New Full Fibre Network from Stix Internet Goes Live in Yorkshire

Fixed wireless UK ISP Stix Internet has announced that the first rural homes and businesses have just gone live on their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network near to Huddersfield in West Yorkshire (England), which is being supplied to consumers via their Northern Fibre sub-brand.

We first spotted the existence of this alternative full fibre network (AltNet) a year ago (here). But at the time little was known about their plans, except that they initially intended to deploy FTTP within their current (wireless) service area (upgrade solution). After that, the plan is to move into new parts of the UK and continue focusing on poorly served communities.

NOTE: The network is based on a 10Gbps capable XGS-PON solution from ADTRAN, which is fairly popular in this market.

Since then, the operator has been quietly building out their new fibre network, and the first two neighbouring villages to benefit from this have now been named as Clayton West (population of c.2,700) and Scissett (population of c.1,300).

Residential customers in these areas can expect to pay from £24 per month for their unlimited 80Mbps (40Mbps upload) package on a 12-month term (plus £50 for one-off activation), which rises to £55 if you want their top 950Mbps (450Mbps upload) service with free activation. The packages include installation, a router and a fixed price contract.

One of the company’s Directors, Ross Williams, informed ISPreview.co.uk that they had already achieved 500 premises passed. Going forward, they expect to pass a further 1,500 properties in the villages of Denby Dale and Skelmanthorpe by the end of Summer 2022, as well as 2,000 properties in the nearby South Yorkshire villages of Penistone and Hoylandswaine by the end of 2022.

These active projects are part of wider plans to connect 20,000 properties in Yorkshire by the end of 2023“, said Ross.
