Netomnia announces full fibre broadband rollout in Gravesend

Feb 16, 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 Gravesend, in Kent as part of a £15 million investment in the area.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 51,000 premises in Gravesend, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network, helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy.

The company is partnering with GNS Communications to roll out its broadband infrastructure in Gravesend, enabling speedy deployment using cutting edge optical solutions.

Gravesend’s geographical situation has given it strategic importance in the history of South East England, and with easy access to full fibre broadband this will only increase its competitiveness to attract further businesses to the area, all with environmental benefits.

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “We are delighted to rollout our ultrafast broadband infrastructure to thousands of residents and businesses in Gravesend, at a time when access to reliable and fast internet access is more important than ever.

"The download speeds made possible by our infrastructure are second to none, and with Kent proudly being host to several major businesses, we hope our investment in the area will provide new opportunities to enhance its renowned business sectors, whilst providing residents with access to ultrafast broadband speeds.”

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.
