Trooli expands into new Kings Hill headquarters to accommodate growth
The continued success of Trooli and the growth in both its network size and customer base has seen the independent Internet Service Provider relocate to a new prestigious suite of offices in Kings Hill, near West Malling, to house its rapidly-expanding workforce.
The move comes as job numbers at Trooli reach more than 230 and the company takes its full fibre broadband into new parts of the country.
Trooli has successfully focussed on serving households and businesses in rural communities and its network is now able to serve more than 220,000 premises. The company aims to be the UK’s largest rural full fibre provider by the end of the year.
Recent months have seen its state-of-the-art, high-speed network go live in Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hampshire and Suffolk, building upon its well-established markets in Kent, East Sussex and Berkshire. Work is now under way to extend into Dorset and Norfolk as well.
To support its growth in East Anglia, the company has also launched a new regional build office in Ipswich to complement one opened in Bracknell, Buckinghamshire, last year.
Trooli’s new head office remains in Kings Hill in Kent, but is almost three times bigger than its existing premises and able to support a workforce that is expected to rise by a further 40 per cent, to 320, by the end of the year.
Andy Conibere, Chief Executive Officer of Trooli, said: “This is a really exciting time for Trooli as demand for our Gigabit-capable service continues to rise above and beyond our expectations. Our new head office is a key and important step in our ability to build on our current success and to accelerate our roll-out plans even further and faster.
“While the availability of full fibre broadband is growing in the UK, too many communities in rural areas still remain overlooked, and that is a gap we are committed to filling – while maintaining the excellent customer service and network reliability we are so proud of.”
Trooli’s new 11,300 sq ft offices were formally opened by constituency MP and Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat alongside Matt Boughton, the Leader of local Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council.
Mr Tugendhat said: “Trooli have accelerated the rollout of broadband in many villages over recent years, and their investment locally is a huge vote of confidence for our community. It was an honour to open their new office and I look forward to working with them to deliver better broadband across all areas – both urban and rural.”
Unlike most traditional internet providers, Trooli does not rely on the historic Openreach copper telephone cabling to deliver its service. Instead, the company installs its own new full fibre network all the way to a customer’s premises, allowing for guaranteed ultrafast speeds and greater reliability.
In 2021, the privately-owned company secured a £67.5m investment from a consortium of commercial lenders. Trooli previously received €30m in backing from the Connecting Europe Broadband Fund (CEBF) and £5m from NatWest.
