TrueSpeed full fibre maps updated

TrueSpeed continues to expand its rural full fibre service which sees people recording speed tests like this 284 Mbps down and 222 Mbps result on an iPhone, the footprint that we have tracked has just been updated to some 3,372 premises.

As is common with rural postcodes you get a lot more dots on the map compared to the same number of premises, since rural postcodes generally have a lot less premises per postcode than urban areas.

We look forward to seeing more of the speed test results from TrueSpeed customers in new areas as this is how we invariably know they have moved down the road to the next village.


Good news, but it's a race between them and Gigaclear whose activity is on

Is the footprint purely from tests or from Truespeed?

Tests are a trigger to then check around that area and other sreas we have heard they are building out to

In some of the local villages, such as Compton Martin, Gigaclear is trenching the road directly underneath Truespeed's overhead fibre. For those with long memories, or Jacob Rees-Mogg (whose village is connected to Truespeed), it's like the Victorian railway boom.

It's super, all lower case.

Looking at it looks like Gigaclear and Truespeed are having a race down the A38 from the south Bristol boundary down past Bristol Airport.

You calculate 3382 premises. Yet Truespeed claim 1000's of residents have the service. You show connections only in a limited area south of Bristol yet Truespeed claim they are through the South West. Facebook shows an Truespeeds approval rating of a dreadful 2.7 out of 5. Perhaps Truespeed would like to comment!

I have been a satisfied user of Truespeed for nearly a year. I have had download speeds of upto 220Mbps, have had two outages, one reputedly because an undergound cable was accidentally damaged.

I was kept informed during both outages by texr messages to my mobile.

So pretty good so far.

One complaint is the original router Truespeed supplied was built very much down to a price it seems, wifi woeful. I am told they now supply a better one. be nice if it was retro fitted or at least offered.
