RunFibre Put Full Fibre Live in Tiny Gloucestershire Village of Over

Monday, Mar 20th, 2023 (4:09 pm) - Score 880

Broadband ISP RunFibre, which is deploying a Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across rural areas of South Gloucestershire (England), has announced that they’ve completed their gigabit voucher-supported build to 119 rural properties in the village of Over and its surroundings.

The move complements their existing builds in the communities of Hawkesbury Upton, Inglestone Common, Easter Compton, Bradley Stoke, Little Stoke, Patchway, Charfield, Little Badminton, Sopworth and surrounding areas. At present, RunFibre aims to have a total of 3,500 premises covered across all of their areas by March 2023 (they were well over the 2,000 mark in August 2022), including 1,000 customers connected.

Customers usually pay from £25 per month on a 24-month term for their 100Mbps (symmetric speed) package, which rises to £60 for their top 1Gbps tier. Alternatively, you can take a shorter 12-month term for £5 more per month. Plus, they offer a cheaper 100Mbps Social Tariff for £20 per month. The provider also sells different services over the CityFibre network in Wolverhampton and Gloucester.

As a side note. The South Gloucestershire Council recently announced that the region had exceeded the government’s 85% Project Gigabit broadband coverage goal, well ahead of the target date of 2025. The gigabit broadband coverage figure for the area is currently at 85.09%, much higher than the national average of 72%.

South Gloucestershire Council is now aiming to reach 90% gigabit coverage by December 2025, and 95% coverage by December 2027. These targets will keep the area on track to reach the government’s national target of 100% coverage by 2030 (strictly speaking, they’ve only said “nationwide” coverage by 2030 but haven’t put a solid % next to that).

    Is this all carried on exiting shared/new poles?

    Or to put it more jokingly, is it all Over in Over or is any of it under in Over.

      Runfibre mostly uses Openreach’s duct and poles to install their fibre.
