TrueSpeed Target Next Rural South West Communities for FTTP Broadband

TrueSpeed Communications, which recently secured £75m of new investment (here) and is busy rolling out an FTTP ultrafast broadband network to rural areas in South West England (UK), has named some of the next areas that are likely to benefit from their future build phase.

So far the provider has already deployed into the villages of Priston, Compton Dando, Stanton Drew and Stanton Wick (Chew Valley). On top of that they’ve now confirmed that several additional communities are “incredibly close” to reaching the 30% sign-up threshold required in order for their build phase to commence.

Hopefully this means that homes and businesses in the area should soon be able to access package speeds of up to 200Mbps (250Mbps on the Home Office tier) and faster tiers are available for business connections. The above communities should also be able be able to benefit from a free installation offer (enter code: INSTALL0034).

Evan Wienburg, TrueSpeed CEO, said:

“Having signed up to TrueSpeed, you have helped secure the digital future of your community, well done! To all the champions that have worked tirelessly in support, a whole-hearted thank you, your belief and vision will always be preserved by the presence of a brilliant ultrafast full-fibre infrastructure in your village.”

We note how some of the areas that TrueSpeed is connecting or targeting have already been reached by slower FTTC services and in the future a few may also overlap with state aid supported deployments from rival FTTP operators, such as Gigaclear (Connecting Devon and Somerset).

A quick look at the village of Litton shows that different operators appear to be targeting different parts, so currently it’s quite difficult to tell how much practical overbuild may eventually exist at completion or if they’re all keeping some separation. TrueSpeed eventually hopes to cater for around 75,000 premises in the UK, although it’s unclear how long it will take them to reach that aspiration.
