Fareham is set to become one of the best-connected towns in the country thanks to Hampshire-based full-fibre broadband provider, toob. toob delivers superior broadband connectivity thanks to its full-fibre network (also known as fibre-to-the-premises or FTTP) where fibre optic cables are connected directly to the premises of its customers, contrary to the traditional broadband providers who deliver internet via a mix of fibre-to-the-cabinet (green box in the street) and old copper cables to the premises. It’s through the use of full-fibre that toob is able to provide its customers with symmetrical download and upload speeds of 900 Mbps with no slowdown in performance at peak time.

toob has been rolling out its full-fibre network across Southampton since 2019, earning a Trustpilot rating of “Excellent”. It is now deploying its network across more towns in Hampshire and Surrey, with the ambition to transform the South of England’s internet experience. Detailed network planning has commenced in Fareham, with build activity due to start imminently and first customers to be connected by the end of the year.

Nick Parbutt, CEO of toob, said: “I am delighted to announce that we are bringing full-fibre broadband to Fareham. Families and businesses require fast and reliable broadband and full-fibre is the best technology to deliver this experience. Our customers tell us every day how much better our service is and the benefit this has brought them. Whether it’s taking one of the stresses away from working at home, running their business more efficiently or having the whole family able to connect to the internet with no slowdowns or buffering. We want everyone to be able to enjoy these benefits, so our service is simple and affordable. One speed, 900 Mbps on download and upload, at only £25 per month.”

Thousands of customers are already benefiting from the improved speed and reliability that toob’s full-fibre service delivers. toob customer Spencer said: “Really good experience with toob. Super easy install and really fast internet throughout the house. Great price and easy to get in touch… I couldn’t recommend more.”

At just £25 per month for 900 Mbps symmetrical speeds, with unlimited usage and no line rental charges, toob offers the most competitive residential full-fibre broadband service in the UK. Fareham residents can register their interest here to be the first to know when they can order the new full-fibre broadband service.
