The Freedom Fibre team are excited to announce their full fibre broadband roll-out in Northwich, Comberbach and Hartford, extending their coverage of Cheshire out from Weaverham, where the gigabit-capable network is currently available, and Stockton Heath, where the network is due to go live early August.
The full fibre network roll-out will include the surrounding villages of Pickmere, Wincham, Lostock Gralam, Davenham, Moulton, Great Budworth and Barnton. Residents will be able to connect as early as Autumn 2022 and further areas covered in this build will be announced in the coming weeks.
David Hough, Network Operations Director said, “Reliable, fast, and economic broadband has quickly become a necessity for everybody. As we have moved into a digitally connected world, broadband is now considered an essential utility service. Freedom Fibre are deploying a full fibre network that will futureproof connectivity for our customers, using the latest technology to ensure that we can provide the service residents and businesses require. The Internet of Things (IoT) will see the simplest of household devices requiring fast broadband to operate at their optimum performance, and as we move towards a net-zero society, reliable connectivity is essential in ensuring that devices operate in the most efficient way.”
Northwich is currently served by standard fibre or FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) broadband which is still reliant on copper phone line-based technology that will soon be phased out across the country - read more about the Copper network retirement.
The Freedom Fibre network will provide residents and businesses with access to full fibre, or FTTP (Fibre to the Premises), broadband that is not reliant on the copper network, but instead delivers full fibreoptic technology straight into the home or office. The result is a much faster and a more reliable broadband connection.
