Quickline UK Expand FTTP Broadband to 4 New Rural Villages

Broadband ISP Quickline, which is rolling out a new gigabit-capable full fibre (FTTP) and fixed wireless (5G FWA) network across rural and semi-rural parts of the North East and Midlands of England, has today announced that a further four villages across Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire have now been connected to their network.

The latest additions include Sutterton, Wigtoft and Huby in Lincolnshire, as well as nearby Sutton-on-the-Forest in North Yorkshire. The new fibre across this area is understood to have reach some 1,700 premises (homes and businesses). But work to connect some of the remaining premises in outlying areas is set to complete “over the coming weeks“.

NOTE: Quickline’s full fibre network already covers 65,000 UK premises (Nov 2023), which is up from 10,000 at the end of 2022.

Quickline is being supported by funding of around £500m from Northleaf Capital Partners and c.£104m of public subsidy from Project Gigabit (here and here). The provider holds an aspiration to cove around 500,000 premises in rural and semi-rural areas across Northern England and beyond with “ultrafast broadband” via both their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) and 5G based fixed wireless technology “by 2025” (here). Some 200,000 of those rural premises will be tackled by their wireless network, with the other half or more coming from FTTP.

Residential customers reached by their new full fibre network are typically charged from £29 per month on a 24-month term for 100Mbps (50Mbps upload) speeds with free installation, and that goes up to £49 for their top 900Mbps (450Mbps upload) tier. The first 3 months of service are also free.
