The fibre optic solutions provider said it had identified a significant demand in the UK for its air blown fibre and micro-trench deployment solutions.
“With companies in the UK such as Virgin Media and others making unprecedented investment into fibre deployment, Lite Access – UK will be in the enviable position of bringing a new and highly advantageous deployment methodology to a market with tremendous potential,” said chief operating officer Dylan Griffiths.
Griffiths will head the new office in Wales. He is a former British Telecoms engineer with more than 25 years’ experience in the fibre optic industry.
“The many long-term relationships we have in place at senior levels of the telecom industry in the UK will prove vital to our goal of further establishing Lite Access as the micro-trench deployment solution of choice worldwide.”
The group’s micro-trenching technique is the least disruptive and most environmentally friendly method of fibre optic implementation available.
The UK government has set a target of rolling out superfast internet to 95% of homes by the end of 2017.
