A relatively new UK ISP called Fresh Fibre has become the latest retail provider to join FullFibre Limited‘s (Fibre Heroes) growing Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based gigabit broadband network, which is currently in the process of being merged with Digital Infrastructure (BeFibre).

Just to recap. The merger will create a larger alternative network (AltNets), with services now accessible by over 270,000 premises (RFS) across England and an ambition to deliver 1 million live premises through a wholesale business model by the end of 2025. A total of 67 towns are said to be actively in build or nearing completion, while their coverage should reach 300,000 homes and businesses by the end of 2023.

NOTE: Both FullFibre Ltd (FF) and Digital Infrastructure (DI) have historically been backed by investment from the same source – Basalt Infrastructure Partners LLP.

As a result of today’s announcement, FullFibre’s UK ISP partners now include BeFibre, FACTCO, Fresh Fibre, Gigabit Networks, iDNET, Link Broadband, Merula, OctaPlus, Redline, Squirrel and Worcester I.T Services.

Matt Baker, Head of Wholesale at FullFibre, said:

“We’re really excited to be partnering with Fresh Fibre, who deliver even more choice to customers looking to connect to the FullFibre network. A big part of our ethos at FullFibre is to level the digital landscape across the UK, and Fresh Fibre’s offering is helping us fulfil this ambition”.

We assume that, at some point, both DI and FF will combine their physical networks under a single brand name to help simplify the merged business.

    It says partners but are these all mergers? Or acquisitions? Or something else?

    If these companies are all partnering with Full Fibre, in what way is it a partnership?

    It reads to me as though Fresh Fibre are the network provider and the partners are acting as ISPs. Though I could be wrong.

    As long as it gets them to move quicker on their builds. They announced in May 2022 that they’d be doing the fibre upgrade work at my nearest phone exchange in Hebden Bridge and there’s been no news since, except for ‘Coming Soon’ on the website for over a year.
