Wednesbury and Walsall set to benefit from Netomnia's 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 Wednesbury and Walsall in the West Midlands in a combined investment of over £53 million in the area.

Netomnia will provide Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure to around 181,000 premises across both towns, 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’re proud to be building on our existing presence in the West Midlands and providing an optimal full fibre network that will benefit residents and businesses for decades to come. By rapidly scaling our infrastructure across the UK, we’re making sure that no town or city is under-served in the possibilities that full fibre provides.”

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.
