FullFibre’s Fibre Heroes have invested £4.1million to bring an ultrafast full fibre network to North Wingfield businesses and residents, with services now live.
This long-anticipated upgrade to the current network means that residents in North Wingfield, as well as neighbouring areas Grassmoor and Holmewood, now have access to 100% fibre optic ultrafast internet. This new service provides more dependable internet connections, with 1Gbps download speeds that are 20 times faster than the national average.
Homes and business in the town are now live, with services available through multiple internet providers.
North Wingfield is one of a number of Derbyshire towns being served by Fibre Heroes, whose mission is to connect the underserved towns of the UK with superior broadband.
CSO of Fibre Heroes, James Warner, comments, “We are really pleased that our wholesale only fibre network is now live in North Wingfield. Local homes and business can now access these ultrafast connections and be a leading UK town when it comes to digital services.
“The internet is an integral part of daily life, and it has a real impact on how communities operate and the way we live our lives. Everyone has the right to the best internet connection possible, and we can’t wait to serve that through our partner community to local residents”.
Local business and residents can access these new services through any broadband provider active in the area, including BeFibre, Gigabit Networks, IDNet, Link Broadband, Merula, Octaplus, Redline and Squirrel.
