Netomnia UK Add Wakefield and Pontefract to Gigabit Fibre Plan

Netomnia, which is busy deploying a 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network to cover 1 million UK premises by the end of 2023 (here), has today officially announced that they’ve added Wakefield and Pontefract in West Yorkshire to their rollout plans.

At present the operator, which recently secured £123m of funding (here), has so far covered around 90,000 premises, and they continue to announce new locations. In keeping with that, they’ve now appointed civil engineering firm MAP Group to support their rollout to more than 71,000 premises in Wakefield and 48,000 premises in Pontefract. Sadly, no completion date has been given for this.

The move into Wakefield shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise because we already mentioned it as part of this week’s related news, which saw CityFibre begin their deployment phase in the same location (here). Both Virgin Media and Openreach are also playing in the same waters.

Alan O’Prey, MD of Netomnia, said:

“We are excited to rollout our ultrafast broadband infrastructure to residents and businesses in Wakefield and Pontefract. We understand how important it is for growing towns and cities to have access to reliable and fast internet. At Netomnia we are committed to closing the digital divide through our robust, reliable network with industry leading speeds, allowing for towns and cities like Wakefield and Pontefract to prosper.”

The service itself is typically supplied to consumers via UK ISP partner YouFibre, which offers unlimited usage, symmetrical speeds, a Wi-Fi router, free installation and 24/7 UK based support. Customers then pay from £22 per month on an 18-month term for their unlimited 50Mbps package, which rises to £40 if you want their top 900Mbps plan. At present, there’s also a special offer that gives the first 3 months of service for free.

    They have a shed load of, as far as I am aware, unannounced areas on their website-

    https://www.netomnia.com/rollout

    If they have previously been announced, I certainly missed it!

    why has nobody up north started an ISP called t’internet yet?

    giant missed opportunity.

  3. Danny says:

    I don’t get that Normanton is being missed out when castleford, pontefract and Wakefield are on the roll out plans when it is literally in the middle of those three. If the 3 points were a triangle Normanton would be its centre.

    1. internetman says:

      It is not missed, simply covered by one of the surrounding exchanges 😉

    2. Danny says:

      I hope so.

    Overbuild!
    Investors are gonna lose money.

  5. JJ says:

    Is there really 71k prems to go at in Wakefield?

    1. Danny says:

      Wakefield, Normanton, Castleford, Pontefract, Featherstone, South Elmsall, Upton, Ossett there’s more too also if you go by Wakefields WF postcode you have Outwood, Rothwell etc. So probably have over 71k also Wakefield I believe is one of the biggest builders of homes for a city currently in the UK.

    2. anonymous says:

      The city itself has a population of a bit over 100,000, JJ. The announcement I imagine covers a bit more than just the city.

      It won’t be by postcode. Bits of Leeds have Wakefield postcodes.

      Wakefield exchange covers about 30,000 premises. Horbury, Ossett and others make up the difference as smaller settlements directly attached to the city. Between Wakefield city and Horbury there’s not even a stretch of road.

      Best plan as far as Normanton goes is to ask Netomnia whether it’s in the Wakefield announcement or not.
