How our community schemes work
Our fibre optic network continues to expand on a daily basis. We currently have over 500km of cable buried across the Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire & Hampshire countryside, used to connect up our 150 wireless masts providing super resilient connections and serving over 300 customers with direct fibre to the home or premises connections.
Our community fibre schemes are designed for villages, hamlets and areas where traditional copper cables (provided by Openreach) perform poorly due to the long distances from BT’s green cabinets or where our wireless broadband proves difficult to implement due to a lack of line of sight.
The government’s Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) are currently providing grants to small businesses and their surrounding residents to fund installations of fibre to the home in the form of a “Gigabit Voucher”. As a preferred partner, Wessex Internet are implementing schemes to provide ultrafast, future proofed fibre optic broadband to many areas across our coverage region. If you’re stuck with broadband that feels more like dial-up from the 1990’s and live within our coverage area, please register your interest by clicking here and filling out a short form.

New Community Schemes
If you can’t find your village or community listed above, don’t worry. We continually look for new areas that we think may benefit from our ultrafast full fibre broadband. The best thing to do is register your interest, and if you would like to become a community champion for your area, let us know when you register – our community champions help spread the word locally and rally support from their neighbours and local businesses. The more interest there is in your area, the more likely we are to extend our network to your community. Fill out a short registration of interest form by clicking the button below

Brilliant company. Brilliant Service, the works team superb, clean and tidy throughout the install. You would be foolish to not go with Wessex Internet.
After any years of very poor broadband with BT we were able to join Wessex Internet and have never looked back. Thank you.
superfast a bit disappointing. Worked superfast at first, but seems to have slowed down again.
