Alternative network operator and UK ISP Brsk has this morning announced that they’re going to significantly expand the coverage of their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across Calderdale (West Yorkshire), which currently covers 23,000 premises and will now be increased to 47,000.

Currently, Brsk’s network already reaches into parts of Brighouse, Elland, Hipperholme, Bailiff Bridge, Hove Edge, Woodhouse, Rastrick, Lower Edge, Greetland, Stainland, Sowood and Holywell Green. But the additional areas of Calderdale to benefit from their full fibre investment will include Siddal, Skircoat Green, Salterhebble, Outlane, Copley, Bank Top, Lee Mount, Boothtown, Pellon, Ovenden, Illingworth, Holmfield and Northowram.

NOTE: Brsk, which aims to pass 1 million homes by 2026, is backed by investment from Advencap and the Ares Management Corp.

Overall, the operator – fuelled by an investment of at least £259m – is currently building out its new network across parts of West Yorkshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, and the West Midlands (Birmingham and The Black Country).

A total of some 41.2k customers (up from 28k on 1st Mar 2024) already use the service, which has so far covered 552,000 premises across the country (536,000 Ready for Service, which is up from 486k RFS on 30th Apr 2024) and 126,000 of those come from West Yorkshire.

Darryl Niewenhuizen, Brsk’s Regional Head, said:

“The meticulous planning, dedication, and hard work of our team has enabled us to surpass expectations and complete the first phase of our rollout way ahead of schedule. We’re thrilled to share our plans to connect even more homes and businesses in West Yorkshire with our award-winning full fibre optic technology, so that thousands more can enjoy lightning-fast internet speeds, seamless video streaming, and robust connectivity for various online activities.

We extend our sincere gratitude to the Local Authorities for their unwavering support and collaborative spirit throughout the entire process. Together, we have laid the foundation for a digitally connected future, empowering communities with better broadband, no mid-contract price rises and fair prices.”

Residential customers typically pay from £23 per month for a 100Mbps (symmetric) package and this rises up to £32 for their top 900Mbps tier on a 24-month term, which includes a router and free installation.

    At last we need competition as I am in one of those areas and the only gigabit service is virginmedia, city fibre was supposed to be in calderdale and was halted by change of contractor and heard nothing since.

    So be nice to see an alternative as the other providers in my area can only offer slower speeds and their is no fttp currently in my area I’m on virgins old Yorkshire cable / ntl:telewest tech, I bet they suddenly upgraded these areas due to this competition
