Portsmouth-based full-fibre broadband provider, toob, is investing £18m building its own infrastructure in Gosport with 45,000 homes and businesses able to benefit from the most reliable broadband technology in the UK*. toob’s network build started in 2022, bringing state-of-the-art full-fibre broadband technology to Gosport, offering greater speeds and reliability.

The first customers are now connected with roll-out continuing across Gosport into 2024.

toob’s network is different from traditional broadband, and Gosport’s new 100% full-fibre network benefits from a fibre optic cable run directly into homes, which transmit data at lightspeed.

This offers faster connection speeds when compared to traditional broadband that delivers internet via fibre to the cabinet and then old copper cables to the premises – which have slower speeds and are less reliable. 

 Following two recent award wins, including Best Urban Fibre Provider, toob’s values have affordability and customer care at their core, taking bold steps to maintain a flat affordable price, and toob’s no in-contract price rise promise means customers can be confident that their bills won’t increase mid-contract.  

During the cost of living crisis, with prices rising faster than wages, many people face difficult affordability choices.

As a result, almost a million people have switched off their broadband, but toob’s new network in Gosport offers full-fibre broadband at an affordable rate; toob believe that fast broadband should be available for all and not just the few.   

Based in Portsmouth, toob’s base started in Southampton, and its move into Gosport is hot on the heels of rapid growth from Hampshire and Surrey into Dorset and Sussex.

After recently securing £300m funding, toob is expanding their compelling full-fibre broadband service to increase broadband accessibility and digital inclusion across the South. 

Nick Parbutt, CEO, toob, said, “We are delighted that we can now offer our service to Gosport. toob has been built on our belief that access to fast, reliable broadband at an affordable price is a necessity in today’s increasingly digital world.

 We are committed to delivering the fastest and most reliable service, using the latest full-fibre technology, at an affordable price. Customers will benefit from speeds of 900 Mbps for only £25 a month on an 18 month contract, with no in-contract price rises. They can rely on toob to provide broadband that simply works.
