London ISP Community Fibre Merges Brand with Box Broadband

Friday, May 3rd, 2024 (12:12 pm) - Score 2,600

Network builder and UK broadband ISP CommunityFibre (CF), which runs a large 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across London and surrounding areas, has notified that their sibling Altnet for Surrey and West Sussex, Box Broadband, will in the near future be adopting CF’s branding.

In case anybody has forgotten, Box Broadband was originally acquired by CF back in the summer of 2021 (here) and, at the last update some time ago, they were claiming to have covered around 50,000 premises across various communities in the Surrey and West Sussex counties of England. But they previously held a “goal of delivering fibre to in excess of 250,000 homes by the end of 2024”.

NOTE: Community Fibre alone covers c. 1.3 million premises in London (Nov 2023), which we think would probably reach around 1.4m with the addition of Box into that total.

However, given the recent slowdown of build and redundancies at CF (here and here), it’s perhaps not surprising that Box’s parent operator is now starting to bring the two brands closer together – a change that looks as if it will start to be introduced from around the middle of next week (8th May).

    I wonder if that also means Box customers will get access to 3Gbps.

      It would depend on whether Box have used XGS-PON or not, some of their network deployment has been around for well over 5 years, before PIA was really used

      IIRC 3Gb was a requirement to get a public IP on CF – I guess they’ll ease that for Box customers?
