Freedom Fibre expands full-fibre network into hometown, Irlam

Full-fibre to the premises (FFTP) is transformational. Not to be confused with Fibre or Infinity which still uses the old copper wires from roadside cabinets, full-fibre delivers over 500Mbits with exceptional reliability to residences and businesses alike.

As Freedom Fibre’s new full-fibre network grows into Irlam and Cadishead, Chief Executive Officer, Neil McArthur comments on their expansion into an area so close to his heart.

“I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to secure the funds to deliver our full-fibre network to the 9000 homes and businesses of Irlam & Cadishead. The copper networks have reached the end of their lives and need replacing, our new network will bring significantly upgraded, ultra-fast, reliable and affordable internet connectivity to an area exceptionally close to my heart. I was born and schooled in Irlam. I have since spent most of my working life on the Northbank Estate, firstly at Thurnall Engineering, followed by Opal telecom, then TalkTalk and now Freedom Fibre. It’s great to be involved in driving the expansion of the Freedom Fibre full-fibre network in my hometown, knowing my businesses, friends and neighbours will all enjoy the benefits.”
