Network Provider Brsk Plans FTTP Broadband Rollout for England

A new Bath-based network operator called Brsk Limited has just cropped up with tentative plans to deploy a new “open access” Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network to UK homes and businesses, albeit initially starting in the “north of England” rather than the south, where it’s based.

The operator first came to our attention as part of a request for Code Powers from Ofcom (here), which are often sought by new and existing operators in order to help speed-up the deployment of new networks and cut costs by reducing the number of licenses needed for related street works across the United Kingdom.

As usual the request itself doesn’t reveal much about their plans and the website appears to be a holding page for a future service launch, although they’re likely to make some use of Openreach’s Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA) product and “intend to deploy [their] FTTP network in areas that are currently not served by such networks.”

According to Brsk’s Company Details, the operator was first incorporated on 4th August 2020 and they appear to be supported by private equity firm Advencap, which is based in Mauritius. As part of that they recently secured around £613,651 worth of shares to help get the ball rolling.

The company currently has four listed Directors, although only Abel Daniel SCHOEMAN is familiar to us as he is also a Director for the Cheshire based F&W Networks, which is currently quite well funded and busy deploying FTTP broadband to 10,000 premises around the town centre of Horsham in West Sussex (here). Suffice to say that Brsk looks to have a fairly solid starting base and we’ll no doubt hear more about their future plans soon.

    A little bit off topic: I’ve just been notified via letter that Community Fibre is rolling out gigabit symmetrical fibre (FTTP I presume) to my area (LWNWEM, north London Wembley) but no indication as to exactly when. I’ve looked around for more info but my exchange is not listed anywhere I can find.

    Do you know where I can find this info? Even knowing if it’s 2021 or 2022 or 2023 would help with deciding whether to enter into a new 12 or 24 month broadband contract.

      Matt Warman promised improvement to Broadband, such as Gigabit speeds. Hopefully he delivers. We are still waiting in Skegness. We don’t even have Virgin Media as of yet. Would be nice to have these sort of speeds. I did notice BT have rolled out the Fibre 250 now, which is an improvement. Gigabit and 5G is what we need though.
