Netomnia UK Add Trowbridge and Frome to Gigabit Fibre Rollout

Full fibre builder Netomnia has today announced that the Wiltshire town of Trowbridge and the Somerset town of Frome will be next in line to benefit from their rollout of a new 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network. This aims to cover 1 million UK homes and businesses by the end of 2023.

The operator, which recently secured £123 million of funding to support its rollout strategy (here), has so far covered 90,000 premises (just shy of their 100k target for 2021). The first deployments are currently taking place across a number of towns in England and Wales, including Ashford, Barrow-in-Furness, Boston, Bridgend (Wales), Canterbury, Cheltenham, Durham, Houghton le Spring, Kings Lynn, Peterlee, Spalding, Spennymoor, Stockton, Stroud, and Wisbech.

NOTE: Netomnia’s existing rollout locations reflect a total of over 500,000 premises and c.£150m of investment.

By comparison, the new additions will see a more than 28,000 premises being added to their network coverage in Trowbridge and 34,000 premises in Frome, with street works firm KN Circet conducting the build itself. Nearly £20m is being committed to conduct both builds, which will run fibre via Openreach’s existing ducts and poles wherever possible.

The service itself will then be supplied to consumers via ISP partner YouFibre, which offers unlimited usage, symmetrical speeds, a Wi-Fi router and 24/7 UK based support. And there is no install fee, ‘activation’ fee or additional line rental to pay. Customers typically pay from £22 per month on an 18-month term for their unlimited 50Mbps package, which rises to £50 if you want their top 920Mbps plan.

Alan O’Prey, MD of Netomnia, said:

“We are thrilled to continue our expansion into the Southwest, delivering ultrafast broadband to areas previously forgotten by other broadband providers. It’s getting more and more necessary for reliable, fast broadband, and location should not be a prerequisite to obtaining that. With our experienced and credible management team, development into Trowbridge and Frome will provide households and communities with the latest technology to ensure consistently high speeds and bring significant benefits to the local economy.”

As usual Netomnia won’t be the only gigabit-capable broadband network in town, with Virgin Media having already heavily covered premises in both locations. In addition, Openreach’s FTTP network already covers a few small parts of both locations, although only Trowbridge appears on their current rollout plan for the next few years.

Netomnia estimates that the first properties will go live on its infrastructure in the two towns during Q1 2022.

    I’m suprised they haven’t got more ISPs on the Netomnia network, I’m sure TalkTalk and others would be happy to join.

      For all intents and purposes they are the same company. As such I don’t believe they’re looking for partners

    Sad to see Netomnia covering areas with VM. In an interview you did with the CEO a while back they said they where looking for forgotten towns to cover. I contacted the email as suggested/provided by the CEO as requested at the time (in response to my comment) and never got a response. I know VM is low down on the list of options but when you have towns with nothing but FTTC its frustrating (and yes I would love to have the option of VM even if its less reliable.)

    Awesome. I live in Trowbridge. This is a highly unusual thing to happen to the town/county as we’re generally regarded as the red headed step child to them he rest of the country.

  4. Eci sufferer says:

    Get in. Finally. I live in Frome. There is a huge vm presence but our estate is not connected to vm network. Not a lot of fttp here either. Hope this good news for Frome. Stuck on eci cab too..

  5. Eci sufferer says:

    Even better news. Speaking to netomnia today they have said the estate I live on will be included in their roll out plans….brilliant.
