Harrow Council has partnered with advanced tech broadband company, Community Fibre, to roll out London’s largest and fastest 100% full fibre broadband across the borough.
The installation work has already started on Northolt Road, South Harrow, and will continue onto Osmond Close, where residents are set to reap the benefits of full-fibre broadband at the ‘most affordable cost’. The installation will continue over the next several years across Harrow connecting thousands of properties across the borough.
Community Fibre will also provide a free 1,000 Mbps 100% full fibre broadband connection to Grange Farm Community Centre and Northolt Road Community Centre. The free high-quality connection will provide visitors with the opportunity to ‘seamlessly take part in both work and leisure activities.’
Cllr Mina Parmar, Portfolio Holder for Housing at Harrow Council commented: “We welcome Community Fibre’s commitment to delivering fast, reliable fibre broadband to the residents here in Harrow. A reliable internet connection is vital for those seeking new job opportunities or wanting to book GP services online, and we’re delighted to see fibre broadband now become more accessible to all at an affordable rate.”
Graeme Oxby, CEO of Community Fibre, added: “At Community Fibre, we believe that everyone should have access to the best internet to ensure growth and greater opportunities for all. Closing the digital divide is our priority. Therefore, we are focused on accelerating our full fibre rollout to facilitate better internet for everyone supported by our Community Investments and Digital Ambassadors programme.
“We are pleased to be working with Harrow Council to bring London’s fastest internet to its residents at the best prices, which has held a 4.9 ‘Excellent’ Trust Pilot score and 96% 5-star reviews (September) for the past three years.”
Community Fibre says that its mission is to “deliver 100% full fibre broadband to all of the London communities it serves, helping to provide residents with opportunities for education, training, employment, social inclusion, and community projects.”
Harrow businesses will also be able to access 100% full fibre connectivity with business broadband package speeds up to 10,000 Mbps. More information about its business packages can be found here.
