Londonderry to receive ultrafast broadband boost as Netomnia becomes first alt-net to build in all four UK countries

Oct 7, 2022

Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing wholesale fibre broadband operator, has today announced that its full fibre multi-gigabit network has commenced its rollout in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, making Netomnia the first alt-net with presence in all four countries in the United Kingdom.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 43,000 premises in Londonderry in an investment of up £12.9 million in the area, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network and helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy.

Netomnia’s latest investment means its ultrafast broadband network is now live in 35 town and cities across the UK and is actively building in 60 towns and cities. Netomnia’s network now passes 265,000 premises, all of which are ready for service.

Jeremy Chelot, Chief Executive Officer at Netomnia, commented: “We’re thrilled to be bringing our network to Northern Ireland and we can’t wait for residents and businesses in Londonderry to benefit from access to broadband speeds of up 10Gps. This will allow people to surf the internet with ease, stream content through multiple services simultaneously and work from home without interruption.”

Along with YouFibre, an internet service provider, Netomnia has secured £418 million in funding since 2020 to support its rollout strategy.

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.
