Future-proofed broadband coming to Belfast

Apr 27, 2023

Residents in Belfast will soon have access to one of the UK’s fastest fibre networks.

The full-fibre broadband infrastructure, which is already being built by Netomnia, will provide access to upload and download speeds of up to 10Gbps, more than 170 times faster than the UK’s average. This capability means that Belfast’s home and business broadband needs will be met for decades to come.

Work, starting in the Balmoral area of Belfast, will enable up to 48,000 premises to benefit from access to this network as part of Netomnia’s investment of up to £14million in the area. These incredibly fast internet speeds will allow residents to download enormous files in seconds, game without lag, work from home and stream content all at the same time, across multiple devices, with no buffering.

Netomnia’s full-fibre broadband infrastructure brings with it a host of big-picture benefits to Belfast, and the UK as a whole. It facilitates more new businesses, it makes it easier for local businesses to expand and compete with big brands, it means better productivity and greater scope for innovation. But beyond cold hard economics, it can also offer better access to healthcare, learning and development opportunities.

Zoltan Kovacs, Managing Director at Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing network operator, says: “Our team has started work in Belfast and we’re proud to be able to boost broadband access in the area.

“We know how empowering excellent internet access can be and are working hard to level the digital playing field. The fibre infrastructure we are building in Belfast is future-proofed, allowing people to take full advantage of all the resources on the internet and the opportunities they offer, unleashing their potential. And it will deliver speeds that enable the people and businesses of Belfast to keep up with technology advances and growing demand for bandwidth.”
