Community-focused ISP Lit Fibre expands network in new towns, as 350,000 homes set to benefit from 1Gb speeds

Community-focused ISP Lit Fibre has expanded its network into five new towns, providing local communities with a faster, more reliable, and consistent broadband service.

More than 150,000 homes across St Albans, Chelmsford, Welwyn Garden City, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Potters Bar will soon have access to a 10Gb capable network from Lit Fibre. Installation is already well underway and, once live, residents will be able to order their full-fibre broadband service from a choice of symmetrical 100Mb, 500Mb or 1Gb packages. Residents who register their interest via will receive additional discounts on their introductory prices.

This brings the total number of homes that are set to benefit from the service to more than 350,000 across 17 towns, which also include Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Redditch, Melksham, Harpenden, Sutton Coldfield, Chippenham, Cirencester, Evesham, Clacton-on-Sea, Bishops Stortford & Sudbury.


Tom Williams, CEO of Lit Fibre, said: “There is a clear need for speed within these towns and we are working to supercharge the communities with our full-fibre network. Residents want the freedom to move away from the incumbents offering substandard services at unaffordable prices so by switching to Lit Fibre, residents can finally experience the freedom to do more online thanks to our full-fibre infrastructure. Technology requirements have vastly changed within the last decade, with multiple devices being used at any one time and a growing number of household appliances functioning through Wi-Fi. We want to help meet these demands with the latest technologies and a best-in-class customer service experience, rated 5 stars on Trustpilot.”

Lit Fibre is committed to working with local communities and its most recent project involves a long-term partnership with FC Clacton, giving the stadium a revamp with a raft of improvements, working with Bishops Stortford and Hockerill Scout Group to provide support to the local community through the provision of free wi-fi and a partnership with Chippenham FC to provide support to the youth team and the visitors and fans with free wi-fi access at the stadium.
