A telecoms provider based in Newton-le-Willows is fast becoming a market leader within telecommunications just 12 months after it launched its full-fibre networking to clients across the UK.
Despite in its infancy, Shawton Telecoms & Utilities is deploying at pace and scale and has increased its monthly revenue by ten-fold since start of the year. Working alongside partners Digital Infrastructure, City Fibre and Be Fibre, the Tier 1 contractor is on track to deliver services to more than one million homes over the next five years through their unrivalled new approach to the industry.

Within our core management team, we have 135 years of combined expertise covering telecoms, utilities, construction and civils so they really are unrivalled when it comes to providing full-fibre networking.”
