Truespeed announces full-fibre broadband roll-out in Bath region

By Nick Batten on 12 February, 2021

Bath-based Truespeed has started rolling out its ultrafast, gigabit-capable full-fibre broadband network in Bath while also expanding its footprint into neighbouring areas in Somerset including Keynsham, Saltford and South Widcombe.

In Wells, where the Truespeed build began in June 2020, Truespeed has passed over 3,000 premises who will now be able to connect to the network.  The firm has announced that it is boosting its investment in Wells, with plans to connect more areas of the city and continue expanding its current building works in surrounding areas such as Wookey and Coxley.

On a mission to bring left-behind towns, cities and rural communities across the South-West the benefits of affordable, full-fibre broadband direct to their doors, Truespeed’s ultra-fast broadband infrastructure roll-out continues at pace.

Truespeed has already connected over 200 communities ignored by national broadband providers. By building a brand new infrastructure, Truespeed can deliver 10 gigabit-capable full-fibre broadband directly into premises – guaranteeing quick connectivity and cast-iron reliability, even at peak times. The company is en route to its ambitious target of passing 500,000 properties by 2025.

In keeping with its community-first ethos, Truespeed also offers primary schools and community hubs passed by its network free ultrafast broadband for life. To date, over 100 schools and community hubs have signed up.

Wera Hobhouse, MP for Bath said, “Truespeed’s investment will benefit the city enormously as ultrafast broadband connectivity can’t come soon enough for Bath businesses and residents. It’s great that a Bath-based firm is at the forefront of supporting our communities and taking our beautiful city into the full fibre fast lane.”

Evan Wienburg, CEO of Truespeed, added, “We’re excited to get going in Bath while stepping up the roll-out of our full fibre network in Wells and surrounding areas in Somerset. We’re lighting up our map of the South-West and bringing under-served households and businesses the future-proofed gigabit capable connectivity they deserve.”

In November, Truespeed introduced a new range of ultrafast full-fibre broadband packages.
