Fibrus, the Full Fibre broadband provider, has announced that more than 3,000 homes and businesses across the wider Ballymena area are now connectable to gigabit capable broadband services.
The village of Ahoghill sees over 1,500 premises being made connectable with a further 1,700 live in Broughshane.
Highlighting the significance of the latest developments, Colin Hutchinson, Chief Financial Officer at Fibrus, said:
“Fibrus is committed to improving connectivity in rural and regional communities, having already extended our network to over 300,000 premises in Northern Ireland and the north of England.
“We aim to enhance the lives of residents in underserved areas, addressing longstanding connectivity challenges.
"The introduction of Full Fibre broadband services across Antrim and towns such as Ahoghill and Broughshane will have a positive impact on the daily experiences of locals, redefining the way families and businesses go about their lives.”
“We are thrilled that even more communities are benefiting from our revolutionary network. Fibrus is committed to reshaping the broadband landscape, bridging the digital divide and empowering communities with enhanced connectivity, fostering growth, prosperity and digital inclusion.”
Paul Frew MLA expressed his support for the expanded broadband coverage.
“The rollout of Fibrus’ Full Fibre broadband in Ahoghill and Broughshane, along with other communities across North Antrim and Northern Ireland, will have a transformational impact on the daily lives of local residents, farmers and businesses by providing them with a reliable and secure broadband connection,” he said.
Fibrus has demonstrated its support for communities this year by investing £60,000 in Northern Ireland in 2023 through the Fibrus Community Fund, which aims to tackle digital poverty across the region. This sits alongside a new grassroots sports club fund, Play it Forward, which invested £50,000 and supported almost 50 sports clubs, including Broughshane’s Raceview Ladies FC.
Additionally, Fibrus recently teamed up with eero, an Amazon company, offering their award-winning routers to customers, which provide exceptional Wi-Fi, lightning-fast broadband speed, and allows Fibrus to offer a Total Home Wi-Fi guarantee.
