The wholesale network provider, Fibre Heroes, is connecting small, underserved towns across Worcestershire with Droitwich being one of the first to have access.
A full fibre service means residents and businesses are receiving upload and download speeds of up to 1Gigabit per second with thousands of premises ready to connect.
Fibre Heroes partner with a wide variety of alternative ISPs (internet service providers) to offer real competition and valuable choices to customers.
Residents and businesses can rely on a consistent connection, avoid interruption, and seamlessly run multiple applications simultaneously using different devices whilst maintaining fast speeds.
Gareth Yardley of Fibre Heroes commented:
“It’s been a privilege to build in the town of Droitwich. The live network is a real achievement for Fibre Heroes and means it can serve a large proportion of the town. It’s been a challenge but knowing the difference it will make to local residents and generations to come makes the job worthwhile.”
MP Nigel Huddleston said:
“Developments like this are key to the governments’ policy of improving the nation’s connectivity and levelling up more generally. This will come as welcome news to local business as well as those residents that have struggled to work from home in recent years. It’s fantastic that Droitwich has stolen a march on much of the rest of the UK”.
Cllr Bob Brookes, Chairman of Worcestershire County Council and member of Droitwich Town Council, added:
“Full Fibre has been a long time coming. The existing Fibre to the Cabinet, Copper to the Home network has served the town well but will rapidly become obsolete. Only a complete fibre connection will secure town’s future connectivity, so I’m delighted that Droitwich is in the vanguard of this digital revolution and that no property will be left in the slow lane”.
