People’s Fibre Set to Rollout FTTP Broadband in North Wales

Feedback from readers has enabled us to confirm that the new UK full fibre ISP People’s Fibre, which has so far declined to say precisely where they intend to roll-out their new 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network, will begin one of their first deployments in North Wales.

The ISP first popped up on our radar earlier this month (here), although we still know very little about them except that the extended group claims to have “been deploying full fibre in Sweden for the last 10 years” and proposes to “serve predominantly homes and small businesses in areas where FTTP is non-existent or poor.” Sadly they’ve remained tight lipped over their future roll-out plan.

Despite this ISPreview has now received feedback from five different readers who appear to have been canvassed (leaflet drops) by the ISP over the past couple of months. All of them appear to be in North Wales and are situated at different locations both within and around Deeside in North Wales. Most of the feedback has come from those within the Connah’s Quay area.

The leaflets themselves don’t say much but include a special offer on their symmetric speed 300Mbps and 900Mbps packages (12 month term), which have been reduced to £20 (down from £40) and £30 (down from £60) per month respectively (the offer is said to only be available until 31st January 2020). The usual £50 one-off connection fee is free connection with a gigabit voucher.

A quick check of some local postcodes confirms the above and also reveals that they will target the Shotton area of Deeside too, but not Mancot, which makes it sound like a town-wide deployment. However it doesn’t look as if they’ll be targeting the Deeside industrial area over the River Dee to the north.

The move appears to fit in with their stated objective since at present their only ultrafast broadband rival in the area seems to be Openreach (BT), which has a few patches of their own FTTP (not much) and some bigger areas of the deeply inferior hybrid fibre G.fast technology. However at present we could find no indication of any roll-out timescale for the area or even any related street works.

One other positive element of this news is that it means another alternative network ISP will enter the full fibre market in Wales, which hasn’t really had much of an altnet selection on that front before. Special credits to Michael, Jon and Loyd for helping us to identify the build area.

    I tell you what that is a tough sell in those areas. I’ll be following any anecdotal evidence of good take-up with with interest. Good luck to em.

    I signed up with them about 2 weeks ago. They have said that the rollout will begin around march and that my street will be connected around the end of march.
