Consultancy services provided by FarrPoint catalysed a number of successful bids to fund full fibre connectivity in the Highland Council and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) regions, with a combined value of £28.5m.
The authorities were awarded the funding by the Government in the Chancellor's spring statement as part of the £190m Challenge Fund to promote the roll out of full fibre to local areas.
Andrew Muir, CEO and co-founder of IT, telecoms and infrastructure
consultancy FarrPoint, said: "Demand for access will only increase and this funding will play a vital role in making sure that the deployment of gigabit-capable full fibre infrastructure is commercially viable and in place."
FarrPoint was founded in Edinburgh over 10 years ago and has offices in London and Manchester.
The company has a strong track record in tendering and procurement for connectivity and technology solutions, working with the Scottish Government, the NHS and a number of city and county councils.
