Alan O’Prey, managing director at Netomnia, said: “We’re looking forward to our rollout expansion in Bamber Bridge, providing residents and businesses with access to ultrafast broadband during a time when so much of our everyday lives is centred around the internet. By laying the foundations for an ultrafast, reliable connection, we’re opening up the possibilities for further employment and prosperity into the local area.”

Netomnia secured £123m in funding to support its rollout strategy at the end of 2021 and aims to reach one million premises by 2023.

Netomnia makes wholesale connectivity available to Internet Service Providers, building the infrastructure for their broadband services. Its network supports symmetrical (equal upload and download speeds) multi-gigabit services up to 10 Gbps (10,000 Mbps) using XGS-PON technology; this means ISPs using Netomnia’s network will be able to offer their customers reliable ultrafast speeds for decades to come.
