ISP Grain Extend UK FTTP Broadband Network into Lincolnshire

Full fibre UK ISP Grain Connect, which is supported by £10m from Albion Capital, has started to extend their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to existing homes in North East Lincolnshire (England). The first location to benefit is the large coastal town of Grimsby.

Until recently Grain had tended to focus their “full fibre” deployments on new build home sites and large residential buildings (apartment blocks etc.), but that has gradually begun to change. For example, last month we spotted the provider extending to reach existing homes in the resort town of Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast, as well as Carlisle, Barrow-in-Furness and Blackburn (here).

At the time Grain informed us that they had plans to deploy networks from Aberdeen in Scotland and all the way down to the south coast of England. The latest location to join this club – as spotted by one of our readers (Daniel) – is the large town of Grimsby in North East Lincolnshire, which is home to a population of around 90,000.

Most of the operator’s build is currently focused near the central area of Grimsby (around the ‘Edward Heneage Primary Academy‘), but they also have some build taking place a bit further north up Hainton Avenue. The town itself looks to be a good pick for deployment as, at present, Virgin Media are the only other gigabit-capable rival with a serious presence (Openreach have a little FTTP, but not much and Grimsby it’s on their plan.. yet).

On the other hand, it’s worth noting that KCOM and InterneTY are both building FTTP networks a little further away, so it’s possible that Grain may face more local competition in the future. Otherwise, customers can expect to pay from £25 per month for a symmetric speed 50Mbps package and that goes up to £55 for their top 900Mbps plan. All of these packages come with an 18-month minimum contract term, free installation and a router.

    Good come South too please we have Quantum who don’t seem bothered and lightspeed who only seem to be bothered about Boston.

    I hope they include the whole postal town and not stop at the council boundaries – places such as Holton Le Clay, Tetney, North Cotes, North Thoresby are all covered by the postal town but in a different council area. Desperate to leave Virgin with their constant inflation busting rises but trapped with no FTTP or even FTTC in these areas.

      Oh you poor sod having to put up with Virgin. Try having no other options but ADSL and then cry me a river
