Actavo secures build contract with Gigaclear

Actavo has secured its first build contract with Gigaclear, a rural broadband provider. As part of the agreement, Actavo will connect 7,000 premises to Gigaclear’s fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network in the Buckingham region.

In December 2021, the team completed a turnkey survey and design on a hybrid physical infrastructure access (PIA) solution in Buckingham, including cabinet deployment. The first premises will be ready for service in March 2022, and full completion is scheduled for early 2023.

This is part of the overall five-year contract that Actavo secured with Gigaclear in 2021 as its primary provider of network builds across the South Central region of England. As part of the contract, Actavo’s network and in-home division will create a workforce of over 100 across its supply chain, including network designers, engineers and management, to provide a full fibre network build across residential and commercial properties.

Mo Saleh, head of telecoms, network and in-home solutions UK, Actavo, said, “This is a significant milestone award for Actavo. We are delighted to partner with Gigaclear as its primary provider of network builds in this region, and we look forward to bringing ultrafast broadband to the people and businesses of the South Central region of England over the coming months. Securing this contract is a testament to the quality of work and reliable service provided by our team.”
