Full fibre builder and UK ISP Brsk has announced that their rollout of a new gigabit-capable and “open access” Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network is being extended to parts of the West Midlands, with the operator anticipating that they deployment in the region will cover approximately 250,000 homes and businesses.
The operator, which is already targeting parts of Greater Manchester, Lancashire and West Yorkshire, first began their rollout – during early 2021 – in the village of Cottingley, which has since been followed by the towns of Keighley and Bingley, as well as Clayton, Allerton & Sandy Lane, Heaton & Daisy Hill, Burnley, Padiham, Bradford, Queensbury, Thornton, Accrington and many more.
However, this month will see the independent Full Fibre provider start the rollout of their network to a 4th region, which will extend across around 250,000 premises in the West Midlands and South Birmingham area. Some of the first towns to benefit from this will be Dudley, Brierley Hill, Kingswinford, Halesowen, Cradley Heath Stourbridge, Selly Oak, Northfield and Rubery.
Brsk are letting households know if engineering works will affect their streets by letterbox drop, as well as engaging with the local community and councillors to inform residents about the project and the benefits it will bring to their area. As usual, the operator will run as much of their fibre via existing ducts and poles as possible in order to minimise disruption and speed up the deployment. ISP Review
