Quantum Broadband Look to Boost Lincolnshire UK FTTP Broadband Build

UK ISP Quantum Broadband (formerly Quantum Air Fibre) appear to be gearing up for an expansion of their ongoing efforts to deploy a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network “throughout Lincolnshire and the adjoining counties” in England, which provides ultrafast broadband to residential, business, and wholesale customers.

The provider, which originally started life as a fixed wireless ISP, began branching out into FTTP a few short years back. In 2020 they set themselves a target of covering 120,000 homes across Lincolnshire with their 10Gbps capable FTTP network and, at the last update at the end of 2021, they revealed that this network had already covered 5,000 premises and would reach 10,000 in Q1 2022.

NOTE: One of Quantum’s first home villages to benefit from this was Coningsby.

Since then we’ve not had any further updates from the operator. But that changed today after the company put in an application for Code Powers from Ofcom. Such powers are typically sought to help speed-up deployments of new fibre and cut costs, not least by reducing the number of licenses needed for street works.

The powers can also help with supporting access to run new fibre via Openreach’s (BT) existing cable ducts and poles (PIA), which is something they intend to harness. But other than that, the application doesn’t tell us anything particularly new, except for helping to confirm that they’re still active and moving their plans forward.

Customers of this service still pay the same as they did in 2021. Prices start from just £19 per month for an unlimited 120Mbps (symmetric speed) package on a 24-month term and with an included router, which rises to £60 for their top 1Gbps plan.
