Flomatik Network Services are delighted to have been selected as Planning and Design partner, subject to contract, for the Portsmouth based alternative network ISP, toob.

Securing £75m funding through Amber Investment Group, toob announced yesterday its £50m planned investment in Southampton, embarking on the deployment of its Full Fibre network.  toob is aiming to have its first customers connected to its symmetrical, 900Mbps capable broadband network by the end of 2019 – growing to 100,000 premises within the next 2 years. And that’s just the beginning, toob’s long term ambition is to pass in excess of 1 million homes and businesses over the next 10 years.

Ben Allwright, CEO of Flomatik Network Services, said “We’re thrilled to be selected as toob’s partner to plan and design Gigabit FttX networks in their first selected city, Southampton. Along with conventional construction, we’ll be working with toob to leverage the latest Openreach sharing remedies, using Openreach’s existing ducts and poles (PIA) where possible. In addition to build efficiencies, Openreach PIA will enable toob to accelerate the network rollout to more people and businesses. Flomatik welcomes toob to the growing Altnet community and looks forward to becoming a Full Fibre customer in the near future”

Nick Parbutt, CEO of toob, said “I am delighted to be working with Flomatik. We have exciting plans for Southampton to deploy our network and bring the benefits of full fibre to consumers, businesses and the broader community. We selected Flomatik for their undoubted expertise in this sector and being at the forefront of supporting companies like toob, who are looking to utilise Openreach’s infrastructure to lower costs and speed up network deployment. I look forward to building a successful partnership with Flomatik.”

For just £25 per month, toob will be offering 900Mbps average upload and download speeds to residential customers with unlimited usage and no line rental charges – the most competitive consumer gigabit broadband service in the UK.
