ISP Glide Deploys Gigabit Broadband to Businesses in Corby

Business and residential UK ISP Glide Group, which has built a national UK “full fibre” broadband network that reaches over 100,000 premises, has announced that their network is being extended to reach businesses in Corby (Northamptonshire), including on the large Corby Gate Business Park (i.e. an upgrade to their previous copper network).

The provider claims that every metre of fibre they lay in Corby is 10Gbps capable, via either FTTP broadband or symmetric speed 100Mbps to gigabit (Ethernet) leased lines. The build will be completed in two phases, with the first phase being due to finish by mid-August 2021.

Phase two will then roll out the new infrastructure and services to “all business and retail parks in the east and north of Corby town centre“, although this remains subject to approval. Glide aims to complete phase two – which will upgrade the connectivity of approximately 700 businesses – by the end of the year.

Tim Pilcher, CEO of Glide Group, said:

“Glide prides itself on its commitment to connect as many hard to reach businesses as possible, and our rollout in Corby will provide these organisations with award-winning fibre that offers fast and reliable connectivity. SME businesses took a hit in this pandemic and with the growing need for robust remote working and the very best WiFi, it is our priority to equip these companies with the best fibre connectivity possible.”

The move follows last year’s acquisition of the Glide Group by American infrastructure investment firm Alinda Capital Partners (ACP) in June 2020, which is reportedly said to have paid around £200m to acquire the business. We should point out that Glide also has operations in Ireland, Italy and Spain.
