ISP Voneus Upgrade Bedfordshire Village of Dunton to FTTP

Rural UK ISP Voneus, which is supported by Macquarie Capital, have begun upgrading their first village in Bedfordshire – Dunton – to their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network, which will replace their existing Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) service in the area.

The provider, which currently holds a “near term” target to connect 100,000 rural UK homes to their new full fibre network (here), first deployed a 100Mbps capable wireless service in Dunton all the way back in 2016 (here). But as part of their upgrade work, they’re also moving many of their existing communities to FTTP and Dunton is one of the first to benefit in Bedfordshire.

NOTE: Dunton is home to a population of around 700.

Interestingly, Voneus’ announcement mentions that they’re looking to connect 6,000 homes by the summer of 2022 “as part of ‘phase two’ of their Dunton plan,” which doesn’t make much sense given that the village is only home to a population of c.700. We suspect that this is actually a reference to their wider UK FTTP rollout.

Matt Appleton, Voneus founder, said:

“The installation in Dunton is exciting, not only for us as it is the first connection of ours in Bedfordshire to go live, but also for the village as it means they can look forward with a future-proofed broadband infrastructure. Our aim is to take rural communities that have been left behind on a path from poor broadband to gigabit-capable connectivity, similar to those enjoyed in urban areas.”

Sadly, Voneus hide the details of their FTTP broadband packages from public view (you have to make a manual request via the phone to find out), so we’re presently unable to reflect what customers can expect to get for their money and may soon be unable to list them in our database unless that changes.

    I hope they come down the road to Bedford too at some point. 170,000 people .. no fibre.

    1. Alex says:

      Whilst not fibre, Virgin Media already cover much of Bedford. Bedford isn’t at all rural like Dunton is.

  2. Josh Welby says:

    Wyboston, Bedford is a small Village
    and it is very much Rural
    with just a BT service
    and no Virgin service
    unlike in urban areas
    which get a Virgin service
