Henley broadband speeds Zzoomm to 2Gb/s

Share this on social media:

UK broadband network operator, Zzoomm has switched on its fastest full-fibre broadband service in Henley-on-Thames.

Set up last year by founder and former CEO of Gigaclear, Matthew Hare, Zzoomm’s ambition is to provide more than a million homes and businesses in under-served towns and suburbs across the UK with full-fibre by 2025. The Henley community is set to benefit from download speeds of 2Gb/s, with fibre running directly into the property. Meanwhile, two hubs provide either extended wi fi coverage across the home or a free second broadband service of 100Mb/s in the home. Adtran’s 10G Symmetric XGS PON portfolio will be leveraged to initially offer up to 2Gb/s symmetric residential services.

To address the challenges associated with those older homes built with materials that can block wi fi signals, the company will offer multiple services where Adtran SmartRG residential gateways are used to extend coverage. In addition, at the core of the full-fibre network is Adtran’s Total Access 5000 (TA5000), which allows Zzoomm to easily scale services by upgrading the switch fabric to 100G, ensuing the network is future-proofed for customers.

Zzoomm’s founder and chief executive, Matthew Hare said: ‘Life’s too short for bad broadband. Homes in Henley-on-Thames can now access broadband speeds of up to 2Gb/s. Henley-on-Thames is a tech-savvy town with a great digital community, many remote workers and a mix of population demographics. Our full-fibre network provides the infrastructure needed to ensure that every person gets the optimised broadband experience they crave, both today and in the future.

Stuart Broome, vice president of international sales at Adtran added: ‘Zzoomm is taking the UK a giant step forward with its full-fibre service roll out, making 10G a reality for residential customers. Adtran prides itself on being able to help any carrier, architect, plan, build, provision and manage their best network, and we’re pleased to have been able to play such a key role in Zzoomm’s network design and deployment.’
