YouFibre, the ultrafast and ultra-affordable internet provider, has today announced that it has connected its first customer in Frome, a town and civil parish located in Somerset.
Frome, located 13 miles south of Bath, was named by The Times as the 2021 “Best Place to Live” in the Southwest. It has an estimated population of over 28,000 residents and is renowned for its historic architecture and cobbled streets. Frome was a centre of the cloth trade in mediaeval times and today its markets and creative industries are a key feature of the town and contribute to its recognition for strong community spirit and entertainment.
YouFibre, which offers speeds of up to 10,000Mbps compared to the average of 79.1Mpbs, marked the occasion with a presentation of champagne and a year’s free broadband for the lucky customer. YouFibre also presented the customer with a year’s free YouMesh solution, which enables full Wi-Fi coverage in every room of the house.
Helena Wittchow, YouFibre’s first customer in Frome, commented: “We have been on the lookout for ultrafast internet speeds, more so since I run my own business from home and needing a fast and reliable internet connection for communicating with clients, carrying out research, holding workshops and bookkeeping has been of a great importance to us. I’ve had connectivity issues with my previous provider, so when the YouFibre salesperson knocked on my door and presented us with all the benefits, alongside the affordable pricing, the decision was extremely easy. The YouFibre team has been brilliant in getting everything set up for us and since the installation, everyone in the house has been able to stream and download without delay – or argument.”
Ryan Battle, Managing Director of YouFibre, commented: “Being able to provide full fibre broadband to towns like Frome is exactly what we are about at YouFibre. Ultrafast broadband should be accessible to everyone and we’re happy to be continually providing our services at affordable prices to residents and businesses throughout the country, not limiting it to big cities.
“Frome has previously been limited to median broadband speeds of 67Mbps, but YouFibre’s latest move into the town will provide a massive boost of up to 10,000Mbps which is an extraordinary step up.”
YouFibre offers a range of packages, starting at £22 per month with an average speed of 50Mbps, increasing to £45 per month for ultrafast broadband services, with speeds of up to 10,000Mbps.
YouFibre’s customers have given them an impressive 4.7 ‘Excellent’ rating on Trustpilot, with one of the most recent commenting: “Installation was simple and hassle free and the installers were extremely polite and helpful. We're achieving the speeds that were promised and now have reliable internet access right through the house which we weren't getting with our previous supplier. I would have no hesitation in recommending YouFibre.”
