ISP Lit Fibre Extend FTTP Broadband to Watford and Basildon

Tuesday, Jan 31st, 2023 (11:26 am) - Score 1,232

Network operator and UK broadband ISP Lit Fibre, which aims to reach 500,000 homes by 2026 with their 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, has today announced that they’ve added the towns of Watford (Hertfordshire) and Basildon (Essex) in England to their rollout plan.

The provider, which started their deployment in 2021 and is being backed by an unspecified equity investment from Newlight Partners LP, is currently deploying their network to cover numerous towns across several of England’s counties (e.g. Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, Worcestershire, Essex, Suffolk and across the Midlands).

However, as a result of today’s news, a further 60,000 homes across Watford and 30,000 homes in Basildon will soon be able to access Lit Fibre’s full-fibre service. This is on top of existing builds in nearby areas, such as in the Essex town of Clacton-on-Sea – due to be followed by Chelmsford in February. In Hertfordshire, Watford will similarly join Bishop’s Stortford, Welwyn Garden City, Harpenden, Potter’s Bar and St Albans.

Overall, Lit Fibre states that their network is currently available in Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Chippenham, Cirencester, Evesham, Clacton-on-Sea, Bishop’s Stortford, Sudbury, Harpenden, Redditch and Welwyn Garden City, with installation well underway in Melksham, Sutton Coldfield, Warminster, St Albans, Chelmsford, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Potters Bar, Westbury, Aldridge, and Erdington.

Tom Williams, CEO of Lit Fibre, said:

“At Lit Fibre our offer is simple; we provide the fastest internet connection with the very best customer service. We’re absolutely committed to the towns we serve, bringing them better internet and making life in these towns run smoother. People should be able to feel confident with their internet provider and have no frustrations with speeds or customer service. We want to give everyone the freedom of full-fibre internet with the backup of a business that can be trusted to do right by its customers.”

Residential customers on Lit Fibre’s network currently pay from £18 per month on an 18-month term (£30 thereafter) for their unlimited 100Mbps package (includes a free install, symmetric speeds and a Wi-Fi 6 router), which rises to £39 (£65 thereafter) for 900Mbps (average). Take note that the first 3 months of service is currently being offered for free.

Lit Fibre can naturally expect to face some competition from gigabit-capable rivals in urban locations like this, which may or may not come via Virgin Media, Openreach, Grain, Hyperoptic, Gigaclear and possibly others – varying between the locations.
