With access to £100m of private funding to support its national roll out, BeFibre has moved a team of broadband engineers into the area to deliver FTTP connectivity.
Striving to be known as the internet service provider that keeps its promises – and delivers broadband as it should be – BeFibre will offer download and upload speeds up to 13 times faster than the fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) coverage that currently spans the majority of the UK. Such speeds equate to the ability to download a 1-hour TV programme in only 7 seconds, or 500 Spotify songs in 25 seconds, for example.
With the company aiming to reach 80 locations and 1,000,000 premises by 2027, this is significant news for Oundle – a location which has always featured particularly early on the roadmap.
Oundle’s full-fibre network will be planned, built, and operated by BeFibre’s sister company – Digital Infrastructure. Utilising existing ducts without having to dig up the town’s roads, the firm’s strategy is to adopt quicker and less disruptive build methods, to lower roll out costs, increase efficiency, and minimise the environmental impact of the network deployment. The connectivity will be rolled out in a phased programme, with build work starting this month and first homes activated and ready for service in August.
With BeFibre, residents can upload 100 Instagram photos in 5 seconds or an entire new-release PS5 game in only 14 minutes – all without any connectivity worries when they’re trying to work efficiently from home on a video call.
The BeFibre team has pledged to have a very visible presence in Oundle, as part of their commitment to becoming part of the community.
