New ISP Brsk Expands FTTP Broadband Build to Lancashire UK

Bath-based ISP Brsk, which only recently started to deploy their new gigabit-capable “open access” Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in West Yorkshire (here), has now begun to expand into locations around the neighbouring county of Lancashire – starting with 50,000 homes and businesses in Burnley and Padiham.

The operator’s first deployment started to go live in June 2021 around the West Yorkshire village of Cottingley, with the initial plan being to then cover a further 50,000 premises across the towns of Keighley and Bingley. Since then they’ve also added the towns of Clayton, Allerton & Sandy Lane and Heaton & Daisy Hill to their plans.

NOTE: Brsk is supported by investment from private equity firm Advencap, which is based in Mauritius.

So far, most of Brsk’s initial deployment locations have existed across roughly the same area, and you can get a good idea of where they’re going next in West Yorkshire by looking at the maps below. However, the company has now revealed (Lancashire Telegraph) that they’re also going to deploy to another 50,000 premises across the two Lancashire towns of Burnley and Padiham.

Local schools in these areas will often benefit from being offered free connectivity, while residential customers will also be able to try their top 1Gbps (1000Mbps) service, for free and without obligation, for the first 6 months of service (after this you simply choose the package you want).

Giorgio Iovino, Brsk’s Founder and CEO, said:

“We’re installing new fibre cables throughout these areas and bringing fibre all the way into the home. Our network will provide higher speeds and more reliable broadband to residents.

We’re inviting residents in these areas to try our full fibre services against existing copper and wireless technologies, for free for six months. We’re confident that our full fibre network is the most future proof technology available as our demand for bandwidth continues to increase.”

Admittedly many of these areas are already covered by Virgin Media’s gigabit-capable broadband network, with Burnley and Padiham also having a few tiny patches of FTTP coverage from Openreach (BT). On top of that 6G Internet only recently started to extend their 100Mbps fixed wireless access network across Burnley (here), although locals may well prefer a full fibre solution to that.

Once live, new customers can expect a “no contract” (1-month term) service with prices starting from £33 per month for an unlimited 100Mbps symmetric speed package with a free installation and included router, which rises to £49 for their top 900Mbps package. Various add-ons are also available at an extra cost, such as a mesh WiFi solution, VoIP phone and static IP address.

    Why go to Burnley when Halifax right next to your build what you all ready doing

    1. Mark Jackson says:

      Between Virgin Media, CityFibre and some Openreach – Halifax may soon be too competitive for a 4th FTTP entrant to take the risk.

    2. Ray Woodward says:

      Becuase *nobody* (except Virgin) is anything at all remotely anywhere near there ..?

  2. Paul says:

    ok. When does this start to consolidate all of these altnets aren’t really sustainable. We seem to have more ISP’s than energy companies I can’t keep track of them all.

    1. Anonymous says:

      I’d love an altnet where I am (South East Northumberland) where only Openreach operate and we’re not in an FTTP priority area for them.

      However, within just miles of me, there’s; Alncom, B4RN (affiliates), CityFibre, Virgin Media and maybe another one or two including fixed wireless providers.

      It’s ironic because we are not rural but not as urban in contrast to Tyne & Wear so I sit in the middle of the altnets with about another 150,000 people with FTTC at the best. Still – could be worse.

    About time an ISP rolled out FTTP in Burnley. I’ve pre-ordered my 900 ultrafast broadband with BRSK.
