YouFibre’s FTTP Broadband Goes Live in Barrow and Houghton

UK ISP YouFibre has announced that the first customers can now connect to their new 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in the two towns of Barrow-in-Furness (Cumbria) and Houghton-le-Spring (Tyne and Wear), which has been built by network partner Netomnia.

Netomnia is currently working to make their full fibre broadband ISP network available to 1 million UK premises by 2024 (here and here) and part of that involves spending £12m to cover 40,000 premises in Barrow, as well as £10.5m to reach 35,000 premises in Houghton. Several civil engineering firms, such as Light Source and MAP Group (UK), are supporting this work.

NOTE: Netomnia has so far covered 50,000 premises and £150m has been set aside to help cover 14 initial towns (c.500,000 premises).

Customers in these locations can typically expect to pay from £20 per month on an 18-month term for their unlimited 50Mbps package (£22 post-contract), which rises to just £50 if you want their top 1000Mbps plan. Such low pricing is clearly intended to help grow take-up. A static IP address, Mesh Wi-Fi and phone service are optional (mesh WiFi is included by default with their 1000Mbps plan).

All of YouFibre’s packages include unlimited usage, symmetrical download and upload speeds, a Wi-Fi router, a pledge of no price rises when within contract and 24/7 UK based support. And there is no install fee, activation fee or line rental.
