Carillion, with our delivery partner, telent, holds the largest telecommunications service contract in the United Kingdom.
Carillion and telent together provide a joined up solution to the design, installation, commission, support and maintenance challenges of telecoms networks.
Our relationship with Openreach, BT’s enterprise delivery business, began in 2008. Since then, Carillion telent have been delivering ever-more complex connectivity to businesses and homes throughout the UK.
Our key services are civil engineering works and cable installation. We bring our skills to copper cable provision, pole installation and replacement, fibre optic connections to business premises, cable recovery, safety and security work and repairs.
We are helping to expand capacity through the installation or upgrading of street cabinets and doing all associated connection work.
We have been the largest civil engineering and cable installation service provider to the highly successful roll-out of UK superfast broadband which now covers 90% of the UK.
