Chris Collins, Head of Network Build at Fibrus, said, "We're delighted to be able to bring the benefits of our Full Fibre network to even more communities in Cumbria. At Fibrus, we use a full-fibre optic cable all the way to the premises creating a quality and reliability that cannot be achieved any other way. This will make a big difference to local businesses and families in Silloth, allowing them to access more reliable broadband rather than having to rely on slow copper wires for their internet.

Cumbria roll-out

While Fibrus are best known for their full fibre coverage in Northern Ireland, the rural-focused provider has also started work bringing their gigabit-capable broadband to parts of England and Scotland as well.

Cumbria has been benefiting from Project Gigabit funding with Fibrus rolling out gigabit broadband to homes and businesses across the county.

At the start of the year, Fibrus announced they had connected 36,000 properties in Cumbria, including 12,000 homes and businesses in Workington, as well as laying cables to Kendal, Penrith and Aspatria.

The provider also started work connecting another 15 towns and villages in Cumbria in early 2024, including Windermere, Whitehaven, St Bees, Flookburgh, Great Broughton, Cockermoth, Distington and Keswick.

Alongside the Project Gigabit rollout, Fibrus has also provided £212,000 to community projects in Cumbria over the duration of their Government-funded contract. These projects have included £60,000 to help tackle digital poverty in the county, as well as £150,000 contribution towards Cumbria Wildlife Trust to help support bees and other pollinators.
