Community Fibre Spotted Expanding FTTP Outside of London

Tuesday, May 9th, 2023 (12:01 am) - Score 3,872

London-focused broadband ISP CommunityFibre, which is deploying a multi-gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to cover 2.2 million premises by the end of 2024 (mostly in the UK’s capital city), has confirmed that its future build plan will stretch into parts of Hertfordshire, Essex and Surrey.

At present CommunityFibre have been clear that their full fibre network build remains predominantly in London and its boroughs, however they’ve informed ISPreview.co.uk that “there are some areas of Hertfordshire, Essex and Surrey that are within the M25 and in Community Fibre’s build plans“.

The news came after some of our readers (Credits to Jan and Mike) spotted their engineers in other locations, such as the Hertfordshire town of Bushey (e.g. Bushey Hall Road). We should point out that this appears to be separate from their other build via Box Broadband – a full fibre network that covers parts of Surrey and West Sussex in England (here), which harbours a “goal of delivering fibre to in excess of 250,000 homes by the end of 2024.”

The provider, which at the last update covered over 720,000 premises in the city (we haven’t had a progress update for a few months), tends to charge from £20 per month on a 24-month term for a 150Mbps (symmetric speed) package and that rises to just £49 per month for their top 3Gbps tier (£51 post contract). Many rivals will find that hard to beat.

    Thought the 2.2m target was just London? Regardless, that goal is ambitious, and do hope they pull it off. Sad that they’ve not provided any status updates, Mark.

    Can’t wait for them to reach me, been 2 years since they signed a wayleave with my landlord

    They’ve had some build done in Dartford 3 years ago. You can verify this on TBB

    The towns outside the m25 have much more competition with FW, Lit, Netomnia, Cityfibre..

      It gets quite hard to do things like cross Red Routes in London. TfL don’t help matters much.

    They have also been installing cabinets in Rickmansworth for the last few months. It literally is a Hertfordshire town just within the border of the M25.

    There’s still parts of London that CF have yet to tackle. Large parts of Enfield and Haringey are unserved by CF as well as most of outer London

      The top half of my street is CF enabled. The bottom half is not. The divide is a house, not even a street.

      Thankfully I’m in the top half!
