wightfibrewoottonhome2Working in partnership with the developer of 10 new homes in Wootton, WightFibre has achieved another first for the Island and a sign of things to come, in providing 1000mb broadband by laying fibre optic cable directly into the home.

With fibre to the homes and through the use of state of the art WiFi technology and in wall cabling, ‘full fibre’ broadband from WightFibre will deliver speeds of 1,000Mb across the homes on this new development. A demonstration of the power of WightFibre’s cable network when compared to the twisted copper pairs of BT’s ageing Island network.

The Wiltons is a brand new development of 10 stunning 2 and 3 bedroom homes in Wootton, nestled on its own private cul-de-sac in the heart of the village. Homes on this desirable yet highly affordable development have a contemporary, quality look and feel with en-suite master bedrooms, great sized flexible accommodation, private off-road parking and gardens.

This first enables anyone buying one of these exclusive homes to be able download films within seconds, watch catch-up TV in multiple rooms and have no slowdowns or interruptions even at peak time if they choose.

Pete Collinge, Sales Director at WightFibre comments:

“We have always had a reputation of pushing the boundaries of communications across the Island and this is another first that will allow owners of these new properties to receive the full fibre experience and endless online possibilities as never before.”

Aside from 1000Mb Broadband and the private yet convenient location, these great new homes have a number of other features that add to their appeal. Their ‘growing room’ house design provides more flexible living space and pre-planned space to be added – giving flexibility to growing families and adding future value to the homes.

In addition, homes at The Wiltons are available as a conventional purchase but also through the Governments ‘Help to Buy’ scheme; helping young working professional families get their foot on the housing market and making the monthly mortgage payment, a lot less than they would pay for rent.

Wootton Estate Agents are managing sales of the properties and Ben Williams, Director of Wootton Estate Agents adds:

“I have been extremely pleased by the interest we have already had in this quality local development; with 5 out of the 6 properties in phase 1 already under offer.  I feel that this success is down to the large, modern sleek style of the properties, located in a very popular and convenient location and represent very good value for money.  The words ‘superb opportunity’ can be overused in estate agency, but this development really is.

“The option of the 1000Mb broadband has been part of our sales features as we now live in a digital age where internet speeds are now becoming a more essential consideration to anyone purchasing a home.”

Home owners and business across the Island have a lot to look forward to from WightFibre as their entire cable network is upgraded to deliver speeds up to 1,000Mb by 2020. Upgrades that are due to start across the network in 2018. In the meantime, WightFibre’s existing cable broadband speeds are still twice those of BT.
