Netomnia Adds Tewkesbury to UK FTTP Broadband Rollout

Network builder Netomnia, which is being supported by broadband ISP partner YouFibre, has today added 11,000 premises in the Gloucestershire town of Tewkesbury to the rollout plan for their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP / XGS-PON) network. Meanwhile, YouFibre has just gone live in Barry, South Wales.

The operator, which has so far secured £418 million in funding and already covers over 130,000 UK premises across various towns (estimated build rate of 15,000 premises per month), currently aims to reach 1 million UK homes and businesses by the end of 2023.

NOTE: The company is supported by an equity investment from DigitalBridge, as well as commitments from existing shareholders (Soho Square Capital LLP, Advencap Ltd etc.).

The addition of 11,000 premises in Tewkesbury to their build plan, which is expected to cost £3.3m, is a welcome development. But as usual, Netomnia won’t be the only full fibre network in town. Gigaclear’s rival network has already covered a big chunk of the area, while Openreach have plans to do the same.

Jeremy Chelot, CEO at Netomnia, said:

“Tewkesbury is a particularly special location for the team as it is home to Netomnia HQ. As an area with high economic activity and a lot of skilled workers, access to fast and reliable broadband speeds is crucial. We’re proud to be building our network to residents and businesses in Tewkesbury, with technology that will support them for decades to come.”

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 pay from just £17 per month on an 18-month term (£22 thereafter) for their unlimited 50Mbps package, which rises to £34 if you want their top 900Mbps plan (£50 thereafter). The service is priced aggressively in order to peel away consumers from rivals.

Speaking of YouFibre, they’ve also just started to connect their first customers in the South Wales town of Barry, where Netomnia are investing £8m to reach 29,000 premises (this build was only announced in February 2022).

    Are their packages symmetrical (900/900) or it is more like wannabe fibre from Virgin (900/50)?

      Their packages are symmetrical.

      I have an order awaiting installation with them (YouFibre) for their 1000 package which is 1000/1000 and includes mesh wifi for ~£34/month. Disappointingly I don’t have an installation date yet and later this year will be moving somewhere only Virgin Media is available so it’ll be a big downgrade.

      Isn’t that £34 a month the 18 month contract price?
