Following on from their announcement on 29th September that Lit Fibre was planning on starting to deploy its 10Gb capable network in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire and in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, the company has confirmed that it has completed the first phase of the installation of its gigabit fibre network in both towns.
Residents living within these areas can now order their full-fibre broadband service. Lit Fibre offers a choice of symmetrical 100Mb, 500Mb or 1Gb packages. Lit Fibre’s 10Gb capable network delivers a much more reliable and consistent service than the old copper based network, bringing the best broadband infrastructure available anywhere in the world to the residents of Cirencester and Bishop’s Stortford. Introductory prices start from just £28 a month for Lit100 and are subject to a minimum 12 month period.
Residents of Bishop’s Stortford and Cirencester can check availability and order via litfibre.com. Lit Fibre is in the midst of rolling out across both towns, which will continue into 2022. Residents can keep up to date with the progress by registering interest via litfibre.com.
Bishop’s Stortford and Cirencester were the second and third towns to be announced by Lit Fibre, (announced 29th Sept) following the launch of its services in Chippenham, which went live in July and where the rollout is expected to complete in March 2022.
Lit Fibre has also announced that it has started the installation of its 10Gb capable network in both Sudbury, Suffolk and Evesham, Worcestershire and expects to connect the first homes in the town before the end of 2021. This announcement of the fourth and fifth towns on Lit Fibre’s deployment plan means the company is actively rolling its network out to over 100,000 homes a year after the company launched, making an impressive start towards achieving its goal of 500,000 homes by 2026.
Tom Williams, CEO of Lit Fibre, said:
“It’s fantastic to announce we’re live in Cirencester and Bishop’s Stortford so soon after our first homes went live in Chippenham. We know how much the residents of these towns have been waiting for full fibre and want to move off the unreliability of copper cables.
We’re really pleased to also let the residents of Sudbury and Evesham know we will be lighting their area up really soon with our high-quality network delivering world-class broadband speeds."
Cllr Philip Robinson, Gloucestershire County Council Cabinet member for Economy, Education and Skills, said:
“This is very welcome news for people in Cirencester who will benefit from faster broadband speeds. Access to reliable, consistent broadband is important so I’m pleased to see this new network being deployed across the town.”
Julie Marson, MP for Hertford & Stortford, said:
“I am delighted to see these full fibre services being rolled out in Bishop’s Stortford. Demand for high speed, reliable broadband is higher than ever, with more people requiring strong connections for their homes. Having this 10Gb network in the town future-proofs our residents’ connectivity for decades to come.”
