G.Network Deal Builds FTTP Broadband to Bloomsbury in London

UK ISP G.Network has reached a new agreement with the Bedford Estates in central London, which will see their 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network being extended to cover much more of Bloomsbury’s (WC1) local residents and businesses “over the coming months.”

The provider, which is supported by roughly £65m of private investment (here) and partly owned by Luxembourg-based Cube Infrastructure Managers, has been busy deploying their FTTP network across parts of London since  2018/19. Currently, they appear to have built enough to cover more than 100,000 premises (their initial build target is 120,000 premises) and their work is on-going.

At present some of those within the aforementioned 30 acre estate can already access G.Network’s service, but thanks to the new partnership this number is set to increase until “the entire” Bedford Estate in Bloomsbury is covered.

The Bedford Estates itself tends to comprise 200 properties containing over 825,000 square feet of office and educational accommodation, as well as 100,000 square feet of retail space, over 1,000 hotel bedrooms, more than 550 flats and various public garden squares.

To date, G.Network connections are locally available in:

Bloomsbury Place

Bloomsbury Square

Bedford Place

Montague Street

Store Street

Bedford Square

Adeline Place

Residential packages tend to start from £28 inc. VAT per month (£22 on a special offer) for an unlimited 150Mbps (50Mbps upload) service, which includes a free wireless router and connection. The cost rises to £57 per month for their top 900Mbps symmetric tier (£48 on a special offer), available on a 12 or 24 month contract term.

David Sangster, Managing Director of G.Network, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with The Bedford Estates to upgrade connectivity for organisations and families alike. Much of central London struggles with both broadband speed and reliability, and we are proud to be delivering the solution to this.”

Louis Braham, The Bedford Estates Asset Manager, said:

“We have been working closely with G.Network over the last two years to install fibre connectivity throughout our Estate. Occupiers across Bloomsbury are now starting to benefit from that investment.”

The provider was earlier this year also reported to be on the hunt for an investment boost of around £200m (possibly via the sale of new shares and private debt markets) in order to accelerate their future roll-out plans beyond 120,000 premises (here), although we’re still awaiting the outcome of that effort.

    Really great to see more Altnets! Could G.Network find themselves being squeezed out when OpenReach decide to roll out their FTTP?

    Good value for a 150/50 at £28 (£22) – maybe the price itself will do all the talking.

      I wish there was some news on Openreach coming with FTTP to Central London.

    I wish G.network would connect my street.. the did the neighbouring street over 12 months ago in NW1, but then nothing….

    1. Avatar Draak says:

      Contact them and they should let you know approximate date.

      Even if they did your road, it’s still a long unknown wait. They did my street in Jan, and still to do this day, they don’t know when they’ll be able to connect me.
