Henley-on-Thames announced as first Zzoomm full fibre town

6,800 premises in Henley-on-Thames are set to see full fibre appear from new entrant Zzoomm with the roll-out starting at the end of summer 2019 and completing in the second half of 2020.

We’re delighted to be launching our network in Henley, a vibrant town with a strong community. Zzoomm's new full fibre network brings a new competitive offering for both homes and businesses, delivering more choice, more speed and more opportunity.

Our full fibre will offer from 100Mbps to 10Gbps, so you can pick the speed that suits you, leaving behind the limitations of the old copper network.

Henley’s home to lots of creative and entrepreneurial businesses and business people. Full fibre means more opportunities for those businesses to harness new technology, cloud computing and home working.

And we are making Henley our home too. We want to give our customers the best possible experience and to build a partnership with the local community in Henley. So we will be opening an office and recruiting teams locally. Full fibre for Henley from Zzoomm means more jobs in Henley.

Matthew Hare, Zzoomm’s Chief Executive

The quote from Matthew Hare seems to cover everything other than the price of the services, which no doubt we will discover once the first premises are passed. Opting to recruit and use its own labour for construction and maintenance highlights wider industry concerns that exist around quality of work some subcontractors deliver and this may give Zzoomm greater control on work standards, ensuring that local residents and councils remain onboard i.e. avoiding negative press coverage due to poor streetworks. It is also possible that with a more local face, that landlords may be more willing to co-operate with regard to wayleaves to ensure that flats and shared office buildings do not miss out.
