St Neots residents set to benefit from ultrafast broadband boost

Apr 27, 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 St Neots, in Cambridgeshire.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 18,000 premises in St Neots and the surrounding areas, as part of an investment of up to £5.4 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 Opals Group to roll out its broadband infrastructure in the town, enabling speedy deployment using cutting edge optical solutions. St Neots is Cambridgeshire’s largest and fastest growing town, and Netomnia’s ultrafast, reliable broadband network will help to enhance this growth.

Alan O’Prey, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “We’re excited to be bringing our network to thousands of premises in the town of St Neots. Netomnia’s broadband network will enable residents and businesses to do just about anything online with no disruption providing a seamless, ultrafast connection to all the resources the internet has to offer. It’s also fantastic to be partnering on this project with Opals Group, who share our vision in building the next generation of communication networks.”

Along with its sister company YouFibre, an internet service provider, Netomnia has secured almost £420 million in funding since 2020 to support its rollout strategy 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.
