Wireless ISP Expands 50Mb Broadband Service to Thirsk in North Yorkshire UK

Friday, September 28th, 2012 (12:46 pm) - Score 2,125

Wireless ISP I Love Broadband (LN Communications) has expanded the coverage of its superfast broadband service to include the small market town of Thirsk (Hambleton), which is home to around 5,000 people, with more areas already being planned.

The development means that any locals able to see the White Horse attraction on Sutton Bank, which is a chalk horse that was carved into the hillside several miles east of the town during 1857, should now be able to access internet download speeds of up to 50Mbps (Megabits per second).

In addition the ISP has just received planning approval for 3 new masts in the Upper Wharfedale area, which will no doubt be used to expand the services coverage following this years related developments (here).

The providers packages start from just £12.99 per month for a 5Mbps symmetric service (10GB usage allowance) for home users and go up to £23.99 for those desiring the top service with “unlimited” usage (fair use policy).

    Great news for North Yorkshire.
    I’m off to the North Yorkshire Broadband Conference tomorrow where hopefully I’ll get details of when the BDUK/NYCC/BT project will deliver FTTC to Pateley Bridge where I live.

    Fantastic stuff, this is what altnets are all about, delivering to places where the incumbent can’t be bothered looking after. This company could lay fibre if it had support from government. It could bridge gaps with wireless. It can get people on quickly now with wifi and use the customer base to raise money to put more fibre in for the future needs. It can go the final mile and provide a service, which copper can’t. Well done to them. Why can’t government see through the copper hype? I cannot see the point in putting more money into exchanges and cabinets to serve higher populated areas when there are so many rural ones really struggling. Thank goodness for altnets.

    BT have just done the fibre to cabinet thing in some Thirsk itself, could do with service in the really rural bits. Thirsk exchange serves around 5000 premises, probably around 10000 people.
