Trooli gigabit
By admin / Internet / 0 Comments

It looks like by the end of 2022 we may have an option for up to 1Gbit Fibre To The Home (FTTH) internet in Everton and the surrounding area.

A company called Trooli have started running fibre and I passed a Trooli van today on the side of the road near Fox Pond.

This is great news as we seem to be sandwiched between New Milton who have at least 1 provider of 1GBit internet supplied by CityFibre and Southampton who have a few options, most notably Toob for their extremely aggressive pricing.

Toob in Southampton are offering a 900Mbit up/900Mbit down service for £25 per month. Troolis pricing for a similar product (900Mbit down/300Mbit up) is a hefty £68 with the first month free. So almost 3 times the price for what seems like a lower tier of service.

Nonetheless, I see this as a good sign as competition in the shape of Openreach will almost definitely be coming down here too at some point in the future and we may then have a few options to choose from at last.
