Freedom Fibre, Keeping It Clean -Altnet Provides North Shropshire Communities with Litter Picking Kits

Freedom Fibre has taken a proactive step to keep Shropshire clean by distributing litter pick kits across North Shropshire.

Freedom Fibre, the rapidly growing altnet, is currently in the process of rolling out its lightning-fast full-fibre broadband network to residences and businesses throughout North Shropshire. The network is pretty well known for community projects. Their latest move has been to support every parish in the region by providing them the opportunity to request a kit litter picking kit (free of charge), which included litter pickers, bin bags, hoop-holders, gloves, and ‘Keep Shropshire Tidy’ high-visibility jackets.

It’s not the craziest news we’ve reported on, but we love the message behind it, and we love even more the efforts Freedom is showing with the community.

This initiative is part of Freedom Fibre’s commitment to social responsibility in North Shropshire. In April 2023, the company secured a government-funded Project Gigabit contract to bring lightning-fast broadband connectivity to approximately 12,000 hard-to-reach properties and businesses in the area. Additionally, Freedom Fibre aims to expand its network to around 50,000 more premises in North Shropshire.

Marie Danby, Freedom Fibre’s Customer Operations Director, said: “As we roll-out our full-fibre broadband network across North Shropshire, it is important to us that we invest in and support the communities where we are operating. We’re so happy to distribute these litter pick kit, and we hope that local groups will make good use of them.”

Cllr. Robert Macey, Portfolio Holder for Culture & Digital at Shropshire Council, said: “I’m glad that Freedom Fibre has now started installing its full-fibre broadband network in North Shropshire. As a multi-million pound project investing in our local communities, it is good to see Freedom Fibre bringing forward initiatives like this.”
