Brsk launches full fibre rollout in Ashton in Makerfield and St Helen’s

UK multi-award winning full fibre provider brsk is celebrating another milestone in their North West rollout. They have announced today that work is underway to bring full fibre broadband to St Helens in Merseyside, and neighbouring Ashton In Makerfield in Wigan, Greater Manchester, further increasing their national footprint which has already passed 552,000 premises.

Speaking of the network expansion into new areas, Chief Operating Officer Ian Kock, said, “Quite frankly, we think it’s criminal that so many residents have had to suffer with slow, expensive broadband for so long. Not to mention, the extremely poor customer  service that comes with it. Luckily, we’re on the case. We look forward to bringing broadband the way it should be experienced. Fast, affordable and fair – nothing less.” 

The investment will provide approximately 60,000 homes and businesses in the area access to full fibre, the fastest and most reliable broadband in the UK, with symmetrical upload and download speeds, and a guarantee of no unexpected mid-contract price increases. 

Bringing better broadband to underserved areas across the UK is brsk’s mission, which is no small task. Discussing what contributes to a successful rollout, Ian Kock credits, “strong collaboration between Local Authorities and Operators proves crucial to drive digital inclusion by making sure that world-class technology is available and usable for everyone, rather than a select lucky few.

In addition to lack of access to better technology, people across the country are struggling financially in this economic climate, yet major broadband providers are implementing annual price increases instead of supporting customers. We don’t believe that’s right, especially because customers never know exactly how much they will end up paying, when initially signing up. We believe in simplicity and, more importantly, transparency,” continues Kock. 

Brsk is increasing their extensive coverage across the North West and West Midlands within the UK, including Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside, West Yorkshire, Lancashire, The Black Country and South Birmingham.
