Stafford set to benefit from ultrafast broadband rollout

Nov 18, 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 Stafford, in the West Midlands as part of an investment of up to £11.1 million in the area. Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 37,000 premises in Stafford, delivering access to its robust and reliable broadband network and helping to future-proof and diversify the local economy. 

Zoltan Kovacs, Managing Director at Netomnia, commented: “We are proud to be rolling out our fibre infrastructure in Stafford. We believe everyone should have access to a broadband network that will support them in their day-to-day lives. Residents and businesses will soon be able to download enormous files in seconds, work and study from home without network interruptions and have multiple people streaming HD content simultaneously without buffering.”

Along with YouFibre, an internet service provider, Netomnia has secured £418 million in funding since 2020 to support its rollout strategy. It recently announced its full fibre multi-gigabit network now passes 300,000 premises across the UK, all of which are ready for service.

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.
