Box Broadband Updates on Plan to Expand Full Fibre in South England

Thursday, Aug 11th, 2022 (9:54 am) - Score 2,960

UK ISP Box Broadband, which was acquired last year by CommunityFibre (here) and is rolling out a 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across parts of South England (e.g. Surrey and Sussex), has extended their rollout goal to 250,000 premises and signed Lanes Infrastructure to help build the network.

Just to recap. Box’s previously announced plan, post-acquisition by CommunityFibre, was to accelerate the rollout of their network to reach 200,000 homes across the South of England by 2024. But today’s announcement appears to raise that target by expressing a “goal of delivering fibre to in excess of 250,000 homes by the end of 2024.”

The new partnership build with Lanes-i will benefit tens of thousands of homes per year, across both urban and rural areas. The project will also create new job opportunities, due to the need for additional engineers. But we suspect the ISP will also end up working with other contractors too.

Graham Sargood, CEO of Box Broadband, said:

“We are thrilled to be working with Lanes Infrastructure as they will help us install ultrafast fibre across many communities across the South East.

Our ultrafast full fibre optic technology roll-out will future-proof homes and can help improve their value. These improvements will ensure that the network is fit for purpose and will be able to cope with demand, both today and in the future.

Our teams are local to the communities we serve so our customers can easily access support and we are proud of our quick turnaround times when it comes to helping our customers. We regularly receive positive feedback about the personal support we provide.”

David Roberts, MD of Lanes Infrastructure, said:

“We are delighted to have signed this agreement to partner with Box Broadband and extend our build capabilities across the South East of England.

Lanes-i has grown rapidly over the last 3 years, working with a few key Telco’s implementing full fibre infrastructures over the next 10 years across the UK.”

The provider is currently offering residential packages with symmetric speeds of 100Mbps for £24.95 per month on a 24-month term (currently discounted to £17.95), which rises to £44.95 for their 1Gbps tier. Free installation is also included, and Box are now providing up to 3 months of free broadband to new customers.
