Netomnia, the full fibre network operator targeting under-served towns and cities across the UK, is delighted to announce that it has been named “Altnet Operator of the Year” at the Broadband World Forum Awards on 13 October 2021. Netomnia was founded in 2019 by Jeremy Chelot, former CEO of Community Fibre, and plans to deliver multi-gigabit broadband to one million premises across the UK by 2024. Netomnia is building out a robust, reliable network with industry leading speeds. Working in partnership with major UK construction companies, Netomnia has a lean and scalable operating model that enables it to achieve swift deployment using cutting edge optical solutions.

Netomnia’s infrastructure 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.

Jeremy Chelot, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Netomnia commented:

“We are so proud to be named “Altnet Operator of the Year” at the Broadband World Forum Awards. It has been an incredible start to our team’s journey, full of challenges, which even included a global pandemic.

“This award is testament to what I already knew – that we have an impressive collection of highly talented people bringing their A-game every day for the last 18 months to make Netomnia one of the most exciting and rapidly-scaling network operators today. It’s about time the world knew it, as this is only the beginning.”
