Grain builds their own fibre optic network with a dedicated fibre cable direct to every home, meaning that homes don’t share fibres with their neighbours. The company also pledges to never increase a customer’s price in their contract term.

CFO at Grain Connect Roland Barzegar said: “This 200m investment is a huge vote of confidence for our regional roll-out phases across the UK.

"Grain is committed to providing a 1Gb capable full fibre network, with great pricing and fair contract terms.”
