Fibre-to-the-home coming to Wichelstowe residents
Residents living in the new Wichelstowe housing development close to Swindon are set to gain access to fibre-to-the-home broadband connections, with a choice of two service providers for them to decide from.

The Swindon Advertiser reports that initially, seethelight was the only firm set to deliver the high-speed technology directly to homes on the estate, but Direct Save Telecom has also signed up to the cause.

Chief executive officer of the latter Stavros Tsolakis explained that people living in these new-build properties were "in a very fortunate position", as the majority of residential premises in the UK do not have the option of a fibre-to-the-home connection.

He added: "We are delighted new-build owners now have a broadband choice."

Taking advantage of receiving fibre broadband in this way will enable local people to access much faster internet loading speeds than before, as well as allowing them to log on to the web on multiple devices at a time, enhancing their online experience.
