TrueSpeed Connect First NE Somerset Village to 100Mb FTTP Broadband

Friday, Apr 15th, 2016 (7:55 am) - Score 3,711

After one month of muddy digging TrueSpeed Communications has finally announced that they’ve connected their first North East Somerset (England) customer to a new 100Mbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in the rural village of Priston.

The village of Priston is home to around 230 people (80+ homes and businesses) and resides just 4 miles south west of Bath, which is where the new network starts. Apparently most of the local properties have already signed-up to take the service and the first have just gone live, with more to follow over the next few weeks.

The network deployment is demand-led (i.e. it goes where there is most interest) and if all goes well then the ISP hopes to expand further into the Chew Valley area and possibly even reaching parts of rural Wiltshire. Indeed TrueSpeed are already making plans to connect communities such as Chew Stoke and Bishop Sutton, which could happen as soon as this summer.

The ISP offers a number of packages for businesses and home users, although the main residential product offers 100Mbps (symmetrical) for £47.50 per month (includes a phone service). It’s worth pointing out that some of the area can already order a Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC VDSL2) service over BTOpenreach’s network, although this only tends to deliver woefully slow speeds of around 6-10Mbps in Priston.
