Hull-based fibre operator scoops hat trick of industry awards

Wholesale fibre network operator, MS3 Networks, has picked up three awards at this year’s UK Fibre Awards.

MS3 was awarded Overall fibre provider of the year, Best wholesale fibre provider and Executive leadership team (ELT) of the year in recognition of the company’s commitment to bringing fairer, better choice of broadband provider to residents across Hull and the Humber region. The team was also highly commended in the Best sustainability programme category in recognition of its commitment to responsible practices.

Showcasing achievements across the fibre sector, the UK Fibre Awards celebrates excellence in fibre rollout and take up. This year’s event saw record attendees brought together in celebration of the nation’s booming fibre sector.

Picking up gold in the Best wholesale fibre provider category, MS3 Networks was praised for its commitment to supporting the channel and helping a growing network of altnets thrive across Hull and the Humber region. The company’s launch of an industry-first price comparison website for its internet service provider (ISP) partners in April 2023, which allows end-users to compare the package, speed and price of ISPs in their area, demonstrates MS3’s commitment to the channel. In fact, MS3 now boasts an ISP network of 49 wholesale partners, and has enjoyed a 500 per cent increase in orders through the channel in the past twelve months.

MS3 also won gold for the ELT of the year. A new category for 2024, MS3 came out ahead following significant expansion of its ELT team and a revenue growth of 122 per cent. Most notably, the company scooped the final, largest award of the evening — Overall fibre provider.

“Winning not one, but three, UK Fibre Awards marks an incredible milestone for the team,” said Guy Miller, CEO of MS3 Networks. “We’ve experienced phenomenal growth in the past twelve months, having completed our build in Scunthorpe and making significant progress towards completing our build in Hull. We know we’re making a huge difference to local people — with a 500 per cent increase in orders of people all saving hundreds of pounds in their annual broadband costs — and it’s great the team has been recognised for its hard work. It’s the second time we’ve won a best wholesale award in the past year, which is truly a testament to the work we’re putting in.”
