Fibrus announces roll out plan for 2022
Their roll out continues at pace across Northern Ireland but today their announcement includes the first areas they intend to service in the North of England.
In Northern Ireland, the list of major towns Fibrus began planning and building includes Omagh, Ballymoney, Cookstown, Downpatrick, Dromore, Coleraine and Banbridge, whilst in Cumbria they plan to deliver to the towns of Penrith and Kendal this year. An additional 145,000 premises will be connected once works are completed in these areas, bringing the company’s total reach to over 250,000 homes and businesses by the end of 2022.
Fibrus’ Chief Executive, Dominic Kearns said: “We’re delighted to be announcing our plans for this year to allow customers to know when they can expect to see us. Homes and businesses in these towns have been deprived of proper broadband and competition for too long, so we are looking forward to adding more and more of these towns and villages to our transformative new network.
“We’re just about to complete the build to one of our bigger towns in Northern Ireland, Omagh, and in April we will see the first homes go live in the town of Penrith in Cumbria. Our delivery capacity continues to grow, along with our key sub-contractors, and we look forward to driving the output even further in 2023.
"Fibrus is committed to investing where the bigger phone companies have had no competition for years. Finally consumers in these towns will have an option to buy proper full fibre broadband from a broadband company.”
