Boundless Networks and Networx3 Deploy 1Gbps FTTP to Haslingden

Thursday, July 5th, 2018 (3:31 pm) - Score 1,360

Alternative network ISP Boundless Networks has teamed-up with Networx3 to bring 1Gbps capable “full fibre” broadband and Ethernet services to businesses in the town of Haslingden (Lancashire, England), specifically those based on the Courtyard business site along Grane Road.

The new network is being partly supported by public investment via the UK Government’s £67m Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS), which can provide vouchers worth up to £3,000 for businesses (SME) or £500 to residents to help them with the costs of installing a “full fibre” (FTTP/H) service.

On top of that the network will also act as an alternative to existing services from Openreach (BT) and Virgin Media in the area, which Boundless claims would be “unable to provide services that meet the requirements of the current broadband market let alone for the next 10 years.”

John Young, MD of the JY Group (local business), said:

“Before the arrival of this network we had to struggle and be creative to get broadband into the office. We used dongles, phones and all sorts just to try and get useable broadband. Now we have a 100Mbps FTTP connection we can do everything we need to and more! This connection means that all our broadband needs are now covered and we can get on with our day-to-day business.”

Caroline Earnshaw, Commercial Director at Networx3, said:

“Networx3 are experts at delivering large scale solutions in the telecoms industry. Working with Boundless to deliver this full fibre network right on our doorstep demonstrates our commitment to bringing the best available broadband infrastructure to areas that need it. Grane Road has been an exciting venture, nurturing our passion for local people and businesses.

We are very proud of our team and their efforts in supporting such a refreshing project and in addition to this we are proud to have the relationship we have with Boundless Networks.”

Business packages start from just £65 per month and residential packages from £20.99.

    Great stuff, well done Boundless. Beggars belief that the altnets can do it but the incumbent can’t. At last the government is supporting them instead of wasting money on FTTC obsolete phone line technology. Another area has escaped the superfarce.

      I live in Haslingden – about 1/2 a mile from this location i wonder if they have plans to provide service to housing estate I live in,

  2. TheFacts says:

    Looks like it covers an area where there is no FTTC, unlike the rest of the town, and specifically mentions businesses.

    1. Meadmodj says:

      Yes looks like this is one of those cabinet anomalies. Houses opposite the entrance in Grane Rd are showing 80Mbps from OR.

    2. NGA for all says:

      I assume this is hangover from BT’s Group belief businesses should buy private circuits to solve a copper distance problem. It seems easier to offer vouchers than establish a ‘reasonable request’ status for FTTP extensions off subsidised infrastucture.

  3. Jamie Potter says:

    The network was built as result of Openreach choosing not to connect any of the businesses to the DSLAM that is directly outside the entrance to the Business Unit. The businesses on the site have been reliant on 4G for their broadband services upto now so the ability to bring in an FttP network and allow the businesses to connect to 100Mbps services and above will massively help business growth in the area.
