, the altnet committed to delivering gigabit infrastructure to communities overlooked by larger telecom companies has announced that their Midlands South region is to expand to offer homes and businesses in Bewdley and Shipston-on-Stour access to speeds of up to 1Gbps both up and downstream.
FullFibre is installing high-speed telecoms equipment that is usually only connected across dense urban areas to increase the speed and quality of broadband coverage across rural towns.

The new service will connect those in Bewdley and Shipston-on-Stour who currently lack access to fast and dependable digital networks to a high-quality service.
Area General Manager Gareth Yardley at FullFibre says:
“The extension of our Midlands South region is yet another indicator of our rapid and successful growth as a business. Moreover, we are proud to be giving the power of ultrafast, gigabit capable internet to the local residents of Bewley and Shipston-on-Stour.”
Full Fibre has the goal of reaching over 500,000 premises by 2025.
