Hi everyone, i work as a digger operator (360 CPCS Above & below tickets) & i have been searching for weeks to try and find out which companies are laying the Fibre Optical networks in the country, I know this is a real long shot but ive been in touch with the likes of BT/TalkTalk/Virgin they all dont know know which companies have got the contracts well at call centre level? I have search high and low & i am just about to give up & i thought id give the Forum a try? all i am after is to find out which companies there is working out there so i can approach them for work in the diggers digging the trenches & it has been such hard work i never thought it would be? Any help would be much appreciated please..

Aitchbee Thanks! Bumpkin sorry i did forget to put that i am in Cambridgeshire but would work anywhere tbh, thanks once again ;-)

Loads of BT work going on in Cambridge at the moment, suggest you try "Carillion Telent" as a starting point. I will try to get you a phone number for a subbie but don't raise your hopes on this and if I can it may well be Oxford where a mate of mine is working for BT as a cable layer.

I should have said he is in charge of the cable laying.

Any ideas pls guys?

Hi again, I am not sure what you actually want. Are you looking for a job for yourself, or a self employed owner/driver or are you trying to place multiple machines.

As you had ticked this as resolved I thought Telent was what you were looking for, best to untick it and you may get more replies.

This is not something I personally have much knowledge of but I have a pal who does. If you can explain exactly what you are trying to achieve I will try and help if I can.
