Trooli launches full fibre service in Kent
Another full fibre roll-out announcement and the current rate of announcements needs to continue if we are to reach a 15 million full fibre premises passed target in 2025.
Today has Call Flow Solutions revealing the new brand Trooli that is the face for its ultrafast full fibre service, coverage is in King's Hill and Paddock Wood areas of Kent, and while Mark over at ISPreview beat us by a few hours, we have in that time got their packages added to our listings and added coverage data to our postcode search and stats site and our broadband maps.
There are three consumer packages
- 300 Mbps download and 100 Mbps upload £50/m
- 500 Mbps download and 200 Mbps upload £60/m
- 1000 Mbps download and 300 Mbps upload £80/m
18 month contracts apply and the setup cost is £80 which covers getting the fibre from roadside fibre pot to the outside wall of your property and includes a kit so that you can run this fibre to the location you want. If drilling a hole in an outside wall and routing the fibre indoors is something you are not confident about then an indoor install option adds an extra £120 to the setup cost. While keen DIY people will be happy using the appropriate type of drill for the wall construction and identifying electric and water utilities in the wall plus also not causing damp problems e.g. minimum height for hole and a drip loop so water is not carried into the inner wall of a property, we can imagine a lot of people needing the full install.
What makes the roll-out more interesting is that they are utilising Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA), therefore renting duct and pole space from Openreach to avoid a lot of disruption in the area.
The future looks likely to involve expansion of around 1,000 premises per month, so hopefully we will be able to keep a track of that and show how the footprint is going.
