ISP Truespeed Build Full Fibre Broadband to Saltford in Somerset

Rural full fibre UK ISP TrueSpeed, which is backed by an investment of £75m from Aviva Investors and has been deploying a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across Somerset in South West England for the past few years, appears to now be extending into the large village of Saltford.

The provider, which currently hopes to cover 75,000 premises by the end of 2021 and holds an aspiration of reaching 200,000 by 2025 (i.e. demand-led deployment where 30% of a community needs to sign-up), doesn’t often make announcements about their deployments (the last one was for the tiny city of Wells at the end of 2019 – here) but they’ve nevertheless continued to reach many rural Somerset communities.

The next to benefit looks to be the large village of Saltford that resides c.2km to the South East of Keynsham. The village itself is home to a sizeable population of over 4,000 and so represents quite a significant target for the operator. Truespeed now appear to be building up toward the village along Bristol Road from Corston to the south and will then fan out toward local homes and businesses.

Once live local residents will be able to order a symmetrical 200Mbps (250Mbps for Home Workers) speed package with unlimited usage, an 18 month contract term, wireless router, VoIP phone service and free installation (Government vouchers allowing) that costs from £47.50 per month.

Last year they did also talk about offering a “dedicated” 10Gbps link to every individual customer, which was due to launch by the end of 2019, but that has yet to materialise (here). Meanwhile 10Gbps is already possible as a bespoke business solution. By the looks of it their deployment will first target local businesses in Saltford.

  1. The Facts says:

    Saltford is fully covered by Virgin Mediam

    1. Mark Jackson says:

      Yep, now they’ll have a second choice of ultrafast broadband provider.

    2. Jon Godfrey says:

      I wouldn’t say fully covered. Main areas are. Virgin services east of Bristol have been very poor of late. There’s a WhatsApp group due to frequent dropouts.

  2. The Facts says:

    Is a 30% signup required?

    1. Optical says:

      Yes with Truespeed before any work will commence.
