The third annual  UK Fibre Awards  was held yesterday, Thursday 6th June in London, which saw various broadband ISPs and full fibre network builders from across the UK celebrate their achievements.  

Freedom Fibre was honoured with awards from two categories, winning the top spot for M&A Deal of the year and Highly Commended for Best Wholesale Fibre Provider, highlighting our growth and innovation in key areas of the business. 


M&A Deal of the Year 2024 

Following our recent strategic merger with VX Fibre and LilaConnect to create a larger, stronger and more diverse company, the award recognised the significance of the transformative impact and strategic foresight that has enhanced our position in the market.  

Judges felt that Freedom Fibre’s achievement in securing this merger demonstrated its leadership, vision, and adaptability in navigating the evolving landscape of telecommunications. By leveraging this partnership, Freedom Fibre is poised to accelerate its growth trajectory, unlocking new opportunities for market penetration and service enhancement.  


Best Wholesale Fibre Provider 

Freedom Fibre was  highly commended in the category that awarded the broad achievements of a UK wholesale fibre provider, reflecting its success in driving its full fibre solutions into customers through the channel partner community. 

Freedom Fibre has experienced exceptional growth and success over the last 12 months, which is reflected in a variety of ways, from our offerings to consumers and successful Project Gigabit bids, to our expanded build footprint, which was recognised as commendable accomplishments by the judging panel.   

Finance Director of the Year

The same evening, we attended the 2023 Finance Awards North West by Robert Walters. The aim of the event is to promote and celebrate the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals within the North West's finance community. 

Our Finance Director Darren Woods took home the trophy for Finance Director of the Year (Less than £25m Turnover category), due to his contribution to the successful merger and his hard work to ensure the best outcome for all parties involved.  


Marie Danby, Director of Operations said:

“We are immensely proud of our success at the Fibre Awards and the Finance Awards North West. It’s brilliant to see that our commitment to pushing boundaries coupled with our ambitious approach has been recognised.
We’re looking forward to another year of growth and achieving new milestones together.”
