National award for Wildanet


Wildanet was named the UK’s Best Rural Fibre Provider at the UK Fibre Awards.

The accolade represents a significant achievement for Liskeard-based Wildanet, which was flying the flag for Cornwall against tough national competition, including industry heavyweights such as Openreach and Gigaclear.

The UK Fibre Awards celebrate the best in technology, projects, people, organisations, sustainability, culture and community initiatives from the UK’s booming fibre, AltNet and carrier sectors.

The winners were announced at a gala event at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel, attended by more than 500 guests from across the industry.

Wildanet also won an award for Best Sustainability Programme and was Highly Commended in the Sales/Commercial Team of the Year category

CEO, Helen Wylde-Archibald, said: “As a company founded in Cornwall specifically to extend gigabit-enabled broadband to rural and hard-to-reach areas, to be named the UK’s Best Rural Fibre Provider in these leading industry awards was an incredibly special and very proud moment.”
