Fast-growing full fibre broadband provider 4th Utility has received a £25m investment to boost its ambitious plans for expansion.

The firm, which provides ultrafast connectivity to communities across the UK, has secured the ‘game-changing’ funding from Netherlands-based NIBC Bank, and will now look to accelerate growth and connect more homes than ever before.

4th Utility partners with residential and commercial landlords and property developers to design, install and upgrade their properties with state-of-the-art FTTP infrastructure, bringing homes a futureproof standard of connectivity.

It recently announced its biggest ever connectivity project in Greenwich, London – and the latest funding will allow it to expand even further.

Stuart Lees, non-executive chairman at 4th Utility, said: “Today’s announcement marks another significant milestone for 4th Utility, empowering us to accelerate our vision for growth and ensure even more residential homes benefit from full fibre broadband.

“This new game-changing fund means we are poised to bring fast, affordable, future-proof broadband to lots more families and communities across the UK, whilst reinforcing our commitment to digital connectivity for all.”
