Commsworld Highlight Rural Northumberland Fibre Progress with Alncom

Commsworld-and-Alncom-FTTP-Rural-Countryside

Last year saw rural ISP Alncom enter into a new partnership with business provider Commsworld (here) to help support the rollout of their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across parts of Northumberland and Durham in England. The fruits of this agreement are now starting to show.

The original announcement didn’t contain much in the way of any useful detail and merely noted that Alncom would gain access to Commsworld’s nationwide Optical Core network, which supports up to 10 Gigabit connectivity directly to their premises.

However, in today’s announcement Commsworld states that they have now delivered significantly enhanced connectivity, bandwidth and resilience to Alnwick, which among other things has also supported the deployment of gigabit broadband speeds into the village communities of Longframlington, Longhorsley and Longhoughton.

The new services are said to mark the beginning of a complete overhaul of backhaul capacity to communities in harder-to-reach areas throughout the county. “The high capacity that these areas now enjoy will also allow Alncom to continue to deliver gigabit-capable broadband to village halls for free in the county,” added Commsworld (20 town and village halls have already benefitted from the free service).

Steve Wood, Commsworld’s Group Sales Director, said:

“We have delivered five optical connections in total, with one being put in place in just two weeks. As a result, we together with Alncom are fulfilling our pledge to connect remote communities, situated anywhere in Northumberland, to high capacity, resilient, and future-proofed pure fibre connectivity.

These new connections are just the beginning of Commsworld and Alncom’s vision to help provide all the socially inclusive benefits that better broadband connections bring to schools, businesses, community organisations and resident groups in not only Northumberland but also to the most remote rural areas across the country.”

Stephen Pinchen, Managing Director of Alncom, said:

“Utilising Commsworld’s resilient national infrastructure, we are able to deliver speeds of up to 10G now and with scalability of up to 100G, we are delivering the fastest fibre available, and also building capacity for the future.”

End.

    I wonder what their plans are and if the Commsworld deal is purely for their internet access i.e. would they do wholesale or a LLU type thing being such a small operator.

    I could see Commsworld buying them but I could also see Alncom wishing to remain local/independent as it also has a longer history going back to the 80’s as a computer shop.

    I suppose there is some sort of arrangement with Railside Telecom (or whatever the name is – CBA to check being on mobile and in the Facebook browser thing)

    Photo seems to imply Alncom offer Fibre-To-The-Portcullis. Also, that’s Lindisfarne rather than Alnwick Castle.
