Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing wholesale fibre broadband operator, has announced that its full fibre multi-gigabit network now passes 210,000 premises across the UK, all of which are ready for service. The company has also updated its rollout map of planned locations up until the end of 2023.
The company is currently rolling out full fibre infrastructure in 48 exchange areas across England, Scotland and Wales and will soon be starting its first rollout in Northern Ireland, in a bid to become the first alt-net with network present in all four countries in the UK.
Along with Internet Service Provider, YouFibre, Netomnia has secured £418 million in funding since 2020 to support its rollout strategy, including significant investment of £295 million led by Digital Bridge, marking their first investment in fibre infrastructure in Europe.
Jeremy Chelot, Chief Executive Officer at Netomnia, commented: “Passing 210,000 premises in under two years is an unprecedented achievement for a company of our size. We are currently operating at a build rate of 30,000 premises per month, meaning we are on track to meet our one million premises passed target and to ultimately accelerate the UK’s transition to full fibre.
“All of this is made possible with the hard work of our small but brilliant team of 100 people and marks an exciting step forward as we continue to scale rapidly, rolling out full fibre broadband across the UK. Netomnia’s network will ensure multi-gigabit connectivity for decades to come.”
Netomnia makes wholesale connectivity available to internet service providers (ISPs), building the infrastructure for their broadband services. Its broadband infrastructure supports symmetrical (equal upload and download speeds) multi-gigabit services up to 10 Gbps using XGS-PON technology; this means ISPs using Netomnia’s network will be able to offer their customers reliable ultrafast speeds for years to come.
