Netomnia to bring full fibre broadband to East Kilbride

Nov 25, 2021

Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing wholesale fibre broadband operator, is rolling out its multi-gigabit broadband network in East Kilbride, Scotland.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to more 42,000 premises in East Kilbride, the first town in Scotland to have access to Netomnia’s robust and reliable broadband network. During the rollout, Netomnia will primarily be using existing underground ducting and infrastructure, thereby minimising disruption an enabling fast and efficient execution.

Netomnia, which was founded in 2019, is the UK’s fastest growing wholesale fibre broadband operator and is already delivering broadband infrastructure to 17 towns and cities. Netomnia makes wholesale connectivity available to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), building the infrastructure for their broadband services. The company aims to reach one million premises by 2023 and, as of October 2021, had achieved 75,000 premises passed.

Netomnia’s infrastructure allows for symmetrical (equal upload and download speeds) 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 many decades.

Jeremy Chelot, Founder and CEO at Netomnia, commented: “We are delighted to be bringing our ultrafast, multi-gigabit network to Scotland for the first time. Netomnia employs cutting edge optical solutions to deliver consistently high speeds to households and businesses across the UK that have been denied access to the broadband speeds they need.

“Following the past 18 months of lockdowns, it is clear that a reliable, ultrafast network is crucial to every aspect of daily life including work, leisure activities and simply keeping in contact with friends and family. Our industry leading network and ultrafast speeds will help support the local economy and social wellbeing in East Kilbride for many decades to come.”
