Zzoomm’s FTTP Broadband Goes Live in Congleton, Cheshire UK

Monday, Jun 12th, 2023 (10:17 am) - Score 664

Broadband network builder and UK ISP Zzoomm has today announced that the first customers in the Cheshire town of Congleton are now able to connect to their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) infrastructure, which follows only a year after the build itself (here) was first announced.

The operator, which aspires to cover 1 million premises across 85 UK towns by the end of 2025 (mostly in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Yorkshire, Staffordshire, Wiltshire, West Yorkshire and Cheshire), states that they’ve invested £6.25m from their funding pot to build the new network in Congleton. Once completed, the local fibre should reach 12,500 properties.

NOTE: Zzoomm is fuelled by an equity investment of £100m from Oaktree Capital (here) and a £100m debt facility via an international banking consortium (here).

Customers who take the residential service typically pay from £29.95 per month for an unlimited 150Mbps (symmetric speed) package on a 12-month term with an included router, which goes up to just £64.95 if you want their top 2Gbps tier (or £39.95 for 900Mbps+). Most of their packages also discount the price for the first 3 months of service.

However, they will face some local competition, since Openreach has already deployed their own gigabit-capable full fibre network across most of the town. But the good news is that, for now, that appears to be their only large-scale gigabit competitor in the town and so there should be enough space for both to compete.

    I wish them luck, sadly a lot of people will stay with what they have got and will not go to a different network. Where I live, Zzoomm were the first FTTP here, well apart from a couple of streets that had Openreach FTTP, since Zzoomm started Openreach decided they wanted more of the action and moved their backside to do some more of the city.
    The more people that goes to a Alt net the better.
