LightSpeed names next five locations set for fibre

Lincolnshire-based LightSpeed Broadband has named the next five locations set to receive fibre through its rollout in Essex and Norfolk.

The five new towns are Braintree, Halstead, Harwich and Manningtree in Essex and Fakenham in Norfolk, and are in addition to its original ten ‘wave two’ build locations which are Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea, Maldon and Witham in Essex; Cromer, Dereham, Hunstanton, Sheringham and Thetford in Norfolk, and Stowmarket in Suffolk. 

LightSpeed began its regional build in April with ten ‘wave one’ locations and has since expanded its team. The altnet plans to reach one million homes and businesses by 2025.

CEO Steve Haines, said: “Our aim is to become the East of England’s leading broadband provider and to focus investment on the region, in towns where there has been little infrastructure built by other operators.

“We have also created a new headquarters right at the heart of our region, in South Lincolnshire to provide a locally based, first class customer experience.”
