London’s ISP has also created 1,000 jobs over the last year

Community Fibre has announced it has doubled the number of London homes enabled with its 100 per cent full-fibre broadband to over 200,000 and increased its customer base by 130 per cent in one year.

Community Fibre has reinstated its commitment to facilitate a better internet for all London communities, aiming to connect 1 million London properties by the end of 2023 with its affordable, faster, more reliable broadband.

London’s ISP has recently signed master wayleave agreements with three additional London boroughs, including Hackney Council, Barnet Council, and Lambeth Council, enabling Community Fibre to roll out its full-fibre broadband network to an extra 85,000 new properties in the coming months.

Residents living in those premises will be able to benefit from gigabit-capable internet connectivity once the installation of Community Fibre’s network will be completed.

Community Fibre CEO Graeme Oxby said: “2020 was without a doubt an unprecedented and difficult year for many. Despite this, our teams have worked hard to provide high-quality, 100 per cent full-fibre broadband to London communities. 

“As a London-based company, we are proud to have reached this new milestone today and will keep pursuing our efforts to provide better connectivity to those who need it the most and connect up to a million properties across the city by 2023. 

“These rollouts will not only cover social housing and large blocks of flats, our primary focus in the past but also include individual properties and terraced houses.”

Community Fibre has created 1,000 jobs in London over the past year and enables residents and businesses to enjoy speeds up to 3Gbps or 10Gbps respectively with 99.99 per cent uptime and lower costs.
