Bath – 25 August 2022 – Bath-based full fibre broadband provider Truespeed has enhanced its network infrastructure to utilise XGS-PON technology as it continues the rapid expansion of its ultrafast network.
Improving its already state-of-the-art full fibre infrastructure, Truespeed is now deploying 10Gbps XGS-PON network technology as it continues to ramp up its South West rollout. Deployment of the new infrastructure has already begun and will continue to be rolled out as standard across all future build areas. Thorough testing of the Adtran XGS-PON solution on the Truespeed infrastructure has been a resounding success, and the first customers in Peasedown St John are currently live on the new network.
Following a record year of growth since its additional £100m investment in January 2022, the rollout of XGS-PON technology will allow Truespeed to build and connect customers to its network at a significantly faster rate. In conjunction with maximising network growth, it better guarantees timescales between customer sign up and connection, reduces the number of above ground cabinets, enables greater future network expansion and significantly improves network build efficiencies.
Offering the same superior online experience as its existing ultrafast network, the new technology allows more customers to be connected via a reduced equipment base. As a result, more residents and businesses can benefit from Truespeed’s broadband that delivers guaranteed symmetrical uploads and downloads, around-the-clock reliability and speeds of up to 900Mbps for residential customers, and up to 10Gbps for business customers. Unfaltering in its commitment to provide futureproof broadband, Truespeed’s XGS-PON network continues to provide full fibre connectivity customers can rely on, without the fear of drop outs and the added peace of mind that their future online needs are already taken care of.
James Lowther, Truespeed CEO commented, “Utilising XGS-PON is a huge step forward for Truespeed as we continue on our mission to improve connectivity throughout the South West. We’re rolling out our network faster than ever before, and this step-change in technology will enable us to deliver our substantial growth plans in the most time and cost effective manner whilst providing the best possible customer service.”
Ronan Kelly, Adtran EMEA CTO commented, “The vision demonstrated by the Truespeed team is refreshing. Not only have they recognised the technology benefits that the Adtran XGS-PON solution brings. From the beginning they have had a very clear vision of the environmental benefits that this technology can deliver to their business, and how it can accelerate their deployment schedule by concentrating more customers across fewer equipment locations. Insights that many others would do well to pay attention to.”
