This week saw new company Freedom Fibre begin work on a major investment programme designed to turbo-charge Wrexham’s full fibre broadband network.
Much of the county borough’s broadband is still reliant on copper phoneline-based technology, but full-fibre means that residents and business are able to get internet speeds of up to 1,000mb/s.
Freedom Fibre hopes its first customers will be able to connect to the network from this winter.
Speaking alongside Cllr David A Bithell, Deputy Leader of Wrexham Council, and Cllr Nigel Williams, Lead Member for Economy and Regneration, Cllr Mark Pritchard, Leader of the Council, said: “This represents a fantastic investment in Wrexham’s digital infrastructure and is very much welcomed by Wrexham Council. Creating a network that future-proofs Wrexham city centre and the whole county borough as well as giving residents a choice of full-fibre providers, which is very important.”
Marie Danby, customer operations director at Freedom Fibre, says: “This mutli-million-pound investment in Wrexham’s digital infrastructure will not only future-proof the county ahead of the switch-off of the copper network, but will make Wrexham one of the best-connected places in Great Britain.”Take part in our survey
