Netomnia’s Full Fibre Broadband Covers 1 Million UK Premises

Monday, Jul 8th, 2024 (10:26 am) - Score 1,560
Netomnia-Helmet

One of the UK market’s largest alternative network operators, Netomnia (YouFibre), has today announced that after four years of work they’ve managed to build their 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP infrastructure to cover 1 million premises passed (Ready for Service) – rising to 1.6m once the Brsk merger (here) completes.

The figure of 1 million premises (RFS) represents another significant improvement from the 960,000 they had just a month ago, which shows that their rollout has not been dampened by the wider market’s many challenges (i.e. they’ve added 500,000 premises within the last year alone). The network sells its packages to consumers and businesses via sibling ISP YouFibre, which had 80,000 customers in March 2024 (c.140k if you include Brsk).

NOTE: Netomnia and broadband ISP YouFibre have so far raised £795.5m via Advencap, DigitalBridge and Soho Square (excluding Brsk).

Since its inception, Netomnia has now laid over 15,600km of fibre cabling to build its network – the equivalent distance of London to Cairns, Australia – and specialises in a lower cost approach to build, which seems to be working well and gives them greater tolerance when growing take-up.

The operator previously aimed to continue this network expansion, with a plan to reach up to 2 million premises by the end of 2025. But that has since been boosted by the merger agreement with Brsk. The combined network thus technically already covers 1.6 million premises and now aims to reach 3 million premises (coverage) by the end of 2025.

Zoltán Kovács, Managing Director at Netomnia, said:

“We are incredibly proud that our network now serves one million premises. We started building our network in 2020 and to reach one million premises in just four years is truly unprecedented. This achievement is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team. Thank you to all our partners and stakeholders for being part of this journey.

By accelerating the UK’s transition to fibre, we’re empowering residents and businesses to unleash their potential by providing access to world-class connectivity, today.”

Customers of YouFibre typically pay from £22.99 per month for their 150Mbps package, which rises to just £29.99 for 1Gbps and £99.99 for the dizzy heights of 7-8Gbps on a 24-month term. The provider has also pledged “no in-contract price rises” and “no set-up fees“.

      It’s even more frustrating when they’ve had your area announced for over 2 years and yet to see a shovel in the ground!

      They aren’t likely to overbuild Ogi, Bob.

      Or even worse, promise to deliver to an area, send letters by post confirming it, have online checkers saying its coming for months, only to not have it in the end, but other roads nearby have it. No complex work or buried cables.

      @XGS They are in Hengoed and Ystrad Mynach!

      How dare people be frustrated when cables have been in the ground for 2 years.
      How dare other people be upset when I have my FTTP.

      Serious case of I’m alright Jack here with this John fellow telling people how they’re allowed to feel or not. Waste of electrons reading that.

    But unable to get done Wisbech (PE13).

    Started in 2021, promised broadband soon. keep saying that will get it soon. Tun out of contract for a year as expected broadband any moment. No one can give straight answer.

    Looks, found myself answer that their contractors (Light Source) went on administration. Since last March (2023) all cables in poles are dumped, no one cares… .
    Is it really so difficult to find new contractors?

    Incredible progress from the NO/YF team!

    Netomnia have finally been building their backbone in my village these past few weeks, absolutely chomping at the bit to get signed up!

    1. Avatar photo Waiting forever... says:

      That means nothing. They can still do one road and ignore the road next to it, with no reason even if you ask their Customer Services (who are polite).

    Hopefully this will actually go live this decade! No Over build other than OR, Freedom Fibre decide not to come. North Wales seems to be the forgotten country, no Alternative builders. 🙁

    1. Avatar photo Facts says:

      Stop winging on and on about Wrexham.

      And for the record there are “alternative builders” in Wales – e.g. Ogi. There’s even Nexfibre actively building in Wrexham!

      Mergers & acquisitions as consolidation gathers pace means that the situation may not stay the same for long. Netnomnia-Brsk may get taken over or it may take over other altnets (Fern please Jeremy!). The situation is too dynamic to guarantee where you’ll end up anyway.

    Would NOT recommend youfibre. I am with them and have considerably worse latency wired than my old FTTC TalkTalk 36mb package. Stuck in a 2 year contract.

  7. Avatar photo Yatta! says:

    Their build has reached a mile from my house, I’m praying the reach me eventually, there are FTTP provider here currently. Gigabit symmetrical would be amazing.

  8. Avatar photo YouFibre Shane says:

    Hi TP, very sorry to hear about the latency, this is very out of character for any of our services. Could you please send an email to hello@youfibre.com and include “FAO – Shane B” in the subject line. We can take a look then and find a resolution for you!
