Mar 31, 2022

Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing wholesale fibre broadband operator, has today announced that its full fibre multi-gigabit network is being rolled out in Bamber Bridge, Lancashire.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 42,000 premises in Bamber Bridge as part of an investment of up to £12.6 million in the area, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network, helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy.

Bamber Bridge is located in an up and coming area in the North West. The enhancement of broadband infrastructure in Bamber Bridge will support commercial activity and promote social wellbeing throughout the area.

Netomnia is partnering with infrastructure company makehappen to roll out its broadband network in Bamber Bridge, allowing for a strong speed of deployment and execution capability, using cutting edge optical solutions.

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “We’re looking forward to our rollout expansion in Bamber Bridge, providing residents and businesses with access to ultrafast broadband during a time when so much of our everyday lives is centred around the internet. By laying the foundations for an ultrafast, reliable connection, we’re opening up the possibilities for further employment and prosperity into the local area.”

Netomnia secured £123 million in funding to support its rollout strategy at the end of 2021 and aims to reach one million premises by 2023.

Netomnia makes wholesale connectivity available to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), building the infrastructure for their broadband services. Its network supports symmetrical (equal upload and download speeds) multi-gigabit services up to 10 Gbps (10,000 Mbps) using XGS-PON technology; this means ISPs using Netomnia’s network will be able to offer their customers reliable ultrafast speeds for decades to come.
