ISP Quickline Extends Wireless Superfast Broadband Across Selby

Fixed wireless UK ISP Quickline (Bigblu) has extended their superfast broadband network to cover thousands of additional premises in the North Yorkshire town of Selby, which was only made possible after the central Selby Abbey church allowed the provider to install a mast on top of their building.

The new infrastructure, which also means that visitors now have access to Wi-Fi inside the Grade I listed building, should ensure that broadband download speeds of 50Mbps (Megabits per second) can reach across much of the town. Selby itself is currently home to a population of around 15,000 and that could deliver quite a significant boost for the ISP.

As long as we have a line of sight we can deliver high-speed internet access to people who have barely been able to stream live TV or download any programme, music, file or image. It will make a huge difference,” said Quickline’s Head of Sales, Hayley Silvester (here).

At this point it’s worth noting that much of Selby can already access superfast broadband speeds via Openreach’s VDSL2 based Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) network, although there are some large pockets of the town that have yet to benefit from such an upgrade and thus remain stuck on slower pure copper ADSL2+ lines.

Prices tend to start at £29.99 per month for a 10Mbps (average) download speed with 5Mbps uploads and an unlimited usage allowance, rising to £59.99 for the fastest tiers. Installation is free if you can get a voucher from the Government’s Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme, otherwise you’ll pay £295 (one-off) on a 12 month contract or £195 if taking out a 24 month term. Quite pricey.
