WightFibre full-fibre broadband now available to 40,000 premises on the Isle of Wight

by uma


WightFibre today announced over 40,000 premises on the Isle of Wight can now receive its full-fibre broadband service. This includes availability for the first time in Ventnor, Lake, Nettlestone and Seaview. Majority of the homes in Sandown and Shanklin are also ready for service. Cables have already been laid to a further 10,000 homes with service to those homes scheduled to become available over the summer.

This means WightFibre’s Gigabit Island Project is well over the half-way mark with a total of 460km of trenches dug to date. The company expects service to be available to 60,000 premises by the end of the year and to 75,000 homes by the end of 2023 with an ultimate target of around 80,000 premises. This is 96% of all premises – a very high percentage coverage particularly for a rural area such as the Isle of Wight.

John Irvine, CEO of WightFibre, said, “We are really pleased to have connected our first full-fibre customers in Ventnor and Seaview. We expect the network build across the Island to be largely complete by the end of 2023”.

Our new full-fibre, future-proof network is second to none on the planet and this, coupled with our very high levels of customer care, is giving customers what they want – fast reliable broadband that just works.”

WightFibre’s full-fibre, ultrafast and future-proof broadband is live in Cowes, East Cowes, Newport, Wootton, Ryde, Lake, Nettlestone, Seaview, Sandown, Shanklin, Ventnor and are about to go live in Freshwater and Yarmouth – extending our reach into the West of the Island. Work on WightFibre’s Gigabit Island Project is ongoing in St Helens, Bembridge, Brading and numerous other towns and villages across the Island.
