Bristol-based fibre optics specialist Pulse Networks celebrates a win at UK Fibre Awards

Bristol-based fibre optics and telecommunications firm Pulse Networks has been recognised at the UK Fibre Awards 2023.

The growing firm – which has increased its headcount from one to 45 in the past 12 months – was highly commended in the Best Fibre Rollout Supplier category.

Pulse Networks acts as principal contractor for four of the UK’s top 10 internet service providers.

The company delivers a full turnkey service – from survey, design and civils to fibre installation and testing – across Central and the West of England on their behalf.

The telecoms industry is in a state of reform with a number of ISPs pulling back on construction due to a hold in investment from their parent companies. Multiple companies are going through consolidation and others considering buyouts and mergers of their current asset base/infrastructure.

The company has also created a renewables subsidiary, which has won its first contract with a leading UK solar farm developer.

Managing director Josh Packer (pictured centre front) said: “I have extremely ambitious plans for Pulse, not only within telecoms, but also in renewables with Pulse Eco Ltd.

“As well as what we achieve on the job, I am proud to represent a team of individuals with huge hearts that go out of their way to support Pulse’s work with mental health and young homelessness charities.

“In March 2023, all Pulse operatives also worked an hour of overtime, the earnings from which were donated to the British Red Cross’ Turkey-Syria earthquake appeal.”
