As of August's end, Fibrus said it has expanded its network to cover 300,000 homes, of which 273,000 homes are now ready to be connected to Full Fibre broadband. Fibrus had previously announced reaching a quarter of a million homes back in March as reported by TelecomTalk.

Fibrus attributes this customer surge to a growing confidence and momentum surrounding the Fibrus brand. The company aims to deliver Full Fibre broadband to rural and regional UK areas, with their customer base tripling within a year.

Total Home Wi-Fi Solution

Fibrus also highlighted its recent launch of Total Home Wi-Fi product, a partnership with Amazon-owned eero, which aims to provide seamless Wi-Fi coverage throughout homes, paired with guaranteed speeds and price stability during the contract term.

Speedy Network Delivery

The company said its growth can also be attributed to the high speed of network delivery, as seen in the speedy connection of the first homes in the UK's Project Gigabit procurement in Cumbria. According to the company's statement, customer penetration exceeded 20 percent within a month of the launch.

Additional Funding

To sustain this expansion, Fibrus announced that it has secured an additional GBP 35 million in equity funding from shareholder Infracapital, bringing their total investment to GBP 150 million. This funding supplements their existing GBP 220 million loan facility and over GBP 300 million in government funding.
