UK Broadband is the UK's largest commercial holder of national radio spectrum suitable for 4G mobile services and fixed wireless solutions. We switched on the first 4G LTE system for commercial services in the UK in February 2012 in London and now provide 4G LTE services in London, Reading, Swindon and Scunthorpe.
We provide wireless data capacity, equipment, services and solutions to the telecoms industry, service providers, channel partners and the public sector.
By offering 4G LTE wireless services over our extensive holding of national radio spectrum, we can deliver high-capacity Next Generation Access broadband and mobile data services to help meet needs such as efficient mobile working, digital and social inclusion, re-deployable surveillance, community healthcare and education, as well as city and rural, home and business broadband access.
Our vision is to work with partners to provide greater digital freedom by enabling people to benefit from high speed data with access to a world of rich content when and where they want it.
”The time from the initial contact to setting up an interview (a couple of hours) was really impressive as it gave me the message that UK Broadband was serious about the role and that there was a sense of urgency. I felt that with the job description and the company information that I had, I knew enough about UK Broadband to have a view on the company. The process to get references etc was painless for me and the standard contract was pretty straightforward. The 'readiness' of UK Broadband on my first day was great - not many companies that have laptops, emails etc set up on day 1.”
”The VP HR spent quite a bit of time ensuring I got a reasonable understanding of the business and the general environment to get a feel for whether I would fit in to the culture. This was good because it gave me an open and honest picture of the business and gave me the chance to make a good assessment of whether it was a job I wanted. By the end of the interview I was sure that UKB is somewhere I wanted to work, the role was something I would enjoy and the VP HR was somebody I wanted to work for. My first day was really well planned out and I really appreciated that. There is nothing worse than a first day when you are sitting around with nothing to do and not sure of what you should be doing, but here I had a full agenda planned out for the day. The initial welcome and set up was informative, including lots of practical and helpful information. I had a good amount of time booked in with colleagues so I got quite a good knowledge base right from the start. “
“I had spoken to UK Broadband about a previous role last year. I was actually quite impressed that you had kept my details, remembered/noted the interaction before and then contacted me proactively for this position. Very quick to respond and get interviews arranged in a very short timeframe – came over as really flexible. Especially as you knew that I had other jobs going on, I really appreciated people making decisions and coming back quickly.
Good to start at 10am on the first day – means less stress about being late when you haven’t done the journey in rush hour before! I thought it was also very nice to be introduced to everyone (and that an email had been sent about my arrival) so although I didn’t remember everyone’s names, they all knew exactly who I was! On my first day all employees were friendly and happy to help in the first few days, I haven’t come across anyone who is obstructive or uncooperative at all!“
