Ofcom Propose Code Powers to Help MS3 Expand Dark Fibre Network in Hull

Friday, Apr 25th, 2014 (11:28 am) - Score 617

MS3 Networks has won provisional approval from Ofcom that would grant the operator Code Powers (making street works easier etc.) in order to help expand their independent and ultra-fast Dark Fibre optic broadband ISP network in Hull (East Yorkshire, England), which is already being used by a number of local businesses and competes with KC’s own FTTP deployment.

The new multi-million pound 116km long Dark Fibre network, which went live just over one year ago, has been keen to carry on with their plans by adding to the existing infrastructure and serving other business parks. Indeed today’s update from Ofcom confirms that MS3plans to deploy further fibre optic cables in ducts under both public highways and private land in Hull and the surrounding area.”

Tony Hales, MS3′s Managing Director, said recently:

We will carry on growing our network until we’ve covered as much of the city as possible. I’d like to apologise in advance for the construction which will be ongoing around Hull whilst we create a bigger network but I hope people appreciate that it’s because we want to provide Hull with an unrivalled fibre infrastructure which can support businesses in the city whilst also attracting new investment and job creation in the area.”

Precise details for the next stage (Phase 2) of MS3’s deployment aren’t yet known, although last year the operator told ISPreview.co.uk that it estimated the expansion would cost around £3 million and focus upon other parts of the city in the East Hull and North Hull areas.

Ofcom’s related consultation will remain open until 27th May 2014 and we do not expect the provisional approval to be reversed.
