Sea Fibre Networks has been granted permission to develop network infrastructure in Wales and Staffordshire, in a bid to deliver improved broadband services.

Ofcom has granted Code Powers to the company, which runs a fibre cable from Dublin in the Republic of Ireland to Holyhead in North Wales.

Following the media regulator's decision, Sea Fibre Networks will be permitted to expand its infrastructure and lease dark fibre lines in urban and rural areas of the UK..

This could potentially increase broadband access in parts of the British countryside, enabling more people to get online.

With the company granted Code Powers, the cost and time taken to carry out such work can be kept to a minimum.

Tom McMahon, Chief Technology Officer at Sea Fibre Networks, told that the company is now better placed to quickly deploy alternative networks and interconnection points.

This will help to ensure customer requirements such as lead times, diversity and network length are met, he stated.
