Wales’ freshest broadband comes to Pembrokeshire
Tuesday 6 July, 2021. Cardiff, Wales. Wales’ fastest growing broadband company, is announcing today that work is now underway to bring full fibre broadband to Haverfordwest. The town in Pembrokeshire will be one of the first three communities in Wales to benefit from top-speed, future-proof broadband from Ogi.
The engineering work, which has started on St Martins’ Park and around Highlands Avenue, will create an all-new fibre optic cable network throughout the town. That means that homes and local businesses will very soon benefit from one of the best broadband experiences anywhere on the planet. This is just the start of Ogi’s mission to bring real full fibre broadband for better experiences, for better opportunities and for better lives.
“Over the last 18 months, we’ve witnessed all kinds of experiences reinvented digitally, from working and learning to wellbeing. So with access to ultrafast broadband, all kinds of new opportunities become possible for the people of Pembrokeshire,” says Councillor Paul Miller, Cabinet Member for Economy, Tourism, Leisure & Culture at Pembrokeshire County Council. “We’re very excited to be partnering with Ogi, who we feel share our vision and mission to establish Pembrokeshire as one of the best digitally connected counties in the country. This is a really exciting development.”
Haverfordwest, like so many Welsh communities, has simply not been getting the broadband it deserves, so that’s where the transformation begins. Full fibre broadband is much faster, more reliable and way more sustainable than traditional services. Ogi is specifically targeting underserved areas, accelerating the pace of full fibre roll out across south Wales – and transforming the digital landscape for generations to come. As work begins in Pembrokeshire, sister projects are also starting in The Vale of Glamorgan and Abergavenny.
Ogi’s offering is ultrafast and ultra reliable – up to an incredible 900 Mbps. That’s thirty-two times faster than the current average typical speed for Haverfordwest, at just 27.61 Mbps.
“Local residents in Haverfordwest will see Ogi Engineers over the next few weeks as we create a brand new, all-fibre network in the area that wildly surpasses what came before. Our friendly Ogi team will also be around, answering questions and helping residents discover what real fibre broadband can do for them,” said Sally-Anne Skinner, Chief Revenue Officer at Ogi. “I’d encourage everyone to ask lots of questions and to register their interest so they can be among the first to receive ultrafast Ogi broadband”.
“Made and built in Wales for Wales. We’re working on making ‘full fibre’ real and relevant for every person who joins our service, by bringing new experiences to life: we’ll be the internet promise that delivers. Gamers will game. Zoomers will zoom. Businesses will grow. Everyone getting on with what they need to,” said Ben Allwright, CEO of Ogi. “We’re totally committed to helping every Welsh community build back better,” he added. “Everyone prospers when brilliant broadband delivers real opportunities, resilience and sustainability, and we have big ambitions to see Wales flourish.”
