Community-Centric Local Broadband Operator, Lightning Fibre, confirms Platinum Sponsorship hat-trick for hugely popular Eastbourne Carnival


Honouring a recent pledge to continue to support the local community, Lightning Fibre broadband has confirmed it will be a platinum sponsor for the third consecutive year of Eastbourne Carnival (to be held on Saturday 25th May).


The firm, based in Polegate, recently confirmed new ownership, and has reaffirmed its community focus. It’s meeting that commitment by supporting a range of popular events across East Sussex throughout the year. More event sponsorship will be announced soon.


Rob Reaks, Sales and Marketing Director commented, “Our ethos is that, as a local business, we should support our local communities. We have done that for many years now and we are pleased to pledge our support to this extremely popular, inclusive and well produced event. Community events rely heavily on the support of local businesses, and we’re proud to play our part.”


Mina O’Brien, Chair of the Eastbourne Carnival CIC, added, “We are delighted to have Lightning Fibre back for the third year as our Platinum Sponsors. Business sponsorship is critical to the success of this popular community event, so we very much appreciate Lightning Fibre’s ongoing support.”


With one of the best ‘social tariffs’ (for households on means tested benefits) and a robust Customer Charter to support vulnerable customers, the firm ranks digital inclusion highly on its agenda, as the Full Fibre roll out continues across the UK.


Lightning Fibre was named the UK’s Best Consumer ISP (with fewer than 50,000 customers) at the ISPA Awards in Nov 2023.


Full Fibre is more reliable and faster than out-dated copper wire networks, and is also a greener communication technology. With prices from £24 per month, fixed for two years, it’s also one of the most competitively priced Broadband services available.
