Full-fibre broadband has revolutionised the way we work, communicate and interact with the online world.

Alongside their commitment to maintaining outstanding broadband speeds, Community Fibre are passionate about giving back to local communities to help bridge the digital divide. They offer free training to local residents and Digital Ambassadors provide local digital support.

We chatted to Philippa Wibberley, Senior Channel Marketing Manager at Community Fibre, about the company’s fantastic broadband speeds and outstanding value, as well as its work in strengthening local communities.

Unbeatable full-fibre packages 

London’s workforce has fully embraced flexible working in recent years, with many professionals deciding to work from home for at least a few days during the week. To ensure that your work laptop runs at peak efficiency, it’s vital that your package includes the swiftest  Wi-Fi speeds available.

You don’t need to break the bank to make this possible though. Philippa explains: “Our 1 Gbps - package is the ideal all-rounder for all of your work and leisure devices. This 100 per cent full fibre deal is more than capable of handling heavy use households with no peak time issues while streaming content and hosting video calls across multiple devices. This package is suitable for all users and is exceptionally affordable from £26 per month.”

Full-fibre broadband has long been the most reliable service on the market. Community Fibre specialise in this cutting-edge technology, and none of their broadband packages use older methods such as copper.

“Many of our competitors do not provide a completely full-fibre service,” reveals Philippa. “As well as being the most reliable broadband technology, our packages are the most competitively priced in London – saving our customers hundreds of pounds against the major national providers.”

Committed to great value

Fair pricing is a major priority for Community Fibre when it comes to their customers’ bills. Switching to Community Fibre is completely risk free, as you can run their broadband alongside your current provider. “You don’t have to worry about being left without service if you decide to switch over,” says Philippa.

“Our friendly, dedicated team will get you up and running in as little as two days with no loss of service (as customers can run our full fibre alongside their existing service). Unlike some of our competitors, we do not skyrocket our customer’s bills with out of contract pricing once their contract comes to an end. The average Community Fibre customer will see their monthly bill increase by -£4 per month – one of the lowest price increases on the market.”

Building connected communities

When most of us think of areas that lack modern broadband infrastructure and comprehensive digital skills, rural areas come to mind first. However, there are many communities in London that require greater support to access broadband, improve basic digital skills and take full advantage of online opportunities.

Community Fibre recognise the great need within lower-income communities for affordable, full-fibre broadband. The company has launched a Community Investment Programme to help local people upskill within the digital sphere. “We understand the need for greater access to the internet across our local communities,” shares Philippa.

“That’s why we work with partners across London to provide free broadband to an ever-increasing number of community spaces and public libraries. We have many voluntary Digital Ambassadors who host weekly digital skills workshops to provide support for people needing to utilise the internet – from managing their finances online to staying in touch with friends and loved ones.”
