Zzoomm, a UK full fibre operator, has announced Slovenia-based Iskratel as its latest technology partner in delivering FTTP broadband to millions of UK residents. In ramping up its fibre roll-out to hundreds of communities across the UK, broadband ISP Zzoomm will utilise Iskratel’s complete XGS-PON access solution including Optical Line Terminals and Optical Network Terminals.

Iskratel is also supplying its Lumia XG8 and Lumia C16 (XGS-PON OLTs), as well as Innbox X22 ONTs for the dual-box setup at customer premises, delivering multi-gigabit services. Zzoomm offers symmetric residential services up to 2 Gbps and business services up to 10 Gbps. Zzoomm aims to reach one million UK premises in more than 85 towns by the end of 2025.
