We're proud to have been featured this month in ISP Review - the 'go to' source for all UK Broadband news; for our recent 'go live' in Cottingley, West Yorkshire.
After a lot of hard work, and a fantastic response from the Cottingley community, we've delivered our 1 gigabit service to our first customers in the area. Our engineers will be onboarding new customers as we work through our pre-orders.
And now, we can announce that we're expanding our gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network to connect homes and businesses across Keighley and Bingley in West Yorkshire. We expect our first services in these towns to go live by the end of July 2021.
To read the whole article, you can visit ISP Review and see what they had to say here:
Our investment in this rollout will deliver full-fibre broadband to nearly 50,000 homes and businesses across both towns and surrounding villages in the area. Homes will be notified if works will affect their street by letterbox drops. We're engaging with the local community and councillors to keep residents informed about the project's progress.

Robbie Moore, local MP for Keighley, said:
"The Keighley constituency has been under-served by high-street broadband operators for some time now, and it’s clear in this new era of home working that fast Internet connectivity is vital in supporting our community to secure flexible and competitive jobs. As part of my plan to bring ultrafast broadband to Keighley, I look forward to working closely with brsk to see that Keighley gets the great service it deserves and needs as we build back better from the Covid pandemic."
To help, we're offering residents the opportunity to experience 1 gigabit per second broadband for free for six months with no obligation or commitment to use the service. This is part of a launch special so customers can use our broadband service risk-free. After the six-month free trial period, customers can choose one of the packages we offer.
Giorgio Iovino, Brsk founder and CEO said:
"People should have the right to try before they buy. Brsk should be measured on what we do, not what we say. That is why we are inviting everyone to use the service for 6 months for free. Everyone deserves the right to at least try world-class broadband."
Brsk aims to upgrade broadband infrastructure to full-fibre in UK towns that other broadband providers have ignored.
Giorgio goes on to add:
"I have seen first hand how gigabit broadband can create opportunities for people, even more so in a pandemic environment. The fact that the UK lags the rest of Europe in broadband rankings during this time means we need to act fast. We are looking forward to using our experience in scaling full fibre networks to get Britain ahead."
Full fibre uses fibre-optic cables to deliver broadband services to premises (Fibre to the Premises, FTTP), providing faster speeds and more reliable service than copper-based networks (Fibre to the Cabinet, FTTC). FTTP Networks like these boost local economies by providing jobs and making property more attractive while delivering a superior base for businesses and home workers alike.
Brsk will soon be adding a voice phone service (which uses your internet connection to make calls, like calls on WhatsApp or FaceTime). This means you can keep your current landline number and move away from your old and unreliable copper line.
