Rural Yorkshire Village of Stockton on the Forest Gets FTTP Broadband

The Fusion Fibre Group, which is both a UK internet provider and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network builder, has today announced that the first homes in the rural Yorkshire (England) village of Stockton on the Forest can now access their new gigabit-capable full fibre broadband network after a £350k investment.

The local roll-out required FFG to invest £350,000 of its own money (no government vouchers were used) and the new network currently covers 377 premises (Ready for Service), which should increase to 492 once the local deployment is finally completed in the near future. The per premises cost of £711 would appear to suggest a fairly efficient build for this area.

After making their network live in late-February 2024, FFG has been busy installing fibre into local homes and businesses, while also expanding the network out to cater for more properties within the community.

Fusion Fibre Group’s Head of National Sales, Gary Spooner, said:

“This new network marks a major milestone in our mission to provide full fibre connectivity to rural communities across the county. And, it wouldn’t have been possible without the assistance of the Digital York Team.”

Customers of the service can expect to pay from £24.99 per month for a 200Mbps speed, which includes a TP Link wireless router and free standard installation. By comparison, their top 1000Mbps package will set you back £44.99 per month. New customers may also be able to get their first 6 months of service for free on a 24-month term.
