Shropshire-based UK ISP Exascale, which is building a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across parts of the West Midlands, has agreed a long-term strategic partnership with civil engineering firm ClearComm to construct a new diverse ducted Dark Fibre metro network in Telford & Wrekin.

The goal is to create a “high-capacity dark fibre spine throughout the county“, with the first work expected to start in the Trench Lock area this month. After that the new Dark Fibre network will progress towards Leegomery, Apley, Shawbirch and Wellington in the “coming months“.

The new spine should help to support both their business and residential connectivity services.

Thomas Bibb, CEO of Exascale, said:

“We understand building a highly successful, reliable and economically beneficial Gigabit capable full fibre network is crucial to not only residential customers that want a better streaming experience. It is critical that our local businesses can have access to the best infrastructure to enable them to compete on a national or even global scale.

That’s why we’re building a brand new metro spine network which will enable the delivery of large amounts of dark fibre capacity, along with an unrivalled portfolio of competitively priced services available to homes, businesses, data centres and mobile network operators. Our infrastructure will be fit for the needs of today and for many decades to come.

We’ve been working with ClearComm for some time, and I’m very impressed with their ethos and consultative approach. I’m pleased to be embarking on this very exciting journey with ClearComm. Not only will this partnership create a Gigabit capable full fibre network, but our services will also revolutionise how people live and work in Telford & Wrekin. It will also mean we will be creating numerous jobs locally in-house and indirectly through our supply chain partners.”

End.
