Founded in 2018, Lightning Fibre is a local AltNet broadband provider based in Eastbourne. We're building and operating an independent Full Fibre broadband network, delivering fibre optics right into the Modem in your home or business with symmetric speeds up to 10,000Mbps. We have extremely competitive prices and we’re rated Excellent on Trustpilot.
We have been building our network in Eastbourne and Hastings since 2020/21, and due to high levels of interest from Bexhill, we have secured additional funding and confirmed our Network Expansion in early 2022. The whole area will be completed by early 2023.
What makes us different to other suppliers is that we’re a local, community-centric business – we are investing in LOCAL jobs, our customer care team are based in Eastbourne and we’re never too far away from you should you need us! No one else can promise this. We support local good causes, grassroots sports and participate in lots of local events.
In the summer of 2022, Hastings and Rother will offer nesting sites for 30 large Rubber Duck sculptures and a host of smaller Rubber Ducklings, creating a live art trail - 'Follow that Duck' - from Hastings Old Town to Bexhill on Sea. This fun, free, family friendly event will create an art gallery of fabulous creativity and inspiration within our local communities. Created by Wild In Art, the event launches on 24th June 2022 and runs for ten weeks through to September.
St Michael’s Hospice provides high quality, responsive palliative care and bereavement support across Hastings and Rother and works collaboratively with others to improve end of life care for all.
