and East Yorkshire build will be a key milestone in Connexin’s journey to become one of the biggest alt-nets in the North.”

Matty Carlin, director at MAP Group, added, “Map Group is delighted to be partnering with Connexin to deliver this new fibre network build project. This is a fantastic opportunity for us as a company to further enhance our client base throughout the UK. We are really looking forward to developing our partnership with Connexin further in the coming years.”

The news follows on from the launch of the Connexin SmartHome App – the latest offering from Connexin to enhance the broadband experience for homeowners by allowing Wi-Fi network and security to be managed directly on their mobile phone.
