Close to Completion – 1GB Broadband for Wootton Homes

In July last year WightFibre announced yet another Island first with news that ten new homes in Wootton will benefit from their brand new 1000Mb broadband which will be delivered through fibre optic cable laid directly into the new homes. The first new occupants are due to move in and enjoy these new services from the end of March.

1000Mb or 1GB is over 30 times the UK average, 6.5 times faster than WightFibre’s previous fastest recorded speed and nearly 13 times faster than BT’s fastest speed. This new installation demonstrates the capability of WightFibre’s network and is just the start of plans to rollout these speeds across the cable network over the next few years.

The new development, named The Wiltons, comprises of ten new two and three bedroom homes in a quiet cul-de-sac in Wootton. They are contemporary houses, finished to a high standard but are designed to be affordable and spacious. The Wiltons are also available for first-time buyers to purchase under the Government’s ‘Help To Buy’ scheme.

Having a 1000Mb connection means that the new owners will be able to download movies and music in seconds, watch content in multiple rooms and use streaming services such as Netflix with no buffering.

Pete Collinge of WightFibre has been excited to talk about this latest step towards providing the whole Island with Wightfibre’s super-fast services:

We have always had a reputation of pushing the boundaries of communications across the Island and this is another first that will allow owners of these new properties to receive the full fibre experience and endless online possibilities as never before.” – Pete Collinge, WightFibre Sales Director

Wooton Estate agents are delighted to be offering up to 1000Mb broadband and Director Ben Williams explained the importance of fast connections to potential home buyers in this day and age:

The option of the 1000Mb broadband has been part of our sales features as we now live in a digital age where internet speeds are now becoming a more essential consideration to anyone purchasing a home.” – Ben Williams, Wootton Estate Agents Director

It has been announced that in 2018, WightFibre will begin work to bring speeds of up to 1000Mb across the entire cable network. This plan is due for completion in 2020.
