Hampshire-based full-fibre broadband provider, toob, is building its own infrastructure in Fleet with customers expected to benefit from the service in 2024. toob is investing £7.5m to cover 19k homes as toob’s network build starts in the coming weeks, bringing state-of-the-art full-fibre broadband technology to Fleet.

toob’s network is different from traditional broadband, with greater reliability and consistent high speeds no matter what time of day. The full-fibre technology means that toob’s customers will benefit from a fibre optic cable run directly into the home.

This type of network 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, and this is why toob offers their full-fibre broadband at an affordable rate; they believe that fast broadband should be available for all and not just the few.

Based on the South coast, toob’s base started in Southampton, and its move into Fleet 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 are going to be able to offer our service to the residents of Fleet. 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.”
