It says that other areas will be considered in the future.

A spokesman for the company said: “Up until now, Horsham residents could only get broadband service over hybrid fibre-and-copper-based broadband, which meant slower speeds and dropped connections - especially during peak times. 

“Full fibre, on the other hand, connects fibre from the exchange directly into homes and offices - and this makes a massive difference in terms of speed and reliability. 

“Hey!Broadband offers Gigabit internet speeds for both downloading and uploading - a whopping 22 times faster than the average broadband speed in the UK.”
