Ben Allwright, Managing Director
In late 2017, Flomatik was awarded a contract as TalkTalk’s Network Planning partner for York’s Ultra Fibre Optic program.
Having successfully completed an initial build phase in York passing ~16,000 premises, and with a solid and growing base of customers, TalkTalk’s objective is to complete the fibre rollout, adding approximately 40,000 further premises.
Flomatik is supporting TalkTalk’s ambition to be a disruptive and challenging force in the UK full-fibre broadband market. As an experienced planning partner, Flomatik is working with TalkTalk to drive down cost and complexity during the planning and build phases, leveraging the latest Ofcom remedies, planning software innovations and construction techniques.
Following initial consultancy, which helped TalkTalk to develop their technical approaches, plan and specifications, Flomatik is undertaking all network planning works in York and supporting TalkTalk’s build partner in the delivery of a class-leading Next Generation, 1Gbps Ultra Fibre Optic network in the city.
Paul Crane, Head of Ultrafast Engagement and Rollout for TalkTalk, commented: “We are very pleased with the success of UFO in York so far. Our customers are amazed at what they can do with their ultrafast connections – streaming HD TV without buffering, playing games in real time with people on the other side of the world, or simply enabling every member of the family to be online at the same time.”
