ISP Alncom Expands FTTP Broadband Coverage in Rural Alnwick

Tuesday, Oct 31st, 2023 (3:30 pm) - Score 832

Broadband ISP Alncom has announced that they’ve begun the next phase of expanding their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across their home town of Alnwick, which is now working to cover the Barresdale, Windsor Gardens, Cedar Grove and Fairfields areas (parts of these are already live).

The provider is currently aiming to build their full fibre network to cover 50,000 premises in the North East of England – mostly across rural parts of Northumberland, County Durham and the Scottish Borders – and they also have an existing Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network. At the last update a year ago, Alncom informed us that their new fibre network had already passed over 10,000 premises, with 2,500 customers connected.

NOTE: Alncom –  using kit from ADTRAN’s TA5000 fibre access platform – is supported by investment from Railsite Telecom (here) and the government’s gigabit voucher scheme.

According to the latest update on the Northumerland Gazette, the operator has now passed 25,000 premises (more than double last year’s figure), which is impressive for a smaller and more rural focused builder. As part of this the operator has naturally expanded their Northumberland coverage too – stretching from Norham in the north to Seaton Sluice in the south, serving parts of many locations in between including Alnwick, Amble, Rothbury and Wooler.

Currently employing 70 people, Alncom is now looking to take on approximately 20 more employees this year.

Stephen Pinchen, Alncom’s MD, said:

“This move ensures that residents in these areas will no longer grapple with slow, unreliable internet connections. Also, with a commitment to inclusivity, a Social Tariff will also be available for those on benefits, starting at £15, making high-speed internet accessible to a broader range of residents, with a variety of choices tailored to different internet usage needs.”

Prices for their standard residential packages start at £25 per month for speeds of up to 85Mbps and that rises to the expensive heights of £90 for their top 925Mbps plan. New customers who order before December 2023 will benefit from a free installation, free WiFi 6 router and a 24-month contract with no mid-contract price changes. You can also add a static IP for £5 extra.
