ADTRAN announced Zzoomm, a newly formed fibre network operator in the UK has selected ADTRAN as its technology partner to build a 10G FTTH network to serve suburbs and towns across the country.

Currently, there are 30 million homes and businesses in the U.K., but only two million have access to fibre networks and the high-speed broadband services they deliver. Zzoomm recently announced the official launch of its full fibre network and will begin construction this summer with the goal to connect one million of these previously underserved properties over the next five years. This 10Gbps service-capable network will afford these communities access to the most advanced residential and business applications available now and into the foreseeable future.

The operator is specifically targeting its services to suburbs of major cities, including London, as well as towns and smaller cities across the U.K. These communities are currently underserved by existing operators using copper-based infrastructure. Zzoomm will leverage the ADTRAN 10G fibre access platform with XGS-PON to support a highly-economical, symmetric 10Gbps service delivery solution at competitive broadband price-points.

Matthew Hare, CEO, Zzoomm
ADTRAN makes us feel like a valued customer, while also providing the expertise to help us build a strong 10G network foundation that will support the broadband requirements of these areas now and decades into the future.

Ronan Kelly, CTO for EMEA and APAC, ADTRAN
Our collaboration with Zzoomm to build a 10Gbps service-capable network is another proof-point that the market is choosing 10G PON technology over the previous FTTP solutions deployed over the past decades.
