East Sussex-based independent Full Fibre network builder, operator and ISP Lightning Fibre has launched its symmetric Full Fibre network in Hailsham for over 5,000 more homes and businesses.
Ben Ferriman, Lightning Fibre’s Founder and CEO, commented, “We’re delighted to expand our local network to Hailsham. We are ahead of schedule and hope to complete the whole town by the end of 2022. That will mean over 10,000 homes and businesses can, at last, say goodbye to rubbish broadband! Our full fibre network is hyper fast and hyper reliable.”
Hailsham Mayor, Councillor Paul Holbrook, cut the ribbon on the new primary node cabinet and added, “I have been very impressed by Ben and his team. Lightning Fibre have engaged proactively with local Councillors, looking into complaints promptly and resolving matters that inevitably arise with a project of this scale. This new network is fantastic for our town.”
Lightning Fibre are sponsoring Environment Hailsham and Hailsham bonfire Society, and have created a partnership with Hailsham Active to support better community spaces and grassroots sports initiatives in the town. The company has recently revealed it is the new Digital Partner for the Hailsham Festival and sponsor of the ‘Virtual Art Gallery’ project.
As well as being more reliable and much faster than copper/fibre hybrid networks, this new Full Fibre optic network is also cheaper; current prices are just £24 per month for 100Mbps symmetric speeds. The firm offers the fastest domestic broadband available in East Sussex, with a blistering 900Mbps symmetric speeds guaranteed at the modem for just £44 per month. That’s over 20 times faster than the average download speeds for the area.
Research shows that as well as being ‘greener’, once an area has a symmetric full fibre network, property prices and local economies are positively impacted. Lightning Fibre is building high quality networks across Sussex, creating hundreds quality local jobs and delivering a high-quality service at an affordable and competitive price.
