More new-build homes in the UK could receive ultra-fast broadband connections through Independent Next Generation Networks Limited's (INGNL's) deployment activity.

According to ISPreview.co.uk, the firm has 21 next-generation wholesale access networks (NGANs) in the UK and is looking to extend its fibre footprint.

INGNL's full-fibre networks allow broadband providers to deliver services at speeds of up to 300Mb.

The company said it expects to be "significantly" more active in terms of deploying fibre in the coming years.

Ofcom's proposal to grant INGNL Code powers - which would make it easier for INGNL to conduct street works - could help in this regard.

"The applicant believes that its NGANs will maximise the availability of fibre-to-the-home technology in relation to new build housing, which it believes is necessary in order for the UK to meet the EU’s 'Digital Agenda' by 2020," Ofcom stated.

"[INGNL] believes its NGANs are of benefit to the public because they will deliver 'turn-key' utility services to new-build developments, providing a single point of contact for planning, design, construction and call-off."

The regulator said that, for these reasons - and the ultra-fast speeds INGNL's network can deliver - it considers the granting of Code powers would benefit the public.
