Falkirk set to benefit from Netomnia ultrafast broadband rollout

Apr 27, 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 Falkirk, in Scotland as part of a £21 million investment in the local area.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 70,000 premises in Falkirk and the surrounding areas, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network, helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy.

The company will be rolling out its digital infrastructure in the town using cutting edge optical solutions to enable speedy deployment. Its latest announcement builds on its existing presence in Scotland, providing up to 70,000 premises in Hamilton and 42,000 premises in East Kilbride with access to its ultrafast broadband network.

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “It’s been fantastic to see residents and local businesses in Scotland already benefiting from access to our ultrafast and reliable infrastructure and we look forward to welcoming many more in Falkirk. Our full fibre broadband can deliver consistently high speeds and ensure there is no disruption when multiple users are streaming at once, providing a robust network that will support growth and prosperity across the region.”

Along with its sister company YouFibre, an internet service provider, Netomnia has secured almost £420 million in funding since 2020 to support its rollout strategy 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.
