Infrastructure services contractor, Kelly Group has been selected to partner with independent provider, Community Fibre on the latter’s full-fibre roll-out in London, UK.

The partnership will see the companies work together to build the network across London, where, to date, Community Fibre has enabled full fibre connectivity to 200,000 homes. The alternative provider aims to connect one million properties directly to the home by the end of 2023. 

The partnership will additionally create around 200 jobs for local communities with the benefit of adding to the industry’s skills pool. Kelly Group will recruit, coach and develop trainees from its national training centre in North London, where it runs more than 50 training programs.

We are particularly excited to be joining forces with a company that not only provides an excellent product, which will be key to upgrading London to a true Gigabit city, but also does so with community values at the forefront.’
