Truespeed invests £22m into Bath & South West
November 1, 2022
Bath-based Truespeed has announced a £22 million (€25.5m) investment across multiple South West locations including South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath as it continues to accelerate the rollout of its ultrafast full fibre broadband throughout the region.
Truespeed has added 12 new areas to its full fibre rollout plan. For the first time, Truespeed is expanding its network to South Gloucestershire areas where it has added Thornbury, Almondsbury, Bradley Stoke, Patchway, Stoke Gifford and Chipping Sodbury to its remit. In Bath, Truespeed is expanding its footprint in Bathwick, Widcombe and Combe Down. Alongside this, Truespeed is also adding the North Somerset areas of Uphill, Banwell and Sandford which are located to the South and East of Weston Super Mare, to its full fibre network.
Improving connectivity throughout the South West, Truespeed’s latest investment is set to bring guaranteed speed, ultrafast and ultra-reliable broadband to a further 43,000 properties across the region. Thanks to its full fibre technology, Truespeed delivers guaranteed, symmetrical upload and download speeds of up to 900Mbps for residential customers and 10Gbps for business users. As a customer-centric provider, Truespeed has frozen prices until May 2023, offers a 30-day money back guarantee and has a Bath based call centre that aims to answer calls within 30 seconds.
Planning and building works are well underway and Truespeed’s build model ensures that customers can be connected to its service as building progresses throughout 2023. In line with its network expansion, Truespeed has scaled up its operations and now employs over 200 people directly in the local area alongside creating additional work for its contractor partners.
James Lowther, CEO of Truespeed, commented: “Access to reliable, ultrafast broadband plays an essential role in everyday life and we’re pleased to be rolling out our ultrafast full fibre network to more homes and businesses than ever before. By investing in multiple communities across the South West including Thornbury, Stoke Gifford, Chipping Sodbury and Banwell to name just a few, we’re providing an enormous upgrade to a vital modern day utility. Truespeed is working tirelessly to improve connectivity throughout the region and we’re excited to continue the rapid expansion of our ultrafast network.”
