Liverpool set to benefit from Netomnia ultrafast broadband boost

May 19, 2022

Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing wholesale fibre broadband operator, has announced that its full fibre multi-gigabit network is beginning its roll out in Liverpool, as part of an investment of up to £39 million in the area. This marks the company’s first network build in a major city.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 130,000 premises in Liverpool as part of an initial phase of work, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network, helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy.

The company is partnering with MJ Quinn to roll out its broadband infrastructure in Liverpool, enabling speedy deployment using cutting edge optical solutions. The addition of an ultrafast and reliable network will ensure Liverpool is a leader in the digital revolution, providing a major boost for the local economy, along with the environmental benefits that come with a full fibre network.

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “I'm delighted to be bringing our network to Liverpool in our first move into a major UK city. This is a particularly special project for me as Liverpool is my home and it’s a true pleasure for us to be able to bring ultrafast, reliable broadband access to thousands of homes and businesses in the area. At Netomnia we’re incredibly passionate about helping people realise their potential by giving them the seamless, ultrafast connection to all the resources the internet has to offer."

Along with its sister company YouFibre, an internet service provider, Netomnia has secured £418 million in funding since 2020 to support its rollout strategy and aims to reach one million premises in 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.
