Ogi Bring FTTP Broadband to 500 Holiday Homes in South Wales

Infracapital-backed UK ISP Ogi, which is investing £200 million to roll-out a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across 150,000 premises in South Wales by 2025, has signed a 10-year deal with Fontygary Leisure Park in the Vale of Glamorgan that will enable around 500 holiday homes to be connected to their full fibre lines.

The deal will bring gigabit-capable connectivity to long-term park residents and holidaymakers for the first time, with leisure park staff also being upskilled to install and manage the new service in the process.

NOTE: Ogi currently has a workforce of 200 – based in four offices across the region. The coverage total of 60,000 premises mentioned below are not all Ready for Service (RFS is about 10% lower).

Speaking as work gets underway, Andrew Dow, Ogi’s Director of Business Sales, said: “We’re really excited to be welcoming Fontygary to the Ogi network. This landmark deal is a real gamechanger for us and, I hope, residents and visitors to the park, who’ll all benefit from our ultrafast and ultra-reliable Welsh broadband speeds.”

The operator, which is now working in parts of over 60 towns and villages across Wales (they also have a small presence in South West England), recently reported that they had covered a total of 60,000 premises to July 2023 (up from 47,500 in March 2023) and had added 6,000 customers “in less than a year” (here).

Customers of the service can expect to pay from £30 per month for an unlimited plan with downloads of 150Mbps (15Mbps upload) and an included wireless router on a 24-month term, which rises to £60 for their top 900Mbps (90Mbps upload) plan. New customers will also get six months FREE broadband and evening and weekend voice calling.

    Hopefully this is the first of many. We’ve flexed our normal network architecture on this project to create a tailored solution for Holiday/Caravan parks. This includes our first use of the Emtelle QWKconnect product a pre-fibred and pre-connectorised microduct solution that we direct bury to each plot in the park. https://www.emtelle.com/solutions-library/qwkconnect/

    We’ve also delegated provisioning of the ONT’s using the Fibre Installation Portal (FIP) capability from Netadmin Systems

    Finally we are providing delegated access to the eero Service Provider Portal for the park to be able to monitor and manage the WiFi Routers. eero recently made new functionality available for delegated management of MDU’s and we recognised that this would work equally well for this usecase.

      @Justin Very interesting. Will this allow the Holiday/Caravan park to provision internet access in a short term basis? How will that work in practice? Do they have access to special short term plans? Thanks

    Hoping Porth goes Live for Ogi soon!
