Sky expands fibre reach with BUUK partnership

Sky has announced a strategic partnership with BUUK Infrastructure that will see the operator obtain wholesale access to BUUK’s full fibre network.

Last-mile network provider BUUK services more than 1 million homes with over 30,000 discrete networks.

This latest partnership builds upon existing arrangements between the companies, and focuses on the availability of Sky TV in new build homes. 

The deal will also see Sky become the anchor tenant for broadband services in new and existing residential developments connected by BUUK, with 200,000 new builds planned for the next 12 months. 

Stephen van Rooyen, CEO UK and Ireland, Sky, said: “We’re committed to driving forward ultrafast connectivity in the UK and this deal with BUUK enables us to use our anchor tenancy to unlock infrastructure investment, while entering a new market with significant potential for growth.”

 Clive Linsdell, CEO BUUK Infrastructure, added: “As BUUK continues to increase the speed with which we connect new homes to full fibre broadband, we are excited to deepen our partnership with Sky – the UK’s leading broadband and entertainment provider, present in millions of homes across the country. Together, Sky and BUUK will ensure that more consumers can access ultra-fast broadband speeds on the day they move into their new home.”
