UK ISP Baltic Broadband and the not-for-profit Liverpool Internet Exchange (IX Liverpool) have today jointly announced that their 10Gbps business focused fibre optic network in Liverpool (Merseyside) has been expanded to include the Everton and Vauxhall areas.

Prior to this announcement the collaboration had already brought 10Gbps internet connections to entire areas of Liverpool (e.g. the Baltic Triangle, The Fabric District and the Lime Street/Renshaw street area), which they claim is “helping to transform entire communities.” Now it’s gone even further to include Everton and Vauxhall.

This latest expansion begins from the new Ten Streets project along the Dock Road (where the regeneration has already started with the Titanic Hotel, Recording Studios, various music venues a makerspace) to the far east side of Everton Valley and also includes Commercial Road, Blackstock St & the Pumpfields area.

The Project Jennifer development on Great Homer Street / Scotland Road, located 1.5 miles North of Liverpool city centre, has also been covered. As a result local businesses can now access “ultrafast” speeds from just £50 +vat per month, although this reflects their fixed wireless solution and the comparable fibre prices start from £240 +vat (symmetrical speeds from 150Mbps upwards).

Matt Wilson, Director of Baltic Broadband and IX Liverpool, said:

“We’re proud to deliver yet another 10Gbps into an area of Liverpool that has previously been denied from such essential digital connectivity.

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.

Also, as part of this project, the partnership has delivered free high speed internet connectivity to not for profit organisations in the area that include a school, a church and a Youth Club in Everton and in the near future we would like to begin rolling out free Wi-Fi on the streets of Everton & Vauxhall, adding real value to these communities to build on for the future.”

Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool, said:

“As we work with partners to regenerate the city it is vital that the correct infrastructure is in place. This investment will make the area more attractive to businesses and is to be very much welcomed.”

Baltic Broadband is also currently in the process of expanding coverage around The Wirral and surrounding areas, which is forecast for completion in January 2019. Plans are now underway for enabling other areas outside of the City including Sefton, Bootle and South Liverpool.

The network has a target of delivering 100Gbps of business broadband connectivity within the region before 2020 and by that time they also hope to have covered 100% of the Liverpool City Region.
