For the past three years, Freedom Fibre has been building its full-fibre network in the towns of Weaverham, Northwich, Comberbach, and Hartford, providing affordable full-fibre broadband to homes and businesses in the area. As it stands, approximately 25,000 homes in these areas now have access to the UK’s fastest and most reliable broadband network*, with available speeds of up to 1000MB/s.

For residents of these towns, Freedom Fibre’s full-fibre network will help support the increasing digital advancement of these areas, particularly as the UK government moves towards a complete replacement of the current legacy network, with the aim of “switching off” the copper broadband network by 2030.

Whilst speeds of up to 1000Mb/s may seem unnecessary to some, a full-fibre broadband network is integral to keeping residents of Weaverham, Northwich, Comberbach and Hartford connected to vital resources that are being moved online, including banking and healthcare.

Furthermore, research indicates that access to a full-fibre broadband connection can augment a property's value by up to £5000^. Additionally, working from home, made more feasible and efficient by the implementation of a full-fibre broadband network, can save the average UK worker up to £500 per monthᶧ. Although the installation of the infrastructure may cause a brief period of disruption, the long-term benefits for residents are substantial.

In addition, homes and businesses have access to a choice of several different internet service providers on the Freedom Fibre network, including TalkTalk, Squirrel Internet, IP River, and Fusion Fibre Group. These service providers all offer different packages at

different price points, ensuring that full-fibre broadband is accessible to everyone, no matter their bandwidth needs.
