British wholesale fibre network operator Netomnia has announced that it has begun rolling out its infrastructure in Bridgend, marking the company’s first move into Wales and what it called ‘the next step in its strategy to deliver ultrafast internet access across the UK’.
According to Netomnia, it plans to provide services based on fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology to more than 55,000 premises in Bridgend and will utilise existing underground ducting and overhead infrastructure in order to reduce local disruption and facilitate fast and efficient execution. The company is partnering with GForce Telecoms to roll out its broadband infrastructure in the Welsh town.
Founded in 2019, Netomnia currently claims to have deployed full fibre broadband infrastructure in 17 towns and cities in England and Scotland, with its network passing a total of 75,000 premises. With the company having recently secured GBP123 million (USD164 million) in funding to support its rollout strategy, Netomnia ultimately aims to reach one million premises with full fibre connectivity by 2023. Services for residential users are, meanwhile, provided via the company’s ISP partner YouFibre.
