TrueSpeed’s 150Mbps FTTP Broadband Reaches More Somerset Villages

Thursday, October 13th, 2016 (8:53 am) - Score 1,081

Fibre optic ISP TrueSpeed Communications has confirmed that their roll-out of a symmetric 150Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in the rural Chew Valley area of North East Somerset (England) is now in the process of reaching three more local communities.

Earlier this year the provider succeeded in connecting their first village of Priston and since then they’ve been working on a demand-led expansion plan to potentially reach Compton Dando, Woolard, Publow, Pensford, Stanton Drew, Stanton Wick, Chew Magna, Chew Stoke and Bishop Sutton.

The good news is that the network has recently begun to connect residents of Compton Dando and further progress was made this week after TrueSpeed confirmed that they had now received enough interest from premises in Stanton Drew and Stanton Wick, with the roll-out set to begin imminently.

TrueSpeed are also members of the local voucher scheme, which means that related residents could benefit from a voucher worth up to £500 in order to help them get the service installed (details).

Evan Wienburg, CEO of TrueSpeed, said:

“I am really excited to announce that we have reached critical mass for the villages of Stanton Drew & Stanton Wick, and are now taking the last, vital steps to connect [them]!

The next steps in the process are to ensure considerations are met with local landowners and the planning authorities at the council to deliver pure fibre into each and every home and business.

You will see us out and about shortly, as I want work to get underway as soon as possible.”

Subscribers typically pay from £47.50 per month for an unlimited 100Mbps package with a “phone line included“, although they’ve recently added a new 150Mbps Home Office package that also includes “2 phone lines” for £69.50 per month.

Otherwise the roll-out appears to be holding to TrueSpeed’s long-term deployment plan (below), although this does depend upon local homes and businesses expressing an interest first.

Some of the areas being covered can already order a Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC VDSL2) service over BTOpenreach’s network, although this doesn’t always deliver “superfast” speeds to related communities (e.g. Priston could only get around 6-10Mbps).
