ISP Toob Puts New FTTP Broadband Network Live in Gosport

Thursday, Aug 24th, 2023 (3:51 pm) - Score 1,112

Network builder and UK gigabit broadband ISP toob has today announced that their £18m project to roll out a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across the Hampshire (England) town of Gosport, which will eventually reach 45,000 premises in 2024, has finally started to go live.

The announcement doesn’t mention where in the town their service has gone live, although we note that Gosport is already well covered by Virgin Media’s (VMO2) gigabit-capable network and Openreach are also in the process of deploying a fair bit of FTTP. On top of that, Hyperoptic has a small amount of coverage. Otherwise, most of toob’s build activity is currently focused on the large area west of Walpole Park.

NOTE: Toob’s fibre already covers 150,000 premises (not all are Ready for Service) and they have 20,000 customers (c. 95% on their own network). The operator aims to cover 1 million premises across the South of England by 2027 (Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey etc.).

The operator, which was originally backed by £75m from the Amber Infrastructure Group (here) and “up to£87.5m from the Sequoia Economic Infrastructure Income Fund (here), recently secured £160m of additional funding (debt financing) from Ares Management‘s Infrastructure Debt strategy (here) – this can be upsized up to £300m over time to support future growth opportunities.

Nick Parbutt, CEO of toob, said:

“We are delighted that we can now offer our service to Gosport. toob has been built on our belief that access to fast, reliable broadband at an affordable price is a necessity in today’s increasingly digital world. We are committed to delivering the fastest and most reliable service, using the latest full-fibre technology, at an affordable price. Customers will benefit from speeds of 900 Mbps for only £25 per month on an 18 month contract, with no in-contract price rises. They can rely on toob to provide broadband that simply works.”

Customers of the service typically pay just £25 per month on an 18-month term for their 900Mbps (symmetric speed) package (£29 thereafter), which includes a router, unlimited usage, free installation and a pledge of “no in-contract price rises“.

UPDATE 4:05pm

Most of the live premises seem to be in the streets around Wilmott Lane, as well as further north around Worthing Avenue.

    Surprised Toob didn’t go west to Locks Heath, Warsash and Segensworth. Lots of houses and businesses in that area, and there is no FTTP.
