BT have added 1,800 FIAT Doblò Cargo Maxi vans to its vehicle fleet to spearhead the telecommunications company’s fitting of high-speed fibre optic broadband around the UK.
Sebastiano Federigo, Head of Brand at FIAT Professional UK, said: “We are delighted that Openreach has chosen FIAT Professional UK to supply the vehicles […] It highlights not only the quality, efficiency and versatility of our award-winning vans but also the level of support and peace-of-mind we are able to offer even the largest and most exacting fleets in the UK.”
The chief factors in BT choosing to use the FIAT vans was due to their reliability, low running costs, manoeuvrability, payload, comfort and ease of operation, and comes off the back of the van recently being awarded the prestigious ‘Fleet Van of the Year’ accolade at the 2014 Motor Transport Awards.
