Light Source delivered the millionth fibre to the Premises in Prestwich, Manchester with Openreach.

We are delighted to announce that the Millionth home passed with Fibre to the premise was in Prestwich, Manchester, on the 29th November. This is a huge milestone that we have reached in the UK and we look forward to continuing our work with Openreach to deliver fibre connectivity to many more homes to change people’s lives for the better.

Bryn Hill, our Operations Manager in Manchester, said “I received an Email from FND’s Project Manager Stuart Cowell last week to say their records show Manchester RFS was the highest for THP delivery across the North, East & West UK last week. London pushed us to second over the whole of the UK. But overall, these are great figures achieved once again with the work from Light Source and we are hoping to close out Q3 on top again.”

On the Fibre Cities project in Manchester, Light Source are currently working in Prestwich, Failsworth, Bury & Whitefield for Openreach’s Fibre Network Delivery. Our target for all these areas is 2453THP until the end of Q3 27/12. In early December 2020, Light Source delivered 1332THP into commissioning, which left 1121THP to hit our target. This was not only achieved but was significantly surpassed prior to the target deadline. This was a fantastic achievement by everyone as our teams faced many challenges along the way, however they overcame them with ease.

Bryn Hill added, “Light Source, Manchester, is thriving through this difficult period working collectively together to achieve great numbers. I am very proud to be part of the team, the spirit & camaraderie amongst the staff is second to none.”

Congratulations to all involved in this wonderful success story!
