New Operator Tiger Fibre Planning UK FTTP Broadband Rollout

A new Solihull-based network builder called Tiger Fibre has emerged with plans to deploy their own gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across homes and businesses in some as yet unspecified parts of the United Kingdom, albeit focusing upon poorly served areas.

The provider popped up as part of a new request for Code Powers from Ofcom, which is something that network operators often do in order to help speed up the deployment of new fibre optic networks and cut costs by reducing the number of licenses needed for street works.

The application itself doesn’t reveal much, except for the fact that Tiger Fibre intend to make at least some use of Openreach’s existing cable ducts and poles in order to run their own fibre (PIA – Physical Infrastructure Access). On top of that they express an ambition to bid on some of the Government’s future Dark Fibre orientated Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN) contracts.

In short, Tiger Fibre appears to be setting itself up as more of a wholesale provider and network builder for FTTP broadband and Dark Fibre services. At the time of writing, we couldn’t find a website for them, although their company was incorporated on 7th April 2020 (here). The only two active Directors listed are named as Laura Catton and Paul Geoffrey Eggleton, neither of which has much history on the Companies House site.

    Now I feel like in Poland. 3 full fibre operators in each region all having their own infrastructure

    This is a general comment and not one about Tiger Fibre specifically, however given the critical use of some of these services, there will need to be some pretty rapid service takeover and restoration processes when some of these operators cease to trade unexpectedly.

    I’m sure some of us remember the days of users being met by the BTW walled garden, but at least the assets could be moved ‘fairly’ easily for service restoration.

    Feels like there is going to be quite some pain for some people in the not to distant future.

      I recon some of smaller providers network infrastructure will be gobbled up by the large providers.
