FibreNation, the company created by British broadband provider TalkTalk to construct fibre-optic infrastructure across the country, has named Dewsbury as the fourth location where it will roll out its gigabit-capable network. In a press release regarding the matter, the company confirmed that construction on the town’s new network is already underway, with work reported to have commenced sometime last month. FibreNation has said it expects the first properties in Dewsbury to be able to connect to its infrastructure in October 2019, with works in the town expected to be completed ‘by 2022’.
As previously reported by CommsUpdate, in November 2018 TalkTalk launched FibreNation, confirming the new entity would operate under an independent chair and identifying the first three locations to benefit from its fibre rollout as Harrogate, Ripon and Knaresborough. TalkTalk also noted that it would be the first customer on FibreNation, wholesaling access to the network to sell full fibre services to subscribers.
