Jurassic Fibre Build FTTP Broadband into Bridgwater in Somerset

The historic Somerset (England) market town of Bridgwater, which is home to a population of over 41,000 people, has today become the latest location to be added to ISP Jurassic Fibre’s on-going UK rollout list for their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network.

At present JF, which is being supported by a £250m commitment from Fern Trading Limited, has an ambition to cover 350,000 premises across South West England by the end of 2024 (here and here). So far, the provider has nearly completed 20,000 in their initial deployment phase and they expect to ramp-up further by reaching 50,000 premises “early in the new year“.

The latest town to join this club is Bridgwater and they follow other recent and on-going extensions into new areas in East Devon and Somerset, including Honiton, Yeovil, Taunton, and, most recently, Barnstaple, Wellington, West Hill, and Marsh Green.

However, it is worth noting that JF will face some competition from Openreach in parts of Bridgwater, which has already deployed a fair bit of their slower hybrid fibre G.fast technology and some FTTP.

Michael Maltby, CEO and Founder of Jurassic Fibre, said:

“Receiving the award for best new ISP really is a wonderful tribute to the hard work of our highly skilled and motivated team and represents the great strides we’ve made this year to connect almost 20,000 premises to ultrafast full fibre broadband.

We have seen our service deliver real benefits to the people of East Devon, at a time when fast and reliable broadband has never been more important. We’re now extending these benefits to towns across Somerset.

We are greatly encouraged by the support we have received from local customers and stakeholders, including landowners and councilors, and thank them for sharing our vision and ambition to improve broadband connectivity for those living in rural towns and villages.”

Customers typically pay from £25 per month for an unlimited 30Mbps (10Mbps upload) package on JF and up to £95 for their top 950Mbps (200Mbps upload) tier for a short monthly rolling contract. Standard installation is free, although some “non-standard” installs may cost £250. The operator is also offering their first 2 months of service completely free.

Admittedly their top Gigabit tier might seem more expensive than some rivals at the same speed, but it’s worth remembering that JF are offering a short monthly contract and deploying into areas that tend to be a bit more challenging and thus expensive to reach.

    JF’s first big deployment (Exmouth) had a fair bit of openreach g.fast as well. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if they’re intentionally picking places with g.fast..
