YouFibre, the new gigabit full-fibre internet service provider, has connected its 2,500th customer and is set to expand into more towns.

The ISP achieved 1,000 customer connections within its first year of operating and since starting work in more towns across the UK, it has more than doubled its first year’s connections in the two months up to October.

Ryan Battle, managing director of YouFibre, said: "More than 90% of these connections are in Peterlee, Durham, Spennymoor, Stockton & Houghton-le-Spring. These were the areas that YouFibre chose to work in first and we’re delighted that word of mouth about the broadband speeds has encouraged so many people to choose us in the North East.

"Achieving this number of customers in such a short space of time is exceptional. The broadband industry has overcharged and underdelivered for too long, we have broken the mould by providing faster connections and a better service at lower prices.

"Everyone should have affordable access to fast internet, so a whole household can seamlessly work, live and play online.

“This approach has given us a real advantage and made us the most attractive internet service provider option for customers in the areas we currently work in.

"We’re taking our service to even more towns over the next year and will be announcing these shortly.”
