FibreNation and Makehappen forge multi-million-pound partnership for UK-wide Fibre Rollout
Makehappen Group Ltd. has been appointed by FibreNation to manage the infrastructure build for the upcoming rollouts, using advanced operations and equipment to lay the foundations for the installation of FibreNation’s ultra-fibre optic broadband.
The venture partnership comes shortly after the joint acquisition of telecoms solutions provider, Future Network Solutions, traffic management and utility company, 2 Works and specialised vehicle hire company, 2 Rent to forge Makehappen Group Ltd.

The partnership has already completed a successful network build of its gigabit-ready fibre to a further 40,000 homes and businesses in York, with plans now focusing on rollout across other northern locations including Harrogate, Knaresborough and Ripon.
The rollout is part of a wider plan to connect homes and businesses to broadband speeds of up to 1000Mbps without unwarranted interruptions, unleashing the power of 5G and smart cities.
