Manchester’s 4th Utility expands into new Hale office

4th Utility's new Hale HQ

Full-fibre broadband provider 4th Utility has moved to a new home in Greater Manchester as it gears up for another period of growth. 

The independent Internet Service Provider (ISP) has leased a new, 700 sq ft office space for its headquarters at the prestigious Beech House on Cambridge Road in Hale.

CEO Tony Hughes said: “We’re a company with huge ambition and our new base will allow for further expansion, both in terms of the number of customers we provide for and our staff headcount.”

The firm, which partners with residential and commercial landlords and property developers, has been rolling out its full fibre offering across the country recently. Since its foundation five years ago, 4th Utility has increased its workforce to 55 from a standing start, and has passed the 30,000 mark for homes connected across the UK over the past year. The new connections include both new apartment blocks and retrofitting existing buildings with full fibre solutions.

It has customers spanning from York to South London, Essex and Bristol as its footprint continues to grow, and hopes to connect even more properties next year.

Hughes added: “We’ve quickly become an established player in the ISP market, and our aim is to continue expanding and opening up access to fast and reliable broadband for as many people as possible.”

Established in 2017 and headquartered in Hale, Greater Manchester, 4th Utility offers an affordable digital inclusion tariff, 30-day rolling contracts across all packages, and 10-minute, hassle-free installation, with new customers online within 60 seconds of signing up to the service.
