The newly named OFNL has been connecting and operating next-generation fibre optic networks to new-build residential and commercial developments across the UK since 2008. OFNL’s Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks deliver a future-proofed telecoms infrastructure, ensuring customers enjoy a market-leading voice, ultra-fast broadband and television service. Fibre networks from OFNL are completely open access, with speeds of up to 1Gb/s. The company actively encourages service providers to join its network, so it can provide customers with a range of choice for their broadband services. Andrew Robinson, Commercial Operations Director at OFNL, said: “We entered the market in response to growing market concerns around the long delays customers were experiencing when subscribing to broadband services when moving into their new homes. We now provide a real alternative to traditional players in the market and offer a full Fibre-to-the-Home network solution that provides a cost- effective alternative for house builders, as well as a more efficient and hassle-free installation and a better overall experience for residents. It seems fitting that our brand should reflect this and we are proud to now be known as Open Fibre Networks Ltd.” n THE COMPANY ACTIVELY ENCOURAGES SERVICE PROVIDERS TO JOIN ITS NETWORK, SO IT CAN PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WITH A RANGE OF CHOICE FOR THEIR BROADBAND SERVICES.
