Zzoomm Bringing FTTP Broadband to Northallerton in Yorkshire

UK ISP Zzoomm has just announced that the North Yorkshire (England) town of Northallerton, which is home to around 16,000 people, will be the next location to benefit from their rollout of a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network. Work on the build is due to start next month.

The move makes sense because the provider is already known to be deploying across the neighbouring towns of Thirsk and Easingworld, which makes Northallerton a logical target. One catch here is that Openreach are also targeting all three towns for their own commercial FTTP build, which is work that already seems to have begun in some parts.

Nevertheless, residential customers in the area can expect to pay from £29 per month for a 100Mbps package and that goes up to £99 if you want their top 2Gbps tier, which also happens to be one of the fastest home broadband packages available in the UK. But they’ll have to wait for the network to start going live first.

Matthew Hare, Zzoomm’s CEO, said:

“The construction of our brilliant fast Full Fibre network in Northallerton is another watershed moment for homes and businesses in a town traditionally left behind by traditional providers. Northallerton is a thriving market town, the primary retail and service centre for this part of North Yorkshire.

For the first time, homes and businesses in the Northallerton will have a choice of network. And what a choice: Brilliant Full Fibre for fast, reliable broadband at home and at work.”

The operator is backed by an “initial” investment of £100m from Oaktree Capital Management (here) and holds an ambition to cover 1 million homes across 85 UK towns by the end of 2025. Some of their other deployments, focusing upon semi-rural towns and parishes, can be found in parts of Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire (e.g. Henley-on-Thames, Hereford, Ascot, Cannock and Crewe).

  2. Frank says:

    No sign of any Openreach work on FTTP currently in or around Northallerton, maybe the bits they have done are the new builds on the edge of town? Anyway, Zzoomm is good news, be too late for me, am moving to a cottage in the middle of nowhere with 2mbps ADSL and no Starlink coverage – ahhhhh!!!

    1. GNewton says:

      Surely you could have checked the internet connectivity before moving to another house?

  3. Optimist says:

    Why did they choose a name which sounds the same as a video conferencing service?

  4. Frank says:

    They are not kidding, there are workman in Zzoomm jackets lifting manhole covers in our street now!!!

  5. SPENCER says:

    Haven’t seen any work around northallerton myself but I look forward to finally having access to better speeds! For too long we have lived in the internet dark ages!
