Thousands of homes to get full-fibre broadband in South Gloucestershire

South-West based broadband provider Truespeed has said it will bring ultrafast broadband to thousands of homes across Bradley Stoke, Patchway, Stoke Gifford and Little Stoke by the summer.

Engineering works have already started which will see more than 16,000 properties able to access to ultra-fast full-fibre broadband as part of a £14m investment by the local provider.

James Lowther, Truespeed CEO, said: “We are so proud of how far we have come in the last few years to help level the digital playing field in the South West. We are delighted to be investing in South Gloucestershire and to be connecting local homeowners to the reliable, guaranteed speed, ultrafast broadband service they deserve.

“The need for broadband isn’t just about using your home computer anymore, connection is intrinsic to the smooth running of our day-to-day lives from a remotely operated thermostat, security camera, or smart meter to our TVs, mobile phones, tablets, and games consoles.”

He added: “While there will be some initial disruption as we connect individual streets, we are committed to being part of the local community and achieving much greater long-term benefits for the area. To date we have connected over 150 schools and community centres across the South West, and supported many more clubs, societies, and charities – we are now actively looking for opportunities to support organisations in South Gloucestershire to demonstrate our commitment.”
