ISP Trooli Covers 26,000 UK Premises with FTTP Broadband

Thursday, June 4th, 2020 (3:30 pm) - Score 1,759

Fibre optic UK ISP Trooli (CallFlow), which has spent the past year quietly deploying a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband service across parts of Kent and Hampshire, have announced that their network has now built 200km of optical fibre to cover 26,000 premises (i.e. completed on target).

The provider, which earlier this year gained a further £5m of funding via a senior facility agreement with NatWest Bank (here) and is also being supported by €30m from the Connecting Europe Broadband Fund (here), currently aims to continue their roll-out in order to reach more than 45,000 premises by the end of 2020, then 150,000 by the middle of 2022 and 500,000 in 2025.

Locations where the new service has gone live include Kings Hill, West Malling, Leybourne Chase, West Peckham, Paddock Wood, Coxheath, Wateringbury, Nestlestead, Teston, East Peckham, Longfield, New Barn, Istead Rise, Loose, Boughton Monchelsea, Pembury, Sissinghurst, Cranbrook, Meopham, Sole Street and Hawkinge.

Work has also begun on connecting Headcorn, Staplehurst, Marden, New Romney, Dymchurch, Lydd and Greatstone.

Andy Conibere, CEO of Trooli, said:

“We are 100% focused on delivering our ultrafast broadband service to rural communities in Kent and ensuring they enjoy the benefits of being able to access greatly enhanced internet speeds.

Thanks to the hard work of everyone here at Trooli, we are continuing to meet our business plan targets: our engineers are building and commissioning our network on schedule; we have grown to nearly 90 people, with 17 new staff joining in the last two months alone; and we are signing up new customers every day.

Although the coronavirus crisis has thrown up challenges, the 21st century infrastructure we are installing is considered essential for the well-being of the economy, which has allowed our work to continue uninterrupted. And with so many people now spending more time at home we have seen an increase in customer demand as businesses and residents realise the huge advantages offered by a great broadband service.”

Trooli’s broadband packages tend to cost from £50 inc. VAT per month for an unlimited 300Mbps service and this rises to £80 for 900Mbps+ (one-off installation charges range from £80 for self-install to £120 for a Trooli install). However they’ll still need to raise significantly more investment to achieve the ambition of 500,000 premises, but so far the progress has been good.

    This sounds like a significant achievement from a small company. How does the cost of this rollout compare with the cost of the established FTTP firms? Thinking in terms of price per property passed or per Km etc?

    Does anyone know if they dug 600mm deep, 100mm wide, or have they used microfibre under the pavement?

    There is also money to be made providing fibre to mobile cellsites, council offices, schools and businesses that can ditch their humongous leased line bills with incumbent telcos. I hope they have considered this for making a bit of extra profit.

      They are using BT’s ducts and poles.

      Call Flow have been around the South East for a long while with wireless and sub loop unbundling stuff.

      They are going to need to cut prices to get any volume.

      Their prices might be higher than some but at least they offer much more upload speed compared to BT 300mbps vs 115mbps and I know which one I would go for.
      They also offer simmetrical business packages and my mate just ordered their guaranteed 500/500 option.
