LEADING telecoms infrastructure provider Cellnex UK has opened three new offices across Scotland, Central and North England as part of its continued investment in wireless connectivity across the UK.
The new sites in Manchester, Leamington Spa and North Lanarkshire, close to Glasgow, will host more than 150 people, providing Cellnex UK with access to local talent to help deliver its growth ambitions. The new locations will support the company in achieving its goal of providing digital equality across the country, through the provision of upgrades to 4G and 5G infrastructure, smart communications networks, street level infrastructure and private networks. The regional hubs will also help to ensure Cellnex UK is delivering localised support to its customers, as well as increasing the opportunity for partnerships and collaborative projects across each region.
Cellnex UK is part of Cellnex Telecom, Europe’s leading operator of wireless telecommunications and broadcasting infrastructure. The company has invested £6.1 billion in its UK operations over the last 18-months and is a key player in the UK’s roll-out of 5G networks. As the owner of over 9,000 active sites across the country, Cellnex UK’s work is supporting the Government’s Levelling Up agenda, bringing connectivity to both urban and rural areas and helping to bridge the digital divide.
David Crawford, Managing Director, Cellnex UK, commented: “Our three new offices will allow Cellnex UK to deliver an increasingly localised service and contribute to economic growth and digital innovation in each region. The regional approach will help us to accelerate our work in bringing connectivity to everyone, everywhere in the UK. I’m very excited to begin using the spaces to collaborate with our colleagues, customers, partners and suppliers.”
