Manchester next city set to benefit from Netomnia’s full fibre broadband rollout

Nov 8, 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 Manchester, as part of an initial investment of up to £15.9 million in the area.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 53,000 premises in the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester, as part of an initial phase of work, delivering access to its ultrafast and reliable broadband network, helping to future proof and diversify the local economy.

The company is partnering with O’Connor Utilities to roll out its fibre infrastructure in Manchester, allowing for a strong speed of deployment and execution capability, using cutting edge optical solutions.

Zoltan Kovacs, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “We’re really proud to be bringing our fibre infrastructure to Manchester. Our full fibre network delivers high speed broadband capability directly to each property which means residents will be able to access broadband speeds of up to 10Gbps, allowing them to stream on multiple devices at once and do just about anything online seamlessly.”

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.
