Alncom UK to Build New FTTP Broadband Network North of Alnwick

Tuesday, Mar 19th, 2024 (7:15 am) - Score 760

Rural broadband ISP Alncom have this morning announced that the Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) has approved a new project, which will see them extend their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network further into the north of Alnwick area in Northumberland (England).

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 well over half that) – 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 latest network build to be added to their plans will see the operator cover another 1,454 properties North of Alnwick. This might seem like a small number, but the rural nature of the area means that the network itself is still geographically significant in size. The route will include Denwick, Rennington, Rock, Christon Bank, Embleton, Craster, Dunstan and Howick, plus all areas in between.


The project, which is part-funded by Alncom and part-funded by Government vouchers, is due to be built over the summer (2024).

Stephen Pinchen, MD of Alncom, told ISPreview:

“It is a ‘demand lead’ project, so if anyone in these areas would like full fibre broadband into their property, business or village, with free installation and 200mbps for £25 per month, it is VITAL that you register your interest immediately. The timing is dictated by levels of interest and if there is enough, we can begin the build before the end of March 2024.”

Locals in the area are advised to sign-up for the free government backed vouchers at www.alncom.co.uk, or by calling 01665 604816 or email info@alncom.co.uk to register.

    They’re an odd little company. I contacted them when I moved into the Alnwick area and they had no plans to build in my village (near all of those places they mentioned in the press release) but this seems to have changed now that Go Fibre have announced plans to lay fibre where I live, also in 2024 and their checker confirms that my address is one of them

      At least as an Altnet they’re more sustainable than quite a few others out there

      For “name”

      Yes …. but it’s odd for an Alnwick company to ignore Alnwick villages and Hamlets to build elsewhere and allow Go Fibre to waltz in to their patch

    I live in Alnwick and still cannot get fibre as no one wants to commit to underground cables for meadow riggs!!
