Virgin Media Sign LN Comms Deal to Boost Superfast Broadband in Yorkshire

Thursday, April 10th, 2014 (12:22 pm) - Score 983

Cable provider Virgin Media Business has signed a new 3-year and £350k deal that will help local ISP LN Communications to deploy super-fast broadband into 8 sites across Yorkshire (England) by the end of April 2015; including Castle Howard, Darlington, Barlby, Darley, Kettleworth, Bradley, Northallerton and Stokesley.

The deal represents an extension of LN Comms existing partnership with VMB. Under the planned upgrade an additional area of 12,000 km2 across Yorkshire will be placed within reach of the joint network, giving customers access to VMB’s “high-speed fibre optic broadband” and WiFi services. In addition LN Comms also runs local wireless ISP iLoveBroadband, which should also benefit.

Mario Di Mascio, VMB’s Executive Director of Sales, said:

We’re excited to bring great broadband at amazing speeds to customers throughout Yorkshire, especially to rural and more remote areas. This partnership with LN Communications brings the UK one step closer to its goal to provide 95% of the population with high-speed connectivity by 2017. The internet is a gateway to the global economy and we’re glad to open it up for the people and businesses in Yorkshire as digital technology is a key driver of growth for the UK economy.”

Simon Hayhurst, MD of LN communications, added:

Our partnership with Virgin Media Business gives us a connectivity boost that enables us to provide superfast broadband in areas that have historically been difficult to reach. Our innovative approach and strong relationship with the company, combined with the scalability of its network will mean a huge step in the direction of digital innovation for Yorkshire.”

Apparently plans are already in place to “plug individual business parks straight into the network, providing a digital boost to the local economy“. As usual there’s also the usual PR fluff about the network offering greater scalability, reliable service, consistent coverage and etc. etc.
