FullFibre Ltd Boost UK Broadband Rollout with NETS International

Thursday, Sep 21st, 2023 (12:06 pm) - Score 1,256

Network operator FullFibre Limited (Fibre Heroes), which is rolling out a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband infrastructure across various parts of England for other ISPs to use, has signed a new supply deal with solutions provider NETS International to help “ensure [a] faster network build“.

At present the operator is already aiming to extend their FTTP network to cover “at least” 500,000 premises by 2025, and their build is currently targeting 80+ towns across parts of 11 different counties (e.g. Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire). So far only around 35 of those are active, and their rollout progress remains unclear, but in January 2023 they claimed to be passing 10,000 premises per month.

NOTE: FullFibre Ltd is backed by an unspecified investment from Basalt, but their latest results show an intercompany loan balance of around £75m via FullFibre Holdco Limited (up from £14.4m in 2021).

The new agreement with NETS International looks set to help all this as the supply and network build deal will include cabling, splicing and civil works, starting in the East Midlands region. NETS said they’d be leveraging in-house tools, optimized processes with highly skilled experienced technicians backed by strong project management.

Adele Whild, COO at FullFibre, said:

“As an ambitious business we are always seeking to utilise the best partners to help build our network, ensuring it’s of the highest quality and future-proof. The Nets International offering will assist us to deliver these services for our clients and their end-users. It’s great to be collaborating with them.”

The partnership announcement also highlights how the deal is being “harmoniously synchronized” with the UK government’s Project Gigabit programme, which is interesting since FullFibre Ltd hasn’t yet won any major build contracts under that scheme (smaller voucher builds not withstanding) – perhaps this is a hint that will soon be changing.
