OFNL was the first independent company to own and operate fibre networks for the delivery of residential broadband services in mainland UK. We offer ultrafast fibre networks on new build housing and commercial developments – ready the day the occupier moves in. We connect homes, schools, community centres and businesses of any size, and are always looking to expand our networks.

Our networks are all gigabit capable and open access. We offer homeowners a choice of up to 17 Internet Service Providers, with a wide range of different packages including broadband, phone, and television. For our business customers, we offer a choice of over 80 business-focused Internet Service Providers.

We use fibre optic cables which go directly into the premise, providing a more reliable and better-quality connection.

We own, operate, maintain, and adopt the fibre network infrastructure and are committed to the highest standards of quality, safety, and customer service. The infrastructure is installed before the houses or businesses are built, minimising disruption at a later date.

We are part of the BUUK Infrastructure group of companies. BUUK is the leading independent provider of last-mile utility networks, serving over two million homes.
