Aberla Utilities secures contract with Digital Infrastructure

Charlie Ruddy, Chief Executive Officer

Infrastructure owner and ISP, Digital Infrastructure (DI), has partnered with Aberla Utilities as part of a 5-year contract to deliver fibre to the premises (FTTP) across approximately 38,000 residential properties around Crewe, Cheshire.

Aberla Utilities is a part of the North-West based Aberla Group and is known for its expertise and solutions in the telecommunications sector, including surveying, designing, installing and maintenance.

Digital Infrastructure is a telecommunications industry leader - that facilitates wholesale connectivity to businesses and residential clients. DI is the builder of Gigabit networks. The project will reinstate full fibre broadband across Crewe via FTTP, which offers a much faster and stronger internet connection straight to your property, as opposed to FTTC, where copper cables are still present.

Paul McCarren, Aberla’s chief executive officer said, “As the telecoms sector grows rapidly, we are happy to provide solutions for everyone across the UK and in this instance, Crewe. We are delighted to be working with the likes of Digital Infrastructure to further implement FTTP.”

Charlie Ruddy, chief executive officer at Digital Infrastructure said, “We’re really excited to be working with Aberla as part of this contract, it’s the beginning of a strong relationship and I’ve been impressed with their ingenuity and commitment.”

The first stages of the project which commenced mid-June 2021, focusses on surveying and rod and roping. This will be followed by cabling and testing over the coming months. After this process has been completed, the project will then be handed back over to DigitalInfrastructure.

Aberla Utilities is proving to be a vital supply chain partner for ISPs as the sector progresses towards full-fibre in the UK by 2025. This partnership aims to create a better-connected and future-proof society
