Truespeed plans to bring full fibre in Peasedown St John

One of the rural full fibre service providers in the UK – Truespeed are under process of bringing extension of their Gigabit based FTTP broadband network to the village of Peasedown St John located in Somerset. The village has a population of 6500 residents.

The provider expressed in their website that they are in the process of driving atleast 30% premises to sign up for their service provisionally but a report from Bath Echo says that the ISP has already started their work by installing a new connection box in Wellow Lane.

In the beginning, they will focus on deploying fibre optic cables to connect until St John’s Community Hall. This is the first step in their rollout and to reach other areas of the village. It appears that the process has been supported by the initiative of B&NES Council’s Community Libraries. As of now, the village is having access to FTTC/VDSL2 based network service by Openreach. However it delivers very slow speeds.

VC of Peasedown St John Residents’ Association – Geoff Fenton said that they met the Truespeed team and Neil to discuss about the plans to bring connectivity at St John’s Community Hall. And they are also speaking with the ISP to provide free internet to users of the library and the hall.

Evan Wienburg – TrueSpeed’s CEO said that this year will be a wonderful and exciting year for them as they aspire to bring their full fibre network to many more areas and he feels happy that they plan to extend their network further with more investment than before to improve their lives of the residents in the south west.

Truespeed aims to reach around 75000 premises by the year 2021 in rural areas of South West England and aspire to reach around 2 lakh premises by 2025. Recently they got investment of £75m from Aviva Investors. Till date their projects have executed across the Chew Valley and it may go beyond this area also.
