Baltic Broadband Expands 10Gbps Biz Connectivity in Liverpool UK

The collaboration between the not-for-profit Liverpool Internet Exchange (IX Liverpool) and UK ISP Baltic Broadband, which is deploying a 10Gbps fibre optic network to businesses around central Liverpool (Merseyside), has now gone live to firms in the Lime Street / Renshaw Street area. More areas to follow.

The new network was first announced at the start of this year (here) and at that point it initially only catered for businesses in the Baltic Triangle and The Fabric District parts of the city, although the most recent deployment into the Lime Street / Renshaw Street area won’t be the last.

Baltic Broadband has informed ISPreview that they’re currently in the process of expanding coverage to Ten Streets/Vauxhall, The Wirral and surrounding areas so that other businesses can also access “ultrafast” speeds from just £50 +vat per month. Apparently this phase of the roll-out is due for completion in November 2018, with the Wirral being forecast for completion in October 2018.

Plans are also being prepared for enabling other areas outside of the City, such as Sefton, Bootle, Everton and parts of South Liverpool.

Matt Wilson, Director of Baltic Broadband and IXL, said:

“We’re proud to deliver yet another 10Gbps into an area of Liverpool that has previously been denied from such essential Digital connectivity and with 1Gbps of it earmarked just for [the Training Plus Merseyside business], who arguably now have the fastest internet connection of any training provider in the region, we are excited to see how this will transform their business for many years to come.

No longer will our local community be denied the tools they need to sell our skills, trade and compete with others around the globe, Baltic Broadband and IX Liverpool are liberating business after business, street by street, lifting them up and away from the tired old and failed communications infrastructure that has suffered from decades of underinvestment in this region.

We are leading a step change in the Liverpool Community region and therefore issuing a declaration of war against the poor performing high price “dinosaurs” that think they can get away with delivering a sub-standard slow service to our Communities. Baltic Broadband is transforming entire areas with Ultra-fast broadband that its citizens need and deserves.”

The ISP also said they have a future target of delivering 100Gbps connectivity within the region before 2020 and on top of that they’ve got a vision to cover 100% of the Liverpool City Region within this same time frame.

We should point out that nearly the whole of Liverpool is already covered by Openreach’s slower 80Mbps capable FTTC (with a small bit of FTTP) network and Virgin Media also has a significant level of ultrafast 350Mbps cable coverage.

    Curious to see if any of the capacity will be used for G.fast which stated Liverpool was one of those area’s in the rollout. Either that or people in the Liverpool Central area haven’t taken it up realizing it’s a flawed technology.

    Seems not, they are a local not for profit by-passing BT and doing their own thing it appears. G/Fast is a failure and its about time someone did something about it, yes it should of been BT but instead it appears that the digital community have had enough and formed their own setup ixliverpool and fixed it for themselves, quite inspirational!

    Other cities take note!
