At WightFibre we provide a different kind of broadband – full-fibre, ultrafast and future-proof. Our full-fibre broadband is of a ‘point to point’ design which means every connected home gets its own dedicated fibre optic connection – so no sharing with your neighbours. This makes the Isle of Wight one of the best-connected places in the world with some of the world’s fastest broadband speeds, with upload speeds the same as download speeds. Already over 32,000 homes on the Island can receive our different kind of broadband and this is set to rise to over 60,000 by 2022.
But we don’t stop at simply providing some of the world’s fastest broadband. As a local Isle of Wight company, we deliver the best possible customer service and all our staff work and live on the Island. We care about our customers.
At WightFibre we care about our Island community too. Our Connected Communities Programme provides broadband and WiFi to charities, community centres, village halls, scout huts and sports clubs across the Island.
