New ISP Yesfibre Planning UK FTTP Broadband Rollout

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 (11:07 am) - Score 2,766
green fibre optic cable expansion

A new Faversham-based ISP called Yesfibre, which was only incorporated on 27th April 2020, has this week cropped up with tentative plans to roll-out a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to homes and businesses in “selected urban and suburban areas across the UK.”

As part of their plan the operator has already applied for Code Powers from Ofcom, which can help to speed-up the deployment of new fibre optic networks and cut costs by reducing the number of licenses needed for street works to take place.

At present there’s very little information available about this new provider (we couldn’t find an active website for them either) and its sole Director is listed as Liam Dibley. The official brief merely states that they’re looking to deploy FTTP, which will be supplemented by a Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network in locations where fibre provision is not feasible.

The operator also intends to harness Openreach’s (BT) existing cable ducts and poles via the Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA) product, although that’s now somewhat par for the course in this industry. Like other new ventures they’re also keen to “prioritise the deployment of its FTTP and FWA network in areas currently not served by FTTP networks, typically areas served only by copper access networks.”

Separately, the established business ISP Commsworld has also applied for Code Powers (here) in order to support their own future FTTP deployments (they’ve previous preferred to use existing networks from other suppliers), although they’re of somewhat less interest to us due to their greater focus on business connectivity and leased lines etc.

    Once the fibre is in the ground then it makes sense to leverage it as much as possible.

    The writing is somewhat on the wall for rip off price leased lines – most businesses don’t need leased but did it as it was often cheaper than FTToD and symmetric. The price of leased has fallen a lot. OR’s symmetric PON, now under trials, would do for most largish branch offices.

    So I would see this as sensible business evolution. Leverage what assets you have as best you can.
