Lightning Fibre Extend FTTP Network into Southern Housing Homes

Friday, Jan 19th, 2024 (2:13 pm) - Score 960

Eastbourne-based UK ISP and network builder Lightning Fibre, which is deploying a Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across parts of Sussex and Kent in England, has signed a new deal that will see their multi-gigabit speed full fibre service being expanded to cover homes managed by Southern Housing in East Sussex.

The agreement means Southern Housing residents in areas including East Sussex, Wealden and Rother will benefit from having access to their new full fibre network. Southern Housing is a large UK housing provider with more than 78,000 homes across London, the South East, the Isle of Wight and the Midlands.

Lightning Fibre has also previously signed a wayleave agreement (legal land/property access agreement) with Eastbourne Homes, who own thousands of properties across the same area, as well as Orbit Homes in conjunction with Complete Fibre Group (CTG); and is also working with Trinity Homes to deliver Full Fibre to new developments, including social housing projects.


Stefan Stanislawski, Lightning Fibre’s CEO, said:

“A strong and affordable broadband and internet service is one of the 5 elements of digital inclusion. With a move towards digital services to modernise and streamline how housing associations interact with residents, an affordable internet connection is vital. Lightning Fibre will ensure people are not left behind as we help create ‘Digital Britain’.”

The operator, which is backed by private equity firm Foresight (here), first began their UK rollout in 2019 and initially aimed to reach 140,000 premises (we haven’t had a progress update in a long time). Some of their locations include Eastbourne, Hastings, Hailsham, St Leonard’s, Heathfield and the Broad Oak areas of East Sussex and Kent (here).
