Netomnia announces full fibre broadband rollout in Darlington

Mar 1, 2022

Netomnia, the UK’s fastest-growing wholesale fibre broadband operator, has today announced that its full fibre multi-gigabit network is being rolled out in Darlington, in County Durham. Netomnia will be investing up to £14 million in the rollout, targeting 46,000 premises.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure in Darlington to around 46,000 premises in Darlington as part of an investment of up to £14 million in the area, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network, helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy.

The company is partnering with Map Group to roll out its broadband infrastructure in Darlington, enabling speedy deployment using cutting edge optical solutions.

Famous for its associations with the birth of the modern railway, Netomnia’s network will support Darlington’s economic and social development and ensure it stays ahead in the digital speed race for generations to come.

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “We are very excited to announce we will be providing access to our ultrafast broadband infrastructure in Darlington targeting 46,000 premises. We are scaling rapidly to ensure everyone has equal access to a reliable and fast internet with more and more people working from home, allowing for multiple devices to use the internet at once with our download speeds at second to none.”

Netomnia secured £123 million in funding to support its rollout strategy at the end of 2021 and aims to reach one million premises by 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.
