Answers to all your questions about Ogi.
What does Ogi do?
We provide full fibre broadband services – described as real fibre – to homes and businesses across Wales, and some parts of England. Full fibre is a fibre optic broadband connection directly to your home or business and is also known as FTTP or Fibre To The Premise connectivity. We also provide some other connectivity solutions, including connectivity and support services to businesses in Wales.
Why have you changed your name?
Spectrum Internet and Net Support UK became part of the Spectrum Fibre group in 2020 – when the company secured cornerstone investment to deliver a full fibre broadband network across south Wales. We wanted a name that reflected the company’s new ambition to build a full fibre network that will transform the ability of people in south Wales to connect with each other and the world for generations to come. We have also updated Net Support UK’s registered name to Ogi Networks Limited.
In Wales, Ogi’s a word that never fails to bring a smile or a response. Ogi is a chant we learn from when we’re small. We associate it with life’s happy times, anywhere people are gathered and want to express our unity and joy. It has a touch of nostalgia, but for us, it’s all about a better-connected future. That’s why we chose Ogi as our name: it connects people, immediately.

Our community fibre builds
We’re hitting the road – here are some things you might want to know…
How do you decide where to build your network?
Our aim is to connect towns and villages across south Wales, prioritising areas that are commercially viable (or voucher eligible) and not served by other companies for now.
Our first phase will see us build to 150,000 premises, but we hope to scale this up considerably over the coming years.
We continually review our plans based on a number of factors and the details of our next phase of build areas will be available on in the ‘For communities’ section of our website. You can also sign-up online to receive regular updates and news from us about our future plans.
Will I get notified if Ogi is building in my area?
We will attempt to speak to you and let everyone living in an area know that we are coming. Customers that are directly affected by the build will also receive a formal letter from Ogi and our contractors letting you know what to expect, and when.
Where will I find details of road closures?
We will provide information in the local community of any planned road closures, following appropriate processes. There will be several communication boards locally showing the start and finish times of the work being carried out. There will also be an on-site supervisor who will be on-site every day. They will be able to answer any questions you may have about our build.
Please also look out for our friendly engagement teams in your community.
How do you gain access to connect my property if I live on a private road?
If you live on a private road, our engineer will give you a call to gain access to your property and to discuss any specific requirements you may have with you.
What happens if there is any damage caused to property?
If an engineer has caused any damage to your property, they will inform their local Team Manager who will discuss the next course of action with you.
If the damage has been caused by our team, we will normally arrange the repair to take place and pay for the damage caused, but this will need to be reviewed by our team and cannot be guaranteed.
If you notice any damage that has been caused and the engineer has left the property, please contact Customer Care on 029 2002 0550 who will be happy to help.
Is the equipment for the network installation building work meant to be left at site?
Equipment will usually be removed from site, however there may be occasions when it needs to be left on site for a short period. This is perfectly normal and does not pose any risks the public. If you do see something that concerns you please contact Customer Care on 029 2002 0550.
