Community Fibre has now enabled 100,000 premises with its full-fibre broadband network. The buildings are located across 16 of London’s 33 boroughs, with 84 per cent of these premises being social housing.
Over 70 per cent of social housing in the London Borough of Wandsworth now have Community Fibre’s full-fibre broadband, followed by 57 per cent in the London Borough of Southwark.
Graeme Oxby, CEO, Community Fibre, said, “Several of London’s largest landlords now have more than a third of their properties connected to our full-fibre network. London’s landlords can now, at no cost to themselves, increase this figure while supporting the UK’s broadband ambition to reach its target of bringing fast, reliable and secure broadband to the UK as soon as possible.”
“Our mission is to bring faster and cheaper broadband to Londoners, and especially to those that would benefit the most from it by working with housing providers and local councils. We believe in engaging with our local communities – we actively aim to recruit locally, we offer residents digital skills training and provide free wifi in local community centres to have a positive social impact.”
