Fibre-ready homes coming to Whitehaven

Story Homes have awarded a contract to independent infrastructure provider, GTC, to deliver Fibre To The Home (FTTH) technology to its prestigious new West Cumbrian development.

We’re developing a new estate of over 550 properties in Whitehaven and have appointed GTC to supply FTTH broadband and telephone services across the site, offering exceptional broadband speeds. The technology provides both voice and broadband services of a quality that house buyers are actively looking for. wilsonhowe-popup

An initial phase of 30 executive homes, to be known as Wilson Howe, is currently underway, with the first houses planned to be ready for occupation in January 2016. A further 109 properties will form the first phase of an adjacent development named Edgehill Park. All homeowners will be able to benefit from fibre-ready homes, where they can simply plug-in to the high-speed broadband services in the near future. In addition, through GTC’s partnership with Sky, Story Homes will be able to offer new homeowners premium TV services including Sky+ and SkyHD, free for 12 months, as part of a moving-in package.

Louise McGuckin, Sales Director for Story Homes said: “We have had great pleasure in working alongside GTC to deliver superfast broadband to our customers on this exclusive development in Whitehaven. Our customers are looking for the wow factor and coupled with the high quality and high specification of the homes at Wilson Howe and Edgehill Park, a hi-tech offering fit for the next-generation is appealing to buyers of our homes. This offers them some of the fastest broadband of any new housing development, and also cutting edge telephony, using fibre to the home services, making slow, unreliable connections a thing of the past.”

Tom Brough, Sales and Marketing Director, at GTC, comments: “We are aware that homeowners not only want the highest speed and most reliable fibre connections and we provide this service to help housebuilders to meet with their customers’ demands and to provide that essential unique selling point.”
