Fibrus in £14m FTTP Rollout for the Causeway Coast and Glens

Northern Ireland focused ISP Fibrus looks set to complement their expected Project Stratum contract win (here) by pumping £14m into deploying their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across premises (homes and businesses) in the Causeway Coast and Glens area.

The Infracapital owned provider started their original £85m+ commercial roll-out last year in County Down, which formed part of their longer-term plan to cover 145,000 premises by around 2024 (here). More recently they’ve also expanded into the neighbouring region of Mid Ulster (here) and today’s announcement will see them build into parts of counties Antrim and Londonderry.

NOTE: Fibrus recently committed to help ensure that 100% of homes in Northern Ireland can access FTTP services by the end of 2025 (here).

The latest investment of £14m will see their “full fibre” broadband network being extended into locations such as Ballycastle, Portstewart and Portrush.

Craig Adair, Head of Network Delivery at Fibrus, said:

“We’re really excited to be investing over £14 million and bringing Fibrus hyperfast broadband to the Causeway Coast. This full-fibre service is going to be revolutionary for the area, providing families and businesses with something they have never been able to access before. This kind of connectivity is crucial for people living and working in rural communities now more than ever.

In fact, with more and more local businesses and employees working from home, reliable, high speed connectivity has become an essential utility, as important as electricity and water.”

Customers typically pay from £39.99 per month (currently discounted to £19.99 for the first 12 months of a 24-month term) for an unlimited 100Mbps package with a router and free installation (it’s only free with a government gigabit voucher), which rises to £84.99 per month (discounted to £49.99) for their top 900Mbps+ tier.

    Makes sense to overbuild since Openreach installed Fibre (actual fibre optic, not the useless not fibre, fibre) all over the area a few months ago.
    Commerically viabile, unlike rural.
    I guess urban and already superfast areas will be where most the project stratum money will go too with no checks and balances to make sure it doesn’t go in that direction.

    Not true. If you bothered to look up the relevant information, you’d find it is primarily for rural areas.
