September 26, 2018

Truespeed and co-founder Evan Wienburg have received the accolade in the ‘Social Entrepreneur Category’ for being a fast-growing business that has significantly benefitted the local community.

“At Truespeed, we’re proving that it is feasible, profitable and hugely beneficial to deliver ultrafast broadband to rural communities. Providing the future-proofed infrastructure that enables local communities to thrive is essential for a flourishing digital economy, so we’re honoured that the fruits of our team’s work are being recognised by the Barclay’s Entrepreneurs Awards” 

Evan Wienburg, TrueSpeed CEO

Barclays have recognised TrueSpeed for bringing rural businesses reliable, full-fibre broadband, allowing them to operate in a multitude of online capacities that are essential in running modern-day businesses. By providing a future-proof solution that is capable of handling any broadband demands the future may hold, businesses can rest assured they are no longer being left behind when it comes to operating in the online world.

We’re grateful the award also pays tribute to our community-focused ethos, specifically to our scheme that connects village hubs to free broadband for life, allowing residents from all walks of life to use the internet. Alongside our service that equips residents with an essential part of modern-day life, our investment into communities through donations to local charities, clubs and societies has also played a significant role in the award.

“The Barclays Entrepreneur Awards are a celebration of our clients and an official recognition of their entrepreneurial successes and leadership. This is the third year of the awards and as a regional winner TrueSpeed Communications will go forward to the national stage, which will recognise clients from across the UK”

Matt Brook, Barclays High Growth and Entrepreneur Director
