A world class ultrafast fibre company
The company is building its own cutting-edge network across Devon, Somerset and Dorset, providing speeds of up to 950Mbps for residents and 10Gbps for businesses.
Founded in 2018 by CEO, Michael Maltby, Jurassic Fibre is armed with £250m from Fern Trading, advised by Octopus Investments. So far, they have connected over 25,000 homes and businesses and are on track to servicing 300,000 premises by 2024.
Sidmouth resident Michael has experience building similar networks around the world, including in Russia and the Caribbean. Passionate about transforming the digital infrastructure of the South West, Michael returned to his home region to help bring communities and villages up to speed with ultrafast broadband.
Jurassic Fibre’s state-of-the-art network uses modern fibre optic cables, surpassing the old copper cables which many homes in the region still rely on for broadband and phone landlines.
In addition to delivering top quality fibre broadband for the South West, Jurassic Fibre strives to support local people, businesses and communities.
Since its conception, Jurassic Fibre has grown to employ over 250 people, making it one of the region’s fastest growing start-ups. In 2020, the company took home the title of Best New ISP at the UK ISP Internet Industry Awards, beating several national competitors.
Michael Maltby, CEO of Jurassic Fibre, said:
“Jurassic Fibre is the South West’s very own world-class ultrafast fibre company. Conceived as the region’s digital plumbing, our network will underpin the region’s reputation as the best place to live and work in the UK and ensure it is fit for the 21st century.”
