Jurassic Fibre Build FTTP Broadband to Sherborne in Dorset

Full fibre UK broadband ISP Jurassic Fibre has today announced that one of the first towns in Dorset (England) to benefit from their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network will be Sherborne in the north west of the county, which is home to around 10,000 people.

At present JF is being supported by a £250m commitment from Fern Trading Limited and has an ambition to cover 350,000 premises across South West England (here and here). Until recently most of their early construction had focused upon parts of Devon, although they’ve also started to move into Somerset (here) and Dorset is now beginning to follow.

Communities in and around Exeter and Exmouth were the first to be connected. Since then, they’ve also provided full fibre internet connectivity to homes and businesses in Honiton and Barnstaple; with Bridgwater, Wellington, Taunton and Yeovil currently being built.

Meanwhile, the first premises in Sherborne are expected to become serviceable by the end of 2021. In terms of local competition, the only gigabit-capable rival in the town is Openreach via FTTP, but they’re largely confined to a new build development adjacent to Marston Road.

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

“We’re delighted to announce that we are now extending our award-winning broadband network to Sherborne. The town represents the start of our expansion in to Dorset and will provide Sherborne and its surrounding communities with unrivalled connectivity. When it comes to broadband, Jurassic Fibre doesn’t just offer faster speeds; we provide superior performance, greater reliability and a genuine commitment to customer care. We look forward to announcing further locations over the coming months.”

Customers typically pay from £25 per month (first 2 months free) 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.

    About time.
    How’s this going to work?
    I live in said town on an mid 60’s built estate where all of Openreach’s utilities are underground.
    Openreach’s infrastructure is ducted in the pavement then buried from the pavement to the house.
    In April last year Openreach pulled fibre cables around the estate in their ducting and I was told by an Openreach engineer that an Aggregation Node is in just around the corner.
    Will Jurassic Fibre be able to use Openreach’s ducts or will they dig their own trenches?
    Or will Openreach commission what they laid almost a year ago now there’s competition?
