Full Fibre network operator and ISP Lightning Fibre Limited has confirmed a multi-million pound project to bring its new full fibre network to over 14,000 additional homes and businesses in Heathfield and Hailsham. The company has confirmed that works have already begun in both towns.

Work is already underway in Eastbourne and Hastings, and Lightning Fibre has now started construction in Heathfield and Hailsham. The firm is ‘building a future proofed cutting-edge full fibre broadband network and provides a quality service with the added bonus of doing so with a community-centric approach.’

Ben Ferriman, Lightning Fibre CEO, commented, “We understand that poor connectivity really frustrates people in Heathfield and Hailsham, so we’ve decided to level up both towns by extending our brand new, dedicated fibre optic network to give these communities the connectivity they deserve.”

Research shows that once an area has a full fibre 1Gbps network, property prices and local economies are positively impacted. Lightning Fibre is building high quality networks across East Sussex, creating quality local jobs and delivering a high-quality service at an affordable and competitive price.

Full fibre optic networks are not just the fastest, they are also the greenest - a full fibre network creates 88% less greenhouse gas per 1Gb compared to other broadband technologies. Residents and businesses are invited to register online for specific updates in their area as the company undertakes extensive construction works across both towns.

To find out more, register online today and our Community Engagement Team will reach out as we progress towards your home or business.

Lightning Fibre is an active member of the local Chambers of Commerce, and Heathfield Chamber and Hailsham Chamber members can enjoy 10% off all business packages.
