Nascent British pure fibre provider Full Fibre Limited has announced the next batch of locations where it plans to roll out its infrastructure, ISPreview reports. As per the company’s latest announcement, Full Fibre plans to extend the reach of its fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network to cover 100,000 premises across eleven locations, in which the majority of premises will be able to access a service capable of gigabit speeds ‘within the next twelve months’.
In line with the company’s focus on targeting what it has termed ‘forgotten market towns and areas, initially in the West Midlands, Central and South West, that might otherwise be left behind by the national FTTP rollout’, the areas targeted have been named as: Bayston Hill, Cam, Dursley, Droitwich, Leominster, Malmesbury, Oswestry, Ross-on-Wye, Shrewsbury, Stourport-on-Severn and Wem.
The fibre provider operates its network as a wholesale platform via iNeedFibre for other UK ISPs to harness, and its infrastructure is understood to be already ‘live’ at thousands of premises in locations such as Ivybridge, Leominster and South Hams. In terms of the company’s long-term aims, it has said it aims to cover ‘at least’ 500,000 premises across the UK by 2025.
