Fibre Heroes delivers more choice for consumers with Fibre Heroes’ lightening-fast broadband

In a first for 50 towns in England, residents and businesses can now access full fibre, or FTTP, with multiple providers, bringing better value gigabit-capable internet to the town.

From 7 November, over 100,000 residents and businesses in 50 towns will benefit from this increased choice and availability. They will have access to 12 different full fibre broadband providers on Fibre Heroes’ gigabit-capable service – bringing significantly more reliable broadband and better consumer choice.

The availability of full fibre infrastructure is often identified as key to delivering economic growth, as set out in the Government’s plan to extend local full fibre networks across the UK.

Brought to these 50 towns by the full fibre network provider known as Fibre Heroes, the service is different to BT’s network, which national service providers (like Sky) sell their services on. This new infrastructure is a Government-backed upgrade to the UK’s old copper network, and a lot of the current partial fibre network. Meaning it’s genuinely full fibre (all the way to the home) and not a partial upgrade as lots in the area will have today.

Managing Director of Fibre Heroes, James Warner, comments, “We’re really pleased to bring the residents and businesses of these 50 towns more choice in their broadband provider, stimulating competition and making available best-in-class internet services for the area. We know access to ultrafast connectivity has a real-world positive impact on how communities operate and the way we live our lives, so we’re proud to be able to deliver improved services for many people up and down the UK”.
Full fibre is a more reliable internet service and allows up to 1Gbps download speeds for those homes and businesses using its network. However, this newly available service may not be available through all broadband companies, so it’s important to check which ones can now offer the service.
