Alncom Extend Full Fibre to 350 Premises at Barmoor Castle Country Park

Monday, Dec 11th, 2023 (12:01 am) - Score 400

Broadband ISP Alncom has announced that they’ve just added a another 350 properties to the coverage of their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network in rural Northumberland (England), which occurred after they extended their existing fibre in the village of Lowick to cater for the holiday site of Barmoor Castle Country Park.

The provider is currently aiming to build their full fibre network to cover 50,000 premises in the North East of England (they’ve already done 25,000) – mostly across rural parts of Northumberland, County Durham and the Scottish Borders – and they also have an existing Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network.

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.

The Barmoor Castle site was originally connected via a shared WiFi network, but this didn’t work particularly well due to all the nearby caravans acting like a faraday cage. In 2019, Alncom converted the WiFi network to a Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) service, with each lodge connecting via its own access point & router. This was a big improvement.

The latest change flows from the fact that Alncom last year completed the rollout of their FTTP broadband network to the nearby village of Lowick, so it seemed only logical to extend that fibre to the holiday site. The timing was well planned, as the park was in the process of undergoing an extension from 250 to 350 pitches.

Fibre has now been ducted to each pitch and the FWA network removed. Each customer now receives speeds of 100Mbps (symmetric) for £25 per month.
