Viberoptix smashes 100th employee mark to bring full fibre broadband to NI

  • Northern Ireland's newest fibre infrastructure firm, Viberoptix has recruited more than 100 employees in less than a year since the company was formed.

    Just under four months after the company launched a major recruitment drive, it has tripled its workforce, recently welcoming its 125th member to the team.

    Due to this influx in growth, Viberoptix moved to larger premises in Coalisland, Co Tyrone earlier this month.

    Managing Director Naomhan McCrory said: “Full fibre has finally been recognised as the key to unlocking digital imbalance in Northern Ireland and demand for fibre networks is growing rapidly.

    "The pandemic has accelerated the need for effective, high speed broadband, as more and more people are now working, schooling and staying connected with friends and family from home. Throughout this challenging period, our teams have continued to work to install this vital service to ensure home and business owners have access to full fibre networks.

    “We build the network infrastructure to enable full fibre broadband providers to reach their customers, so the demand for our services has increased and our team has grown exponentially. In bringing the fastest broadband to your home, we’ve had to expand and grow our expert team at a rapid rate.

    “This is a really exciting time for Viberoptix, particularly because we are creating new jobs for local people in the areas in which we operate - some who had been made redundant due to the pandemic.”

    The company’s growth is also connected to the recent awarding of Project Stratum to full fibre broadband provider, Fibrus, as Viberoptix is the main provider of fibre build resources for their network.

    Along with their partners Charles Brand, they said they "are building the key infrastructure to connect rural Northern Ireland."

    Naomhan continued: “We’re proud to play a leading part in this sector, with people who are as passionate about digital transformation. Connectivity will soon be revolutionised for rural and regional parts of Northern Ireland and the Viberoptix team is delighted to be part of that journey.”

    Viberoptix continues to recruit Infrastructure & Fibre Engineers, Project Managers, Accountants and various other roles, with full training provided on appointment. For more information, visit
