Runfibre's journey towards receiving this esteemed award began in 2022 when the company made a solemn pledge to support the armed forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. This covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated with fairness and respect, and that they enjoy the same access to services and opportunities as anyone else.
Fast forward to 2023, and Runfibre's unwavering dedication to this pledge has resulted in being honoured with the Silver Award, a testament to their commitment and efforts in supporting those who serve their country.
Dave Swanston, CEO of Runfibre, expressed his gratitude and pride in achieving this milestone: "It's a tremendous honour for us to receive the Armed Forces Covenant Silver Award. At Runfibre, we hold a deep appreciation for the sacrifices made by the armed forces and their families. We believe that access to high-quality internet should be universal and that no one's digital life should be defined by their postcode. We are committed to ensuring that veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their families receive the support they deserve, and this award validates our ongoing commitment."
