HENLEY-ON-THAMES, UK -- Zzoomm, a full-fiber network operator, announced today the construction of its full-fiber network in Henley-on-Thames is now underway.
Zzoomm's Full Fibre network will deliver speeds of up to 10Gbps to every property in the town, serving the 12,000 people living and working in Henley. Zzoomm expects to complete the work in 2020.
To support the build, Zzoomm has opened a regional office in Henley and is recruiting office and field staff locally. In total, the business expects to employ more than 30 people from its Henley base. For more information see jobs.zzoomm.com.
Zzoomm's ambition is to connect 1 million homes and businesses over the next five years in towns and cities across the UK that are currently only served by slower copper based broadband services.
Zzoomm has partnered with several leading suppliers including Hexatronic for passive network components, and Adtran who are supplying the next generation XGS-PON solution and equipment to deliver a 10Gbps full fiber to the premise (FTTP) service.
"The roll out of our network in Henley marks a very exciting time for residents and businesses in the area and it is a clear demonstration of the rapid progress and development Zzoomm has made since its launch," said Matthew Hare, Zzoomm founder and CEO.
"The people of Henley have been stuck with old fashioned copper broadband that does not meet their needs. We're going to transform their experience with Zzoomm's Full Fibre network," he added. "We're also pleased to see this week's announcement from the government supporting the rollout of full fiber. We're looking forward to seeing more detail on their plans, and encourage them to consider the regulatory support needed to achieve the goal of national full fiber by 2025."

The ongoing debate around GPON vs EPON can get as heated as discussions around politics and religion, but both technologies offer some advantages over the other depending on the needs your network is servicing.
In this webinar, we will focus on the facts around the GPON vs EPON debate and how that technological decision is almost always made based on factors outside the technology itself.
