UK broadband provider toob today announced it is bringing its full-fibre broadband to Portsmouth, partnering with CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full-fibre platform. The partnership will see tens of thousands homes across Southsea, Fratton, Milton, Eastney, Copnor and Burrfields have access to toob’s full-fibre broadband from today.

Customers will be able to benefit from download and upload speeds of 900 Mbps, receiving a better service to improve their working from home life, gaming, streaming and general internet connection. Enabling residents to become better connected for only £25 a month and no in-contract price rises.

toob will be using CityFibre’s full-fibre network to deliver this service. With CityFibre’s network, fibre optic cables are connected directly to the home, rather than traditional broadband providers that deliver internet via old copper cables to the premises. This network promises residents a faster, more reliable internet connection, and with toob at an affordable rate.

Nick Parbutt, CEO and Founder said: “We are pleased to announce we are bringing our full-fibre broadband to Portsmouth in partnership with CityFibre. Full-fibre delivers faster and more reliable access to the internet than existing technologies, and with toob broadband residents can enjoy the full speeds and benefits this technology has to offer for only £25 per month. Streamers, surfers, gamers and work from homers will all benefit from the faster and more consistent speeds and the greater reliability that this new technology delivers.

With household costs rising, it is even more important that our customers can sign up to toob’s broadband and know they are going to pay £25 throughout the length of the contract – no ifs, no buts. No in-contract price rises will therefore be something that our customers can trust us to maintain, particularly in these challenging times. Customers who order before 30th November will also benefit from our Black Friday offer. Another fantastic reason for choosing the UK’s fastest ISP1.”

To celebrate the partnership, the Spinnaker Tower will be lit up with toob’s brand colours throughout November. The announcement follows toob’s recent expansion of its own network build into Gosport, Lee-on-the-Solent and Aldershot, continuing the broadband providers growth across the South of England.

CityFibre are continuing to roll out their £32m full-fibre network investment and anticipate covering almost every premise in Portsmouth. The partnership between toob and CityFibre will provide toob’s customers with 15x faster download speeds and 68x times faster upload speeds2 than the UK average, all for £25 a month across the Portsmouth area.
