UK broadband provider, toob has today announced it is bringing new gigabit-capable fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband network to Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent. toob will be building its own infrastructure to bring full-fibre broadband to the towns’ residents and businesses.

With toob’s FTTP 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 FTTP network promises residents a faster, more reliable internet connection at an affordable rate. toob is investing £18m to cover 45,000 premises with this new infrastructure. Currently, toob’s network can be found in cities and towns across Surrey and Hampshire including Southampton, Fareham, Aldershot, Farnborough and Camberley.

The communities of Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent will soon benefit from full-fibre broadband with download and upload speeds of 900 Mbps. With the Gosport’s current average broadband speed reported as just 106 Mbps, the residents in the area will be able to receive a better service to improve their working from home life, gaming, streaming and general internet connection.

Nick Parbutt, CEO and Founder of toob said:

I am delighted to announce that we are bringing full-fibre broadband to Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent. There is a need for fast and reliable broadband and full-fibre is the best technology to deliver this experience.

“At toob we want all members of the local community to get the benefit of full-fibre, so we provide all our customers with 900 Mbps. This allows our customers to surf, stream, game and work – all at the same time – without the worry of slowing down at peak times or the signal dropping out at a critical moment. We offer this service for £25 per month on an 18 month contract to make these benefits available to everyone, not just the few.”

At just £25 a 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. Residents of Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent can register their interest here to be the first to know when they can order the new full-fibre broadband service.
