Brsk Celebrate 1,000 FTTP Broadband Customers in Manchester

Thursday, Mar 30th, 2023 (11:25 am) - Score 1,184

Broadband ISP and UK network builder Brsk has today announced their relatively young gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network has managed to sign-up 1,000 customers on their Manchester deployment, which is double the 500 they had in December 2022.

The operator’s network in the city is currently live and serving homes across South Manchester, including around Sale, Didsbury, Stockport, Edgeley, Withington, Burnage, Heaton Mersey, Reddish and Parrs Wood. The build across this part of Manchester began last year and only fairly recently started to go live for customers to take. But they don’t say precisely how many premises they’ve covered in the city so far.

NOTE: Brsk is supported by funding from Advencap and the Ares Management Corp. Last year saw them secure “up to£178 million (here).

As we recall, the eventual plan is to cover 150,000 premises across the Greater Manchester area, with the next locations to benefit being Stretford, Cheadle, Gatley, Rusholme, Levenshulme, Longsight, Chorlton, Wilmslow, Wythenshawe, Timperley and Altrincham. Some of these locations are already fairly competitive with established gigabit-capable providers.


All of this feeds into their longer-term aim of passing 1 million homes by 2026 and they’ve already covered 150,000 premises across the UK (up from 100,000 in November 2022) – currently building at a rate of up to 20,000 premises per month and rising.

Gareth Cornelius, Manchester Regional Head, said:

“We’re excited and proud to see how well the project to connect Manchester to better broadband is progressing. The areas where we’re rolling out our full fibre have been woefully underserved for far too long and it’s great to be able to change the situation. And this is just the beginning! We have big goals in the pipeline, and plan to connect all of South Manchester by the end of 2024.”

Prices typically start from £25 per month for an unlimited 100Mbps symmetric speed package (inc. a free installation and router), which rises to £49 for their top 900Mbps package (it’s actually £45, but the £49 deal includes their Mesh WiFi solution for a change). In addition, there’s also a “guarantee” of “no price rises” during that term and most plans are currently running price discounts that last for the first 3-9 months of service.

    ‘But they don’t say precisely how many premises they’ve covered in the city so far.’

    This is usually a bad sign. They obviously know, so why not be open about it? Take up is way more important than a customer number. If they’ve passed 50,000 premises in Manchester they are in real trouble. 5,000 they are doing fantastically.

      seems to have passed 7500 .

      If 7500 is accurate then 13.3%… reasonable.

    If they’ve added 500 in 3 months then they’ve just about added every single customer who’s switched operator in those 3 months. 100% gross add share is phenomenal! The incumbents are going to get murdered by Altnets!
