Broadband ISP FACTCO Target FTTP Rollout for Rothbury

The rural Northumberland (England) town of Rothbury, and its surrounding communities, have recently become the latest target for a new deployment of 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology, which is thanks to the efforts of UK ISP FACTCO and support from local councillor Steven Bridget.

The project, which is trying to attract interest from local residents and businesses, includes the communities in and around Rothbury, Coquetdale, Whittingham Vale & Glanton. Much of the funding for this is expected to come from the Government’s rural gigabit voucher scheme, which offers up to £1500 to every home and up to £3500 to SME’s to help them upgrade (recently boosted to £3000 and £7000 respectively via the Digital Borderlands Voucher Scheme).

The FACTCO team are already said to be connecting local communities in the Cambois and Amble areas (here) and have other plans to expand their networks across the North East of the UK in the very near future. So far around 200 expressions of interest in the Rothbury area upgrade have already been received and rising.

Lee Murphy, Managing Director at FACTCO, said:

“This level of engagement is fantastic from Rothbury and the villages around it, the community clearly understand the importance of good broadband in their homes and businesses and we’re very happy to be able to offer them a solution.”

Cllr Bridgett said:

“This is a real opportunity to put our area ahead of many of the major towns within Northumberland and future proof our internet connections which will be a huge boost to our rural economy but, to do that, we will need the continued support of local residents to help progress this scheme.”

Locals can register their interest by contacting the FACTCO team directly on 0333 305 7560, or by emailing hello@factco.co.uk or visiting www.factco.co.uk/rothbury.
