Truespeed has started rolling out its ultrafast, gigabit-capable full fibre broadband network in Bath, propelling the World Heritage city into the gigabit era.
The Bath-based firm is also expanding its footprint into neighbouring areas in Somerset including Keynsham, Saltford and South Widcombe. In Wells, where the Truespeed build began in earnest in June 2020, Truespeed has now passed over 3,000 premises. Today 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.
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.”
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.
“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,” added Evan Wienburg, CEO of Truespeed. “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.”
